There’s No Way This Is Legal:

Someone whose identity shall remain off the books sent me this link: TV Links. If you click it, you will be taken to a site that contains full screen, great quality copies of many episodes from more television shows than you even knew existed. I mean a metric sh!t ton of videos. Full episodes. They seem to be linking to videos all over the web, but they are doing something to make them play in their own flash player, so its all a little suspect. But its a UK address, and is probably hosted in Sweden or something, so we’ll see how this one pans out. So far, I will say that the user experience on here is better than Joost [equal if not better quality vids, faster streaming, more choice, better programming]. You could lose yourself for days in there.  I’m watching Balls of Steel, so there!

    Nice find, although I’m doubting how long this will last. I agree with you about the benefits over Joost, but the quality at TV Links is really terrible. I’m not sure how you were watching Joost, but the quality seems to me to be slightly less than SD, whereas TV Links is nothing more than YouTube quality. If they improved their quality, I bet the MPAA, etc. would be all over them even faster.

    On the same note, there is the site: http://www.watchtvsitcoms.com which also has full movies (like Andy’s favorite: Spiderman 3)

    my issue w/joost is that the video is often encoded very poorly, so even though it is high res, it gets blocks and motion artifacts more than youtube et al tend to get. and joost stutters through every single video you try to watch- why they can’t figure out how to let it buffer enough to play through without pauses is beyond all comprehension. i agree that this service is just repackaging youtube content, but at least it buffers and plays faster and more smoothly.

    what I like about watchtvsitcoms.com and all of this is their legal agreements. watchtvsitcoms is allegedly based in russia, but claims to be from Alberta. I don’t know Canadian law, but I do know that if a company is cheesed, there are international copyright enforcement rules that are fun. there aren’t as many grey areas in worldwide copyright law as these sites claim.

    frankly, no idea why it should be illegal. how about consumers get more protections from price gouging?

    Can I just say what a aid to search out somebody who actually knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know how you can deliver a problem to gentle and make it important. Extra individuals have to learn this and understand this side of the story. I cant consider youre no more popular because you definitely have the gift.
