I have cable TV and can watch "The Walking Dead" live.

However, I can't get the latest episode on Netflix.

So I torrent it a few hours later. No commercials, and in HD.

I have no interest in watching the damn TV. I hate commercials like they were winter tires.

There is only one TV show that anyone cares enough to pay fore in this house. Its available with Digital over the air so none want to pay fore TV.

Only wish some of my shows were available fore steaming still. Survivorman 10 days and others.
most of the time I'm fine with a 120 GB cap next week I can download.

I sense a recurring theme for the next couple weeks.


I'm the same though. I just grab it once it's uploaded. No commercial breaks and no shitty sound cutting out and picture freezing every so often (bad Rogers line to the house the they refuse to do anything about). Now that I have unlimited bandwidth with Teksavvy I don't have to ponder if every single thing I download is gonna put me over my limit.

I sense that Perinineuimn will eventually tire of that winter joke, as it might not have the same traction as his mom jokes. Gotta tread lightly to keep the mods off our backs though with the mom jokes I guess....once the mom jokes start, its a slippery slope to total thread degeneration where we can't stop or help ourselves.

Be careful with downloading stuff though these days....you don't wanna get sued.

If one treads carefully you can winter any storm. No need to tire. It just takes a modicum of skill and some forethought in that regard.

If you see the profile of a thread you can get a good run at it without hitting any topics that would put it over the rim.

Oh dear. I fear that this tread has spun out of control.

Well then let me get it back on topic :P I actually remembered now when I canceled my internet service with Videotron, I asked them if they could offer a unlimited download version of their services. They seem to have the most legit answer as to why they can't.

They said that they believe that if Videotron was to offer unlimited downloads that it would increase piracy and download illegal contents. Compare to others who say to prevent network congestions are stuff, I say it's pretty legit, but still far from being true, the last time I downloaded something that's "illegal" was back in 2009 when I downloaded Unreal Tournament 2004, because I couldn't find it any where to buy it legally.

So you don't download TV shows and/or movies?
