    Default Pretty please; no spoilers

    After such a long wait, and avoiding spoilers as much as possible, I'd hate to logon this time next week to find out everything from 411 before I watch it on the 20th; I doubt I'm the only one! So pretty, pretty please to all our US friends, think of your poor delayed cousins across the pond

    Could probably watch it on Scifi.com later that night. Granted, it's not as high quality, but you wouldn't feel left out then.

    Nah, Sci Fi are a bunch of jerks who limit their online content to US-only.

    Not that they're the only ones guilty of it (I'm looking at you, BBC), but still.

    It'll be up on hulu the next day but IIRC hulu is not available outside the United States. Oh well.

    g.o.d. Stick it.

    It's a big problem that your country is so isolationist that you refuse to accept that other countries even exist. The internet is for everyone and you have 2 major coporate groups trying to make it an American only place. So sory but it is actually a big problem.

    I think you missed his point entirely. I took it that he was saying there are ways around it. Perhaps I'm wrong though.

    Secondly, I'm pretty sure that its a license agreement issue. They likely don't own the right to show the material outside of the USA.

    I think you kind of missed his point bud, I certainly didn't take it that way. I'm pretty sure he meant it's not difficult to set up a proxy workaround for roadblocks erected by Sci Fi and the Beeb.

    Chill out a little; cordial disagreement is one thing, telling another user to "stick it" is another entirely.

    Just a little pet peeve but saying "use a proxy" is about as useful as a doctor simply saying "use some medicine".

    Good luck finding a fast, public proxy that'll allow streaming content.

    exactly, that was my point. I saw BSG webisodes on Scifi chanell website, on Amazon and some shows on Hulu. It's very easy

    For entirely rational reasons, I will not be downloading this.

    In general though, just ***spoiler*** your spoilers so everybody is happy

    Note to all UK folk; the much talked about P2P monitoring>warning>prosecution is now in full effect with larger ISPs. I kid thee not, in all 100% seriousness, this is now happening. I further kid thee not when I say lists have been compiled with IP addresses, postal addresses, and what was downloaded. I can't say anymore sorry, other than to say one of my best mates works for a very well known ISP and has literally had their list in his hand. 100% no BS.

    In fact, I might post this up elsewhere...

    You uh don't have to download it to watch it. Like I said, it'll probably be available for streaming, which isn't illegal in the slightest.

    Well that's not my reason for wanting to watch it on TV

    Btw, stuff like TVU and SopCast is probably gonna be confirmed as illegal, as you're sharing content when you watch. Hulu etc is fine to watch here; for now!

    No... you're just streaming a resource someone else is providing. The person who is providing it is the one who's doing something illegal.

    Currently that's the case, but it is going to change eventually I'm afraid. Not for a while though so don't worry just yet.

    There's no reason why it should change... Hulu is a completely legal site that pays for it's content to be shared and gets money from ads on the website.

    Well write to your MP and tell him/her exactly why the proposed P2P legislation is flawed. I'm serious - a well-worded letter which explains your POV and the technical/legal implications will definitely help as I bet most MPs haven't a clue about P2P... I doubt they've got the tech knowledge, or the desire, to differentiate between legal Hulu-esque sites, or other streamed media. It's Football which is the prime target but stuff like Hulu will probably get caught in the crossfire.
