Not so new, but more of a new discovery to me - is the existance of a site called FreeTube, that claims it "[..] lets you watch TV online for free
without the need for any special software, hardware or subscription service. We are a completely free alternative to cable television that lets you watch tv channels and tv shows online using just your browser. "
Interesting concept carried out quite well seeing as how it sticks to it's promise, I didn't have to download anything special and I was able to use the site using my older 500mhz PII. I did however have to update my Windows Media Player, but that was only a 2 minute download and installation. After installing windows media player, it was quite simple - just a simple click on what they call a "category" [think topics like sports]. The channels are sorted and listed under these categories and you just click on one to watch. It has this google mail type loader that doesn't refresh the page..I think they call it web 20 or something?
I couldn't get windows media player to show the actual video but I took a screenshot (imagine that theirs some video in there lol):
The channel wasn't broken but for some reason it said it was, again I wish I could have got the actual video in the screenshot but it just refused to get the vide in the shot. Anyways, check out FreeTube here
. It's definately the future of Internet video.
