  charmed1 18:27 05 Jan 2004

in march's edition of PCA there was an artical "confessions of a TV downloader" Nora Diniro said ( i quote "It doesnt take that long to download if you know where to look........"

Well where does she look. Filesharers such as Kazaa Lite still take a while to download single programmes.
If anyone else knows where to look i would be gratefull as i too am an american TV fan, but not a fan of waiting!

But it sounds like piracy of some form has something to do with it.

Correct me if I'm wrong?!

If the ISP's are going to start to add on charges for content then it's time for internet access to be free and everyone paying for the content they use.
the internet should be compared to a high street and the content providers the shops.
would you pay to walk on the high street to browse in the shops?

we the consumers should pay a one off set up fee for connection and equipment then no other fees ie call charges or rental.
the isp's can make their money by charging a commision for each item or service purchased by the person who they connected up.

I think you'll find that the information wasn't give in the mag as it break copyright law to download programs in this manner.

The information will not appear here for the same reason.

Work it out... (Nora Diniro = slang for "No Money" isn't it??)
