Exactly. I use the same here and I stay away from anything on internet exploder. Noscript is another useful addon. The 9 sites I listed in the thread above ^ are also clean.

I use mainly Linux which is immune to most spyware and viruses and runs faster than windows.

A lot of those sites are illegal and full of pirated content. Be careful which ones you watch.

That's why you use a VPN so your IP address shows up on the opposite end of the U.S. or outside of the states if you're a premium user. A fictitious internet account also helps so you aren't a target. This isn't my first rodeo,lol.

Well, getting caught is not my concern. My concern is your complete disregard for the United States constitution which empowers the protection of copyrighted work. You're essentially using copyrighted work without permission. The founding fathers did not build this nation so people can rip each other off.

That's not being frugal. That's being illegal.

Legal is just plain boring. I've been known to jaywalk too, but don't tell anybody!

Fox has all their TV shows online and you can watch the episodes.

I'm currently hooked on Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow.
For years I watched Burn Notice on Hulu til that series ended.

A lot of stations have put their shows online and have provided legitimate ways to watch them without needing to subscribe to Cable TV or use an Antenna. It's a great alternative.

I refuse to pay to watch TV. I watch OTA using an antenna. Picture is very clear and plenty of channels to watch. The 3 major networks and Fox etc. More than meets my needs.
