    Is it Illegal to download Free to Air TV Shows?
    Hi

    I've missed some TV shows while i've been on holiday and was wondering about the legality of downloading Free to Air TV Shows.

    Is it legal to do so?

    Thanks
    From Justin
    I find the best way to locate rogue DHCP servers is to send 240V down the appropriate port. Follow the smoke.

    I don't believe so. There's a number of websites that specialize in this, I believe they license them for just this purpose.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    If it is copyrighted and you do not have the rights to distribute the material then yes it is. That's what gets you in trouble. You don't get in trouble for downloading it you get in trouble for having it available for others to download.
