It has all of the same features, plus a few very tasty extras: built-in virus scanning (and treatment), an integrated media player, automatic transcoding for devices (smartphones, tablets, consoles), and a version of uTorrent Remote that lets you manage your torrents from anywhere and download the completed files. For now uTorrent Plus is an invite-only beta test, but when it launches it will cost $25 per year."
