Torrent Streaming is a technology that we have been using for more than a decade. However, Apple TV will now allow torrent streaming thanks to an app.

How do we stream torrents on an Apple TV?

All you have to do is get the TorrenTV app.? TorrenTV is an open source service that allows Apple TV users to stream torrents.

Once you have the app installed, all you need to do is drag and drop torrents into the window on your desktop. It is so easy and the app will do the rest for you.

You can even stream any media just like downloading it. However, you must have sufficient information about the media that you are streaming. Otherwise, it will not play.

In case you have not noticed, torrent streaming is not always legal. They brand it illegal in the first place. But if you are really up to it, you might want to take caution when streaming copyrighted digital data.

TorrenTV also works with magnet links, file types which are starting to pop up on sites like the Pirate Bay.

According to a TorrentFreak developer known as Carlos (he preferred it that way), the TorrenTV builds on Popcorn Time, a pirate counterpart of Netflix.

?Popcorn Time is beautiful in code and in looks but I wanted to do two things that Popcorn Time didn?t allow me, watch movies directly on my TV and add new torrents which Popcorn Time doesn?t have yet,?

Carlos started coding just a few weeks later when the TorrenTV was developed.

However, the TorrenTV does not provide an index of movies, unlike how Netflix does things. TorrenTV will just allow you to add torrents and stream them directly to your Apple TV

TorrenTV is now available for?download. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux. Updates will be posted regularly upon installing the software.
