peer to peer traffic in a country halves whenever netflix takes off the country restrictions
Thanks for the list now i know where to go and DL. Not a clue before this
I dont think they do that?
Netflix is restricted to the content of the country the user is in. There are, of course, workarounds, but I havent tried them yet and we cant discuss them here
Really? Do you have a source, i'd be interested in reading!
I couldn't be bothered attempting to justify it. I download because I want to and I can and it's easy.
Sandvine did a study on it. Don't remember the exact figures and I doubt they're that high, but Netflix took about two years to hit a x% of total bandwidth and p2p traffic did drop during that time. Correlation =/= causation and all that though.
I wonder, in the history of copyright, has anyone ever been prosecuted for downloading a TV show. I highly doubt it
If I can't watch it on Irish/UK TV when it's on I'll stream it (sports)
If I can't watch it on Irish/UK TV until several weeks after it is shown on US TV I'll download it
I stream all the time, download the odd time, have spotify and netflix, never download music anymore because of spotify. But Netflix is lacking even the US version so what isn't there is free game as far as I'm concerned.
I was thinking of getting netflix but there will still be things not on there so I would have to download something at some point. If you could pay €10 per month for carte blanche unlimited downloading I would go for it.
It just so happens that carte blanche Netflix would cost around 2 euros more than that. 7 for Netflix and 5 to a website that makes your ISP go to America.
I havent tried it yet and of course we cant give out links here but there's plenty of info online, on YouTube especially
Lets hope this never happens over here. At this stage Im using Primewire more than Netflix. Its excellent
This 3d printing stuff is gonna be great, we will all be able to download cars.
I use MP3panda (think it's Russian) I registered roughly 4 or 5 years ago and have downloaded roughly 100gb of music from it BUT I paid $120 about 2 years ago and got unlimited downloads for life as part of an offer they had at the time so while it's free for me, you do have to pay for the music. An album is roughly $1.50-$2.00US which is very reasonable.
