    You can stream HDi local and some International channels. It's pretty cool...well, except for the porn channels. :rolleyes:

    Best of all, it's all free, unless you want to subscribe to get more channels. :D

    nope. no spam. just saw an article on it today. I don't know how long the website will be up and running, because the major stations are getting ready to file a suit.

    Someone posted about this site the other day. Still isn't working for me though. Just spins like it's loading but nothing ever happens

    I saw this posted sometime last week and actually used it to watch some football games on Sunday.

    I got to watch the games on Fox and CBS. It was super cool, and I didn't really have any problems (the only problem was caused by lack of signal. My office doesn't get the best reception). I've used it on both my iPad and my iPhone.

    How is that site still up? I mean it's awesome, but no way the networks will let this continue for long.

    The likes of Channelsurfing, Atdhe and a whole host of others have been doing this for years without reprieve. This one (and Veetle, though it has a different platform) happen to be the few iDevice friendly ones so far.

    Someone did post about this a while ago. And every concluded to the fact that it crashes for iPad.

    I do not recommend this.

    I'm not sure if its a coincidence -- but after watching video on this site for awhile, my iPad suddently crashed and did a spontaneous hard reset. My iPad hasn't crashed on me since I got it in April

    It is free for now. But they are planning to charge 9.99/month later.

    It happened to a lot of people. I do not recommend using this. Here is the original thread about it: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1044420

    It's been great for me, football games -- the west coast of CBS, NBC, Fox so when I miss a show being EST I can go here and good to go. No crashes, no lag. Every once in awhile a show doesn't work but 2 seconds later it does.

    If you're worried about stuff, then don't use it - I don't want to hear no whining. Not a ton of channels but I expect more to be added. But it's pretty sweet. And good quality.

    Perhaps you shouldn't be hanging around these forums then. ;)


    FTR, it didn't crash my iPad when I used it last night.

    I have really enjoyed watching the channels on FilmOn and have had no problems at all. I love watching The Simpsons every night at 10:30 on one of the channels.

    Wow this site is awesome! I wish you could edit the channel list because those last two channels are tempting haha. The iPad I use is shared throughout the household and I dont want to share the site.:eek:

    When I watch it, it only stays on for roughly 60 seconds then crashes. Have to touch the the channel again to get it goin.

    I don't share an iPad but I agree with you.

    Those two channels and the fact that it crashed my iPad are the reasons I won't use it again.

    For some reason, I think this is much, much more stable on the iPhone. I've used it more on my phone than on my iPad (though when used it didn't crash), but I was able to watch whole football games on my phone.

    Unfortunately, it is for most.

    Just wait until tomorrow, when iOS 4.2 is (probably) released:

    "Why doesn't my iPad make me toast? Waaaa"

    :p
