OTT News is a brand new video streaming app and service, released by BitTorrent Inc. , that is designed to offer live video coverage of the New Hampshire Primary, with a dedicated team of journalists hired to provide coverage.

What's unique about this live streaming app is that it doesn't use conventional content delivery methods, relying instead on peer-to-peer technology. The app uses technology written for BitTorrent Live.

This streaming app is truly a visionary offering in that it is the first app to officially make use of peer-to-peer streaming technologies. With BitTorrent Inc. already seeking new partners, it's apparent that this technology, which has long been used in computing circles, is set to take video streaming by storm in the coming years.
