    www.channelsurfing.net

    Alright, I can't claim all of the props for this. Member markshir posted the link in a different thread earlier but I'm not sure many saw it. I had just heard about a website like this today at work but didn't know what the website actually was until tonight.

    You can use this website to watch all kinds of sports or TV shows that are on some kind of TV via live on-line streaming.

    I used it to watch the ISU-OU b-ball game tonight when I found out I couldn't get it on TV. The stream was very high quality.

    Thanks markshir!!

    Yes, it's free. and, I was the first to post it, at least I think so. It is a pretty cool site, and has lot's of free sports. I wonder if it's completely legal?

    My apologies to whomever was the first to post it....

    I really have no idea about the legality of it all. Maybe I'll look into that and see if I can find anything.

    Wow, that is awesome. There is no way that can be legal.

    Re: www.channelsurfing.net

    Totally illegal, just FYI. People streaming this could easily be shut down and probably sued for theft of service.

    edit: Looking at it again, it appears to be aggregated feeds from various providers, so it's probably legal. However, the ESPN360 streams are probably not kosher to watch unless your ISP provides ESPN360.

    Re: www.channelsurfing.net

    So could we get in trouble for watching it?

    I haven't really seen it talked about much anywhere that I would trust... so I would use at your own risk.

    Bad news. The website doesn't exist anymore. It won't come up.

    Same problem this morning. They said it had database issues or something.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: www.channelsurfing.net

    Hmm. Maybe they are just having server problems?

    Oh well, even if they got shut down, I got to watch two ISU games that I otherwise wouldn't have been able to.

    Thats odd that it isn't working now. Maybe there were too many Clones watching the game this afternoon.
