Louis C.K. Made Over $200,000 After Asking For A Torrent Video Payment Of His Show

Posted Dec 14, 2011

Louis C.K. is one of the best known comedians today. Recently he decided to experiment with video distribution. He is distributing his performance from the Live at the Beacon Theater through torrent websites and is asking for $5 payment for it.

He has recently revealed the numbers he is seeing for the $5 payments through the torrent websites now. The performance costed about $250,000 and he was able to pay for all of that and making a profit of $200,000 so far. Not bad, Mr. C.K. If you want to buy it, you can use PayPal or pay with a credit card. There is no DRM restrictions and there isn’t any special preventative measures.

This is what Louis C.K. wrote about on his website:

I would like to be able to post more material to the fans in this way, which makes it cheaper for the buyer and more pleasant for me. So, please help me keep this being a good idea. I can?t stop you from torrenting; all I can do is politely ask you to pay your five little dollars, enjoy the video, and let other people find it in the same way.
