Filmon = free tv on your PC!

http://www.filmon.com/

I got the Windows 8 app installed and this FREE service is superb!
No Irish channels as yet, but they are adding channels all the time....I emailed them and they said discussions with Irish channels are taking place.

But it has loads on UK channels, terrestrial and satellite/cable types. hundread of others from around the world. It can be installed on W7/Vista too.

I find the sound quality is rather "tinny", although it's not bothersome enough to put me off using it. Though there are heaps of channels the UK ones are really the only ones worth bothering about. Still, interesting to know that they're working on adding more.

Most of the UK channels have now been removed as of yesterday, it seems, as were many other channels...

Oh yeah, they wouldn't want the citizens watching free tv for free, now would they?

Have a read of this thread in the Android forum about XBMC:

http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2056897650

You can setup XBMC on your phone and your pc, not only is it the best media player out there but it can take all these Filmon, Aertv, RTE player, TV3 player, 4od, BBC iPlayer and a million others and handle them flawlessly all in one place, it's the perfect media centre solution and it can automatically get around georestrictions. You can even add emulators for every console up to the PSone to it aswell.
