TorrenTV Streams Video Torrents to Apple TV & Roku: Netfreex
July 28th, 2014
If you’re an avid movie watcher, you might have heard of Popcorn Time. Released earlier this year, the infamous software allowed you to watch movie or TV shows on your computer via peer-to-peer technology. Aside from its user friendly interface, what makes Popcorn Time so great was that instead of waiting for the whole video to be downloaded as with most torrent clients, it let you stream the movie immediately. A new app called TorrenTV does just that, but through Apple TV and Roku devices.
TorrenTV is available for Mac, Linux and Windows computers. To use the program, install it on a computer that’s on the same network as your Apple TV and then drag a torrent or a magnet link to its window. Roku users on the other hand will need to add the TorrenTV channel before they can stream. The developer behind TorrenTV says he’s working on adding support for Chromecast soon. You can learn more about the app from the developer’s Medium post.
