Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group has partnered with BitTorrent Inc. to sell movies and television content via the company's peer-assisted delivery system. In doing so, Warner becomes the first major studio to provide legal video content for BitTorrent's platform.

The service is expected to launch this summer and will initially feature more than 200 WBHE releases including newer titles such as “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride,” “Dukes of Hazzard,” “North Country,” and “Rumor Has It,” as well as catlog titles such as “The Matrix,” “Dog Day Afternoon,” “Natural Born Killers,” and “National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation.” TV programming will include shows such as “Babylon 5” and “Dukes of Hazzard.”

BitTorrent will offer U.S. consumers legal content on both a video-on-demand (VOD) and electronic sell through (EST) basis, day-and-date with the DVD release.
