Why don't you use BitTorrent to distribute the listings data

Post by rkulagow »

An analysis of the typical size of the data sent to users shows that BitTorrent or some other P2P mechanism would not be a good fit for distributing program listings. In the United States, there are thousands of lineups. Schedules Direct is not bandwidth-limited, so P2P really doesn't make sense in this application.
