The developers of the most popular torrent downloading client, uTorrent have announced that they will soon offer a premium client under the name of uTorrent Plus, for the users looking for extra features.
Jordy Berson, Director of Product Management, at BitTorrent said that the premium services in form of uTorrent Plus are not going to affect the free uTorrent client in any way and users will receive the same level of commitment and development resources as it does now; as an assurance to 100 million active users of the most used BitTorrent client.
Expected to release later this year, BitTorrent hasn’t released major details related to the project, except the following:
µTorrent Plus is designed for people who are looking for a single solution to find, get and play content anywhere, on any device. Hassles with codec and conversion issues, struggles with device shifting, and more will be a thing of the past.
Invitation to uTorrent Plus
Hopefully, more details regarding the project will be available soon. If this information entices you, then you can sign up here to receive the updates and invitation to early betas.
Although it’s strange that a client which most of the people use to download free and pirated versions of paid softwares will itself be available as a paid version as well. Sooner or later, it will be ripped on torrents as well like any other paid software.
It’s on BitTorrent, how alluring the features of uTorrent Plus are to make the users pay for the premium version or how to control the spread of it’s copies on the internet. Anyone?
