Jays fans turn to StreamTorrent to watch Sportsnet One games
Not to be denied, Toronto Blue Jays fans angry over Rogers Media recent decision to move 25 games between August 14th and the end of the 2010 baseball season from regional Sportsnet channels to Sportsnet One are telling Digital Home that they are turning to the internet to watch games.
Using a peer-to-peer streaming program called StreamTorrent, readers say they can watch Blue Jays games broadcast over Sportsnet One streamed over the internet, albeit with a two to three minute delay.
Stream Torrent makes use of the P2P protocol to broadcast video online, helped by thousands of users worldwide who share the workload by sending and receiving data at the same time.
