    I have a question about watching tv online. My wife and I follow a couple of shows on tv and sometimes we are out and miss them or forget to record them, so we will watch the show online the next day. I was wondering if one of you guys could logon to NBC network TV Network for Primetime, Daytime and Late Night Television Shows - NBC Official Site and see if your able to watch any of the available tv shows. Sometimes these sites don't work overseas, and I was wondering if the main 3 networks worked. I'd really appreciate someone checking this out and letting us know your results.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Hi tfa

    I tried the NBC site from here in Perth Australia and get an error message "not available from your destination" for the full length episodes. I can watch the short clips only.

    cheers

    Thanks guys.

    As I thought, the networks only allow domestic isp to show these tv shows and movies. Once your in asia, or down under most and sometimes all the site is blocked. I was hoping we'd be able to watch a couple of our favorite shows online, but it doesn't look promising. Again, thank you 2 very much.

    Sincerely,

    Tom

    Just download what you want from a torrent site, its less inconvenient than 'real' TV

    Hi up2u,

    Excellent idea. See, thats' why I like this site, it helps retards like me. Serioiusly, I hadn't thought of that at all, and I looked at some of the torrent sites, and it seems as though it is better to d/l the shows and bypass the commercials.

    Thanks,
    Tom
