Wish I could help - all I can do is stream from my PC.

Interested in seeing a solution to this.

The only solution I can think of is through tversity. They have a set up for hulu et all. Only problem is that you would have be in America or have a good proxy that hulu doesn't pick up on.

Are you using the latest PS3 update ? Think they fixed this problem with flash players on sites in the last update.

Surely blinx has to be of suspect legal status. It just offers too much for free. Seems too good to be true.

I use surf the channel to watch a load of stuff on the PS3 without a problem. Just use the Megavideo links, they work perfectly.

Its doesn't actually host anything. IT just a aggregator for other sites offering free tv shows. Most of them use Megavideo which is limitd to 70 odd minutes of tv viewing before you get timed out. The time out last for about an hour and you can watch again.

Project free tv is a good one, thought it doesn't stream very well on the PS3....
