    In no way am I commenting on how your site works. I simply made a comment about the pop under ads on the pirated content.

    The content is pirated and is therefore illegal. The screenshot above shows how it is illegal as it is a rip direct from a dvd

    So the general Consensus is hdtv.net.au is Not a good domain to use as a television shop a tv streaming site is also frowned upon:-(
    so what would you do with the domain?

    The issue with it is that as far as I know it is illegal (will be researching this to confirm)

    https://flippa.com/34319-tv-video-site-earning-1000-month

    Many have sold on Flippa there is quite a bit of info on these type of sites,
    If you hosted the content this would be illegal,However linking is not Illegal and is the reason Sidereel tvduck and a dozen other top alexa ranked tv episode sites still exists

    Seeing as megavideo etc do not have a deal with tv studios etc to license their content, it is illegal and because of that I wouldn't be surprised if someone couldn't report you to AUDA. Just saying

    EDIT: From that flippa link. Essentially what is happening is that since the videos comes from someone else who illegally gets the tv shows, the content is no longer illegal, at least in regards to your site. You know what, that may or may not be true but either way, it is highly unethical in my opinion.

    Consensus amongst admin's is that this has gone on long enough now.

    I think Snoopy made a good point. This forum is frequented by seasoned Internet Marketers. If you try and sugarcoat something, it's more than likely you'll get called on it.

    Bottom line - if you post in Site Review you need to be prepared for honest opinion.

    Locking now.
