Submission + - Really watching NNTP movies (

emailandthings writes: Long are the days when I had to wait for the entire NNTP download (brought to you by a special group of uploader freaks) before downloading a movie until I found this bintube player brought to you by the folks. Although there are no channels per say, we all know where we can get the "channel" list, right?. The process usually goes like this, find the NZB from your favorite newsgroup indexer, load it up with bintube player, and start watching the movie — It's that simple. Somehow though you may not get the same nice warm feeling as when you pay for it.. Has the movie industry consider NNTP as ways to distribute movies legally? (sigh, it boils down to bandwidth, we know..) go figure...

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
