EU aims to replace TV with Bittorrent

Researchers in 21 different European nations have come together to create a project designed to bring live BitTorrent streaming to the Internet and to change the way that content is viewed by the average consumer. The $22 million project, called P2P-Next, is a zero-server solution that combines traditional BitTorrent streaming with new technology dubbed Give-To-Get which rewards people with bandwidth for sharing on the site. The hope of these researchers is that the new technology will allow users to stream content to thousands of people using only the same amount of bandwidth that would be used now to stream to only one or two people. The testing has just begun and the code for the new technology isn’t even expected to be stable for another month or so but the researchers are actively hoping to be able to implement this new product soon.

but how…???there is a difference when just i m leeching and 20 other guys are leeching with only 1 seeder.

take this scenario u r uploadin a video in which u r the only seeder and there are like 10 leechers now what this new protocol does is that it wont let any of the leechers have any part of the file unless they upload to other leechers where in normal bittorrent only the total amonut of data uploaded is counted
