Image Entertainment is responsible for dozens of independant movies making it othe mainstream, one of the most famous being Morgan Spurlock's Supersize Me. The service is scheduled to launch this fall. BitTorrent nor Image Entertainment released detaisl on the pricing structure for the new content, but Ashwin Navin, BitTorrent's co-founder claimed "We'll be able to offer consumers a subscription service that will be comprehensive."
