My computer has increasingly become my all-in-one media box for music, movies, interactive content and more recently live satellite television. I have enjoyed Jumptv and my new favourite Streamick , although the legality of these web sites seem dubious the easy access to streamed online satellite channels is great, until I get my own Slingbox these web sites will have to do.
Streamick states that their service will always be free and that the service is legal. Here is their explanation:
Streamick.com will remain forever a totally FREE service. All this is perfectly legal. The TV channels which can be found on the website are free video streaming available to anyone on the internet. There are no paid channels, which we can’t show due to copyright issues. Streamick.com doesn’t broadcast or reply any video content (at the moment), all the video streams comes directly from the original broadcasters servers.
You have maybe noticed few “big names” in the channels list. Those TV stations are legal and legit. Most of them (such as ESPN or HBO movie channels for instance) are broadband mirrors of Asian (Chinese or Taiwanese) content providers which have obtained the rights to transmit those TV on the internet. For further information please refer to the original broadcasters websites.
Streamick has an educational section where I have been able to access the Annenberg channel. This has been great tool in helping me to access literacy professional development resources for some peers.
I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get any of these satellite channels at home, so if anyone out there is getting these channels, can you tell me if the streams are delayed or is it really a live stream Ã¢â‚¬â€œ just curious?Share and Enjoy -
