The way that the service works is a little different. Users browse movies and TV shows on BitTorrent's web site, and the site is has a smattering of useful tidbits on product pages, such as RSS feeds for each studio's movies, email-a-friend links, digg links, and del.icio.us links. Clearly BitTorrent is looking to make it easy to share this information with others and tap into recent trends.
Searching for movies and shows is simple. The site has a listing of genres down the left side for casual browsing, or the user can search for a specific title using the search box on the site. The files that are downloaded from BitTorrent's web site are just torrent files, which can be opened by any BitTorrent client on any platform—however, the movie files that are downloaded through the resulting torrent are DRMed Windows Media files (.WMV), which means that they can only be played under Windows.
