Hello All!
As of late I’ve had a lot of people asking me for site’s/advice on where I go to stream tv shows etc.. so I figured I’d write up a little blog about what I do etc and save myself (and my fingers) from answering the same question over and over 😉 Heck, I probally should have done this ages ago..
There are several choices if you live in North America, and a bit fewer if you don’t, but choices none the less 🙂
Just a disclaimer: I suggest making sure your pop up blocker and Virus protection are on when watching/browsing online video. While my methods rarely get me a virus, it can happen, especially to those that don’t recognize the signs.. (Loads of Ad’s, having to do a survey or quiz etc are hints, if you come across this its better to give up on that link and move on

For TV Shows Canadian’s have the option of going to the CTV, Global and the Comedy Network website’s, which are all hosting shows like Lost, Big Bang Theory, 24, House, Survivor, Gossip Girl, Mad Men, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, South Park etc..pretty much anything and everything they air on TV.. and are up within a day or less of it airing. Most recent will be on the Featured page but browse the Library for more 🙂
Global – http://www.globaltv.com/
Comedy Network – http://watch.thecomedynetwork.ca/
Just a reminder, Only Canadian’s can view the above site’s.. Just as we can’t view Hulu, NBC or even BBC IPlayer.. You can’t view ours either..  the US/UK Networks host their shows online as well but due to region lock out I don’t bother with them, but anyone in the States/UK can do a quick Google search and find them easily…
Now for your less proper, region free and illegal-ish (its a gray area) way of doing things..
Gateway site’s like Surfthechannel provide links to video streams on other hosts like Megavideo, Wisevid etc. Sometimes it will take a bit of trial and error to find a link that your happy with but most of the time the good ones are those hosted by Megavideo (which unfortunately has a 1 hour viewing cap and an hour wait time, which can be annoying but is guaranteed virus free and loads quickly) Wisevid, Zhare, Loomdo, Videoweed, fastpasstv.com and Sometimes DivX are good as well but usually do need a 5-10 minute loading head start.. (Divx can be slower loading cause its usually HQ) There are a few Chinese hosts like Tuduo and Youku that do alright (especially if its 2am) but are very slow loading most of the time..
Sidereelhttp://www.sidereel.com/ My personal favorite at the moment, mostly due that it has a general viewing calender of shows on for the week and if you make an account, you get your own customizable timetable of the shows you like.. Here’s mine – http://www.sidereel.com/_user/Zenobie if your interested (Be kind)
SurftheChannelhttp://www.surfthechannel.com/ Kinda Ad spammy but nothing serious, has served me well many times over in the past.. Tends to focus on Megavideo links..
Project Free TVhttp://www.free-tv-video-online.info/
Been around a long time, doesn’t always have links to full seasons etc.. Still worth a try..
Watch Movies http://www.movies-links.tv/ ~ Movies Only
Great site, It’s the one I use most of the time for Movies, has a good interface where user’s vote on the quality of the links so other user’s know which are good.. very user friendly.
Movie2khttp://www.movie2k.com ~ Movies Only
Good alternative to Watch Movies, I use it when I’m not happy with what I’m finding elsewhere..
Let Me Watch Thishttp://www.letmewatchthis.com/?sort=featured
Used it a few times and haven’t been disappointed..
Well I hope that was helpful and easy to understand 😛 If you have any questions or comments please feel free to comment below.. (I Like comments, they make me giddy :P)
If there’s a show your having trouble finding on your own let me know and I might be able to help you out 🙂
Happy Watching! xx
