Making it easy for you - Watch TV online, Free AND Legal (Yes, legal!)

If you're not watching Being Erica and you happen to be on the Canadian-side of the 49th Parallel, pop on over and watch the first 3 eps all free and on the up and up thanks to the generous streaming bandwidth of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Yes, that means that the people responsible for making the show are actually getting paid when you watch it for free.

Or at least they're supposed to.

Actually, I'm not sure of all the legalese and such but, hey, if you're aware of how this all works feel free to pop on by and share the info - I'd like to know how it plays out and if writers/directors/actors, etc actually can say 'yeah, I got .034 cents' or whatever when you watch our shows online.

Cheers!
Brandon

The Border

There's an INSANE number of videos here - but they're all free as well.

Both Seasons of The Border - in HD - free for you.

The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Jon Dore Show, South Park and more!

Seriously, a TON of great stuff, free and clear. The only thing is that you have to watch some brief commercials and be aware that some clips will expire after a while (watch them while they're fresh!).

Okay, so that's a good start.

Anyone else have legit places to watch good quality TV online for free? (ie. the people responsible for the programs end up seeing some money when we watch).

Thanks for the links. I'm a fan of the show. I'll be downloading your videos on John Q TV.
