TVU Player gives you FREE Cable TV

Looking for a cheap and easy way to watch TV from your home PC? Can’t afford cable? Well TVU and the TVU Player offers free P2P streaming of many of your favorite cable TV channels.

From FOX to the USA network, from Comedy Central to the Cartoon Network, it has all the “pillars” of cable TV without all the bills.

TVU uses a central server to stream all the TV broadcasts, but also relies on the TVU client program to redistribute it to other PCs.

“But unlike BitTorrent,” PCMag writes, “…there is no real indicator pointing to where TVU’s streams originate, and thus no real way of telling whether TVU is simply offering a tool to distribute multimedia content or actively breaking copyright laws. Several of the channels use TVU’s logo instead of the channel logo, however.”

Technology semantics aside, its FREE CABLE TV and it works like a charm.

TVU currently offers the following TV channels:

Sports

ESPN, ESPN (ASIA), ESPN 2, MLB, Star Sports, CCTV 5, Telecapri (Italy), NBA TV

General

ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, USA Network, Comedy Central, Disney, Animal Planet, CW, Cartoon Network, TV Land, NASA TV, TeleMundo, Phoenix CN, Star TV

News

CNBC, CNN (low), CNN 1, Class News(Italy), Phoenix Info, CBN, Al Jazeera

Movies

Hollywood, CCTV 8

Lifestyle

Fashion

Music

LC2, Channel V, Music+, All Music, OnTop TV

*UPDATE* They are currently rotating TNT and HBO on the Test Channel 10134

Now for some of the channels the stand alone TVU Player won’t have all the channels listed, like FOX for example, so you have to use its sister site, Vidoo.com instead. Vidoo still uses the TVU client but, has it embedded in the page rather than as a stand alone. Also to note, Vidoo doesn’t work in Firefox and must be opened in Internet Explorer for it to run TVU properly.

Here’s what the TVU Player looks like…….

…and here’s a picture of Vidoo. Notice that this where some of the additional channels like FOX are to be found that aren’t listed in the TVU Player.

TVU plans to offer “pay content” in the future as well, like pay-per-view events and premium channels. Considering their drastically reduced broadcast distribution costs, it ought to be pretty cheap compared to the alternative of ones monopolistic local cable TV provider.

To check out and try TVU, start by clicking on the download bar below.

I've been interested in P2P since the early, high-flying days of Napster and KaZaA. I believe that analog copyright laws are ill-suited to the digital age, and that art and culture shouldn't be subject to the whims of international entertainment industry conglomerates. Twitter | Google Plus

Well, I sure wish someone could help me. I have had this TVU for about four months;purchased what I thought was an additional premium package, and I cannot figure out the darn thing. I have recently only gotten california local channels; I live in Vegas; and haven't found none of this stuff you guys show. I have emailed and called this company, and no one responds to jack.
