Nope.
It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the cellular level I'm really quite busy.

God (me) wrote:That would be about £8 per person in Britan...

Family guy isn't shown on terrestial analogue, and up to date Simpsons isn't either.

All the other shows (Lost, Pinky and the Brain) etc aren't shown at all, at least on free-to-air tv.

A lot of people I know have found these links to family guy, and gone on to buy box sets etc.

People who missed the beginning of Lost keep their interest up by watching the beginning on the interwebz..

Apart from this extortionately over-estimated figure, do FACT even have any legal jursitiction in England? or have we got another MPAA on our hands?

Me thinks the British won't bend over and take it as easily as Americans

I quite liked TV links.
Was watching Trapdoor quite happily.

TV links was good but thankfully there are plenty of sites waiting to take it's place.

Some quick googling reveals the following:

http://www.flickpeek.com/
http://www.peekvid.com/
http://tv-video.net/
http://sharetv.org
http://allsp.com/ and http://www.4spark.com/ for South Park

And I'm sure you can find many more.

The FCC have voted to end net neutrality. It won't affect people outside of the US, but... I dunno. Does anyone think the EU/Britain will follow suit?

The EU? No.

Britain? After Brexit, I'd be slightly more concerned about the corporations trying it over here...

But the only one that could potentially influence this is Openreach ... there are many different ISPs but most rely on Openreach. But Openreach aren't an ISP.
