I'm afraid I'm not enough of a NIN fan to pursue this, though I did see them on tour (with Bowie!) once.
However, this is just another "legal" torrent to continue the recent movement of using torrents for legitimate distribution (yes, I know this has always been around, but its starting to "bubble up" into the public consciousness). I recently read of a 7.5 hour "documentary" on the Bergens-Benen train run (in Norway) in 720p that's available for free as a legal torrent. Now, most of you are probably shaking your head, but to me that sounds terribly interesting and I might just have to go get that.
I am very pleased to see good-quality "premium" content being distributed legally via P2P and I hope the trend continues.
Hats off to NIN for this!!! I will download the Apple TV copy... hmmm, it's almost 5 Gs. I suppose i will need to be buying a bigger Apple TV. Hmmm...
Torrent, may have it's limited uses for legal distribution. the Blu-Ray copy is 25Gs! That would take the better part of a week to download. It's unrealistic. If you have the $100 a month internet package then who cares but what do you do with a 25G file.
