Fortis BitTorrent certified STBs

July 25, 2013

Fortis, a player in the digital STB industry, is now shipping multiple models of BitTorrent Certified devices for operators and consumers in Europe.

The Fortis STBs enable access to the world’s largest digital content library, the Internet Archive; with over two million titles available to stream or download. They also give access to a growing list of content exclusives from the BitTorrent Bundle programme: including media from Kaskade, Pixies, Public Enemy, Counting Crows, Death Grips, and others. Everything is bundled into one system, so users don’t need to worry about conversion, codecs, or file-formats.

“Integrating BitTorrent technology grants (consumers) access to our enormous library of licensed content and brand awareness with our 170 million monthly active users,” commented Bob Reid, VP of Consumer Electronics.
