Once the price of ASICs come down, it would be great to have people able to buy a TV box that they plug into their network and to the TV.

You would have a menu of potential TV shows and movies. When you select the show you want to watch, it sends your accumulated bitcoins to the bittorrent user that loaded up the torrent.

As people choose similar shows, the box can just queue up the next show that most people pick after the show you picked. So it would be like watching a full TV channel.

And by sending BTC to the uploaders, people will be encouraged to create their own content in exchange for BTC.

Sure, plenty of people would upload ripped movies and Hollywood TV shows, but Hollywood will become a thing of the past. New, decentralized content will be the wave of the future.

hmm, I had not considered it as a private tracker...the key would be that anyone can upload a file anonymously. This would allow wikileaks types of videos to be shared as well.

It could even automatically connect via Tor as well.
