  • Anyone know anything about this?

  • I saw this a while back while I was looking to cut the cord, and it's viable, but you need a device on your TV IIRC.

    I opt'd for a Channel Master DVR rather than this, though you can use this separately on a laptop etc.



  • No, but if they have an MST3K channel, I'm in.



  • Is it free with Ads? I don't see anything about pricing.

    Netflix should have created channels like this years ago using content they already have paid to use. There is no reason there shouldn't be comedy tv, comedy movie channel, and etc that runs 24/7. They have enough content to create channels to do this.

    It's in the channel Line up:

    Looks like some nice content.. but not enough that would swing me over.

    I didn't see any pricing either.. I see / hear enough ads. don't want any more.

    My guess is that they are putting free or very cheap content together into these 24 hour channels. I noticed quite a bit of older stuff on there.

    I'll be testing this from a windows machine inside a browser, so ads will get the opportunity to eat several dicks as they are being blocked. I'll try to remember to post my findings later, as I am about to head home for the day.

    It runs as an app in Windows... and it's crappy. I tried to watch MST3K for about a half hour, and the audio was slightly out of sync, the streaming quality was terrible, and when it "went to commercial", it just showed a black screen w/ some text at the bottom - something like "we'll return you to your program after these sponsor announcements". Then the stream got stuck, all the controls froze, so I killed it tin task manager and watched some Netflix instead. 2/10, would not recommend.

    So not even worth free, huh?

    Not really. If the app was more stable and/or usable, then maybe as a supplement to other streaming services. I did like the fact that there is no signup, just download and go.

    I may give it a go if there's a Roku app for it.


  • Banned

    isn't this what people use Crackle for?

    I find that a lot of these free channels tend to settle on different types of videos.

    There is. I may try it on my Amazon fire stick, because it will hopefully be easier to scroll the channel menu with a remote. That was kinda clunky on PC.
