Pre-order a paid version of uTorrent

Usually when you see a paid version of a torrent client or other popular free software, you have stumbled onto a redistributing scam. Even worse would be when the software has malware baked into it and innocent bystanders are paying for the privilege of becoming infected. In this case, however, uTorrent is officially coming out with a paid version called uTorrent Plus. It has a subscription model and will run $24.95 per year.

What do you get for the money?

  • Built-in antivirus protection
  • HD media player
  • Convertor for Apple, Android, and other devices
  • Ability to remotely download content

Pre-order just opened up and the product is supposed to be released before the holidays. If you pre-order, you will get the subscription rate for 18 months instead of the normal 12.

uTorrent Plus is probably targeted more for novice and beginners, not uTorrent pros. You can get your pre-order in now at uTorrent.com. Of course, piracy is always a concern but hopefully it’s a better revenue stream than installing toolbars along with the application.
