Worried about illegal torrent sharing of movies, TV episodes and other video content? Worry no longer! GTTV, a great new start-up has nailed the first peer to peer LEGAL movie sharing offering and is raising money on Kickstarter to fund the project. Already with studio contracts and a major retail distributor this service is set to skyrocket, especially in Australia where the legal download offerings are below international standards. No wonder Australia takes the crown when it comes to illegal download of content.
GTTV has today launched a campaign on Kickstarter to raise $1.8 million and is hoping to launch the service commercially in July 2015.
It is the brainchild of founder Rhett Sampson who has been working on the project for more than two years. He told Fairfax Media most of the major production houses and all the independents have agreed to provide movies.
Sampson is not new to the on-demand business. His previous company, Digital Lifeware, had kiosks that burnt software packages onto DVDs on the spot at Big W and Harvey Norman stores.
