The last blog post started off as a discussion on why we aren't seeing continued releases of certain shows on DVD, and drifted into talk of piracy, censorship and what the definition of a blog is.

We created this blog as a way to discuss slightly off-topic material that wasn't being covered on the main site. It's also a way for us to get feedback from our users in a public forum. It was not set up to debate whether it's right or wrong to buy pirated material. We don't support piracy, and we're not going to provide the means for others to try to justify why they support it. There was an attempt to end the discussion in the previous thread, and that only intensified it, and brought along the issue of censorship. The thread was censored because it contained pro-piracy posts. This is a blog attached to a respected industry website; there are things that won't be tolerated here, and the piracy discussion that went on in the previous thread is an example of that.

We've enabled moderation of posts for now while things cool off and get back on track.

Streaming TV?

I'm interested in getting either a Slingbox, or Sony's Location Free TV, and I want to hear what you guys think, especially if you have one, or both, of the products.

I have friends in Hong Kong right now, and they're missing shows from over here, especialy some of the sports broadcasts. Tyler has a PSP, so he could take advantage of the Location Free TV thing, and there's Mac player software coming soon. Slingbox doesn't have Mac software yet, though they're going to release a beta version soon (July/Aug).

Have you guys used one of these products? If so, how was it?
