Olympics Proliferate on P2P Networks

14 Aug

Even though you can get it on TV, viewers are getting the Olympics via alternative networks.

Millions have turned to peer-to-peer (P2P) networks for high-definition (HD) video from the Beijing Olympic games, despite the fact that much of the content is widely available for free online.

Just a few days after coverage of the Olympic Games began, TorrentFreak reports that a high-definition version of the Opening Ceremonies was the most popular file on P2P networks last week. So far, more than a million users have downloaded the 5GB file, with more being added every day.
