    I have not been on the LyngSat website for a while until today.

    They have a bunch of channels with FreeDBS style names that can be

    streamed for free. Did anyone else check these out???

    A few channels that are available ITC on satellite are available streaming too.

    Why is it on a free satellite tv channel list has me scratching my head

    and why I posted it here has others scratching theirs!!! :D

    I think Dishman Dan means that the "TubTub" channels have similar names to the FreeDBS channels.

    Lyngsat-stream has links to channels that are streamed online.

    Thanks! That is what I thought I said. :eek:

    Some of the channels are available fta on satellite (a.k.a. on "the list" or LyngSat) but

    now are also available streamed. Did anyone else check this out???

    (Scratching my head because that LyngSat page is normally for FTA satellite channels! ;))

    Perhaps the future of FTA receivers are those that have support for playing back video from selected sites that offer free tv channel streaming off the internet.

    As far as I know FreeDBS is dead and most of the origional people behind the project are no longer involved with it.

    Scott,

    Has something changed since Jeff S. posted this in the Manhattan review thread last week?:

    The TubTub channels have been streaming for awhile. I have watched them online for at least a year. Pretty jerky on my HTPC setup so I do not watch it much, but have seen some really funny older movies on their. As I recall they started with 2-4 channels and I think the count now is probably near 100. Not sure why they would put these on satellite since it has been streaming from concept but that would likely improve the video quality.

    edit: just checked and tubtub.com is showing 120 channels.
