Obviously, these people have never heard of iShowU.


  1. Streaming movies is an interesting concept but unless you can get it to my HD 60″ TV in my living room forget it, and did I forget to mention this but It better not suck up all of my internet bandwidth or stutter while I am watching it.

    The movie studios don’t get this – I do not want to watch Movies on my computer monitors. Apple TV 2.0 is a huge step in the right direction but it certainly is not a home run solution. There are n o clear winners yet in this space!

  2. if you have the coin for a 60″ HDTV, then drop some for a media computer, (ie Mac Mini) then run the video cable to an input on your tv and then you can use the computer on your tv like I can with mine.

  3. Hey Bonano – Welcome to a global economy that is being buggered by government.

    The Digital Millennium Act trumps your furious annoyance and all of the petty policies in the marketplace.

    Here’s to hoping you live in one of the more advanced countries rather than in one of those emerging economies whose governments are hanging on by a thread, ’cause you aren’t going to see Disney online any time soon.

  4. Not yet available outside US…

    Btw directly when you start talking about Disney I start thinking of the classic Disney movies and shorts from the 1950’s up to 1970’s. I guess those old but much better movies* wont be available online

    *Aristocats, Robin Hood, Djunglebook etc

  5. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it
    much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Great work!
