This could seriously revolutionize streaming services.
In essence it's gonna eliminate most problems with traditional streaming services, such as lag and buffering problems and reduce the costs of hosting the content by an incredible amount.
Even if more people tune into the same feed it will stay lag-free, since the viewers will be sending their video feed (or parts of it) to other viewers.

BitTorrenting in general is a genius idea, essentially making hosting files almost free.
I hope this will bring some good publicity to BitTorrenting, it's not just used for piracy; the applications of it are countless.
