Re: downloading tv shows
i wouldn't recommend them. you're paying to "join" to bittorent illegally and everything you do is easily tracked along with your CC. i had a friend who was proud of using "livewire" until i sent here a few articles and she promptly deleted everything and canceled her "account".
if you wish to download stuff illegally, usenet/newsgroups are alot safter.
i'm not passing judgement on what you guys do... just be aware that redistributing "tv shows" that were broadcast FREE over network TV is technically illegal.
IMHO netflix is a no-brainer though with multiple DVD rentals delivered to your door, legally and hassle-free. Better quality too... glen
