I had a look at Filmon, my interest being that I am the owner of the banner on the left DavetheBus asked about.
The site gets a red 'reputation warning' from the Firefox WOT (Web of Trust) plug in, but, despite that, I felt obliged to check further. The download was virus free and installed OK.
The service is free (for some channels) and does work. The one limitation is that you can only watch streaming TV, i.e. you are tied to schedules. That means you don't get access to iplayer or ITV web site and all their archived programmes, which is what Internet TV on demand should be about.
Low speed is definitely not Hi Definition, and about the same quality you could expect from YouTube. On regular speed the picture is better but even with the fastest TTNet account it freezes sometimes.
However, for a free service, who can complain.
My only concern is in the Terms and Conditions, where Filmon say:
We do pass on your personal data to third parties and by accepting these terms and conditions you are providing your consent to such transfer.
Basically, your email address can be sold on, so assume it will be used. I'd recommend using a disposable email address to register if you don't want to be receiving spam.
..at the end of the day as far as i am aware Neil ..you cannot legally transmit ..bbc ..and itv channels .from turkey.i was with a company last year .uktelly i think it was called ..and it went bust..i was lucky enough to have paid in monthly installments ..so i never lost too much money..but a lot of people paid for a year up front and lost the lot ..so now i am a bit wary of paying for uk channels now .....so i think i made the right choice..if i lose the channels i lose them ..but at the end of the day they cost me nothing...with the exception of dreambox..which is also illegal
