    I at first thought this was going to be a spam post by the title of the thread. I have actually tried this out and I am fairly impressed with the quality of the live streams.

    This is a great website. It works great on safari. I have uafaker installed. It doesn't work if you have this installed and have it on anything but iphone safari. And on skyfire you have to go to iphone mode. But then it works great. It took me a minute to figure that out. Works great on the desktop also. Thank you op this is a great find. :p

    Wow, this is actually legit. It works! I cant imagine it will last long though. I mean, the guy is a billionair. You don't usually get there by being a total idiot. If he is not gaining something from this, he will shut it down I would imagine, especially with every network suing.

    I think when they say legit, they are using it to mean the site actually exists. And that it is legit live tv, which it is. I don't see where anyone called it legit internet tv.

    Now whether or not it is legal is a different discussion.

    Exactly, so why sue? You still see the ads that the network airs, it's not like they're editing them out or anything, so don't they still get their money?

    This site is awesome. Works great on my 3GS. I don't understand why tv executives would dislike the site. The feeds are free over the air. If anything it would give them more viewers and therefore would also give them higher ratings. It's a win win if you ask me.

    Wow nice site - hope it lasts. I was looking for something like this for my dad to watch tv on his ipad while waiting in the car. He had an old hand held television that worked great until everything went digital. :(

    The guy that owns that site was in court on Friday. I still have not heard the verdict but I assume things went good since the site is still up.
