Watching pirated movies on a TV set just got a lot easier — at least in Europe. TorrentFreak.com, which tracks BitTorrent usage, reported on Wednesday that a new settop box using the Android system, the BBK BitTorrent box, can download movie and TV show files automatically and anonymously. In its description of the unit, TorrentFreak also observed, “Users are able to add torrent files through the built-in web browser or load torrent files from a USB drive.The BitTorrent box then takes care of the downloading and the file can be played instantly when the download is finished.” The box has a pricetag of 90 euros (about $120) but currently is available only in European countries.
