PIRATES

This one is a website from which you can buy movies in several formats including ipod and DVD (illegal of course! - but looks professional - must be Russian!)
http://www.zml.com/
…and this one for streaming and recording 17 UK TV channelsfor 25 pounds (49 dollars) per month . It has a number of samples which can be watched for free.
http://www.liveuktv.com/ Definitely illegal - but looks professional.

TORRENT SITES

http://www.mininova.org/
"The ultimate bit torrent source"
Some of the torrents found lead to
http://www.thebox.bz/ which specialises in torrents of UK TV programmes.You need to have an account. Free, but limited users at any one time

SLINGBOX - an alternative

The Slingbox takes the picture (signal) from your (or your family's) freeview box, cable box, satellite, DVR, or DVD and rebroadcasts (aka “streams”) it to wherever you are using the Internet. You “dial-in” to your broadcast over the Internet from a computer or cell phone which has the Slingbox software (called the SlingPlayer) installed. You can change channels remotely.
