Welcome to the Future

Bittorrent (which I use regulary) will be used to distribute movies by both Warner Bros and Apple. It will likely feature in a new version of Mac OS X, either later this year or early next year and be used to speed up (and make it easier for Apple) distribution of software updates and videos, that will be sold through the iTunes store.

As for Warner Bros they are going to start selling around 200 movies using Bittorrent.
A step in the right direction, but both Apple and Warner Bros will be using DRM on their video files.

Warner Bros DRM only allows playback on a computer, but nothing is known about Apples video (which will likely be a less evil DRM).
