I don't have a BitTorrent Client, how do I get a bundle?

With new BitTorrent Now apps for iOS, Android, and Apple TV, in addition to downloading artists’ bundles, you can now stream content wherever you are - check out the apps.
 
If you prefer to download one of BitTorrent Now’s offered bundles and this is your first time using BitTorrent and, we recommend the following steps:
 
For PC:
 
1)  From the BitTorrent Now website, click the "Purchase this bundle". Fill out the required payment information and click 'Purchase Now'
 
2) Select either the BitTorrent Client installer or the standalone torrent file option.
 
3)  If the installer is downloaded, launch the installer by clicking on the item at the bottom of your browser window or directly from your downloads folder.
 
4)  Launch the Client. In the top window, your bundle should be in the torrent list, where you’ll see the status as “downloading”, and you can monitor the progress from there. When the progress bar is complete, the status will change to “seeding”; you can now open the files!
 
5)  Double-click each file to open  the containing folder. You can drag any audio tracks into your player of choice (iTunes, Windows Media Player, VLC), and videos should open in your media player, too. If you receive any messages that a file format is not supported, consider or player like VLC or you can also upgrade to BitTorrent Pro, which gives you access to a number of codecs for playing different file types.
 
For Mac:
 
1)  From the BitTorrent Now website, click the "Purchase this bundle". Fill out the required payment information and click 'Purchase Now'
 
2)  If the BitTorrent.dmg and the .torrent file are both downloaded, open the Client application folder by clicking on the BitTorrent.dmg file at the bottom of your browser window or directly from your downloads folder.  Drop the BitTorrent Client into your Applications folder.
 
4)  Next, you’ll need to open the torrent file, which you can either do directly from your browser’s download manager, or you should be able to find the .torrent file in your downloads folder. Double-click, and BitTorrent should open.
 
5)  In the top window, your bundle should be in the torrent list, where you’ll see the status and “downloading”, and you can monitor the progress from there. When the progress bar is complete, the status will change to “seeding”; you can now open the files!
 
6)  Open the files by either click on the magnifying glass next to bundle name, or you’ll be able to find the files in your Mac’s downloads folder, usually in a folder with that has the name of your bundle.
 
7)  Double-click each file to open the media. You can drag any audio tracks into your player of choice (iTunes, Quicktime, VLC), and videos should open in your media player, too. If you receive any messages that a file format is not supported, consider or player like VLC.
