Maybe use coupon code CYBER40 to take an additional 40% off this already great deal! = $30 = £23

This is basically a streaming service where you can use their company servers to connect and download up to 250 gigabyes of files (per month) to their servers (very quickly) you can then stream them from there or download them to anything you can connect to them

'There are a number of risks associated with downloading files, from viruses to having your IP address vulnerable, and Streamza eliminates them all. Allowing you to collect large files fast, securely, and without downloading any additional programs, Streamza gives you complete freedom. With this deal of 250GB of downloads per month, you'll always be up on your favorite music, shows, movies, and more.
Build an instantly accessible content library without having to pay monthly subscription fees
Download up to 250GB per month in lightning speed
Get large files fast & securely, w/ your IP address hidden
Access your files from anywhere w/ included Cloud storage - that includes on Roku, iPhone, Android, & more
Search a massive, continually-updated integrated library for any movie, TV, or music content you want
Connect w/ other Streamza users to see what's popular

Note: Customer usage intended for downloading content available according to local copyright laws.'*

This is for a lifetime subscription and updates
It saves you having to set up a VPN etc. It seems to be legal in the US (the selling site is American) so debatably probably legal here.

There is a free 14 day trial here
streamza.com/

This is not the only one, there are a number of these services, some cheaper, some more expensive,
With any lifetime subscription it of course depends on the life of the company and the software.
This deal apparently expires in seven days

Well I'm posting as a service anyway, I thought it would go cold.
It's up to the user what they get.
People don't understand or don't care that some films (for instance) are simply no longer available and never now will be.
Software by MS (for instance) is often no longer available or only available to members of technet.
The wayback machine or old version.com (for example) contains some things but not much.
£37 a month for 250 gb of storage, even it is dressed up in apple BS ware is not a bargain

No, but there is a free trial (above)
I don't think it should be illegal as you are only connecting to their servers not the forbidden ones
The US is (I think) even hotter than we are at forbidding access

It's my understanding that you are warned anyway by your ISP at least a few times first.

My bad, but still not a deal and a very stupid name imho. I suspect this will freeze. I currently have 5 x 1tb of online storage so would happily consider most things, but not this.
And they'll be scanning files looking for matching hashes for copyright material, if they're US based they'll be forced into doing that I'm sure.

Better off just running Plex server at home & connecting to that remotely instead.

?? I have 2TB of online storage (free) courtesy of one of my previous deals but I wouldn't use it for storage, my connection speed is too slow. What's in a name? Who cares? (streamza)

When I look at the site the description makes references to "torrenting" that has been changed to "downloading" on the description here. That's a very specific service which isn't clear when changing that word.

I guess it's an alternative to a vpn if a 250gb limit suits you. I'm not sure about the claim to protect you from viruses and downloading "additional programs" as you presumably still have to source your torrent file and at least most of the risk is going to be there.

Where it says Note: Customer usage intended for downloading content available according to local copyright laws. I'm not sure if that's just a typical disclaimer or if they're likely to revoke your license if you breach it.

No indication of how long files are stored for and what storage limit you have (the 250gb is d/l per month not storage) so it's not necessarily somewhere that you can store things indefinitely.

The link is to an intermediary so thought streamza.com might have more info but at the bottom of the page there's no hyperlinks on terms of use or FAQ.

Hard to assess how good it is as a service but a one off payment for lifetime license versus $5.99 a month sounds good.

Actually I had a look for reviews to see if there's more info and first one I found is reviewster.com/str…ew/ and the first thing I notice is mention of 40,000gb of torrents you can instantly access and an example search which is clearly illegal content. Seems quite brazen and begs the question of longevity (though an article from 2014 talks of PayPal banning them, so been around for a while).

Some user reviews here:
sitejabber.com/rev…com
There's only 8 but the only long review is negative.

I noticed you can add a Roku channel and with all the illegal content they have, and comments on that for review presenting it as an alternative to cable or Netflix type sites it does seem to be more of streaming service than a storage service.

and I would still not consider it.

I made in clear in my review that I had edited their description.
There are other programs which you could potentially use to stream illegal content. Kodi for instance. The Internet binary groups have always been available for illegal contents. Anyhow, the programs themselves are not banned.Some torrenting programs are not safe or secure (this is what they mean, I think)
AFAICT. You can still stream copyright protected films from certain sites.
The storage space is, I think, 250GB for storing the files they download, you can then stream from them or download the files directly. So if you are out somewhere you can watch them anywhere on anything.

I didn't see your review, and looking again at the deal description there's nothing making it clear. It doesn't really matter though, it wasn't clear what the service was so I tried to help clarify for others while I was looking into it.

Yes, I use Usenet and I'm happy for other, more noob friendly, sources to take the heat. Not really relevant though. Torrent clients are safe enough, it's how you use them. The only thing I wasn't sure of was whether an open torrent port can be exploited, but the search appears to be in streamza so you will be protected from malware infected ads.

Sorry, my post was a bit rambling as I just typed more as I found more. The copyright thing does appear to just be a disclaimer as the example searches on the review was all copyrighted material. Dunno how they get away with it, their servers must be in Russia or somewhere that doesn't care.

Where do you see 250gb storage? I looked specifically and couldn't find any reference. It doesn't appear to be personal cloud storage where you can store your backups or personal documents, it's just for torrents and anything they download for you becomes available to all. The 250gb is the limit you download from them monthly, and over a few months you may be responsible for terabytes of torrents being put on their server.

Edit: signed up out of curiosity and there's a tab "my downloads" and you can share those. There was nothing about personal storage but what I added came off my "transfer limit". Still not entirely clear and spent too much time on something I'm not going to use. Good luck if anyone else can work it out

I think this is similar to a service a friend recommended to me called put.io which costs significantly more.
I haven't really checked it out so cannot really comment on it.

It's a lot cheaper than it was so it should be recommended, IMO.
If you can compare it with something else that offers the same service for less, then ok.
There are others of course.
Whether you like it in principle, whether it's unsafe (I don't personally think it should be)
It's available to everybody. You don't have to pretend to be a student to get it.
A cheaper deal is a cheaper deal.
You can try it for free for 14 days if you want to try it.
And all my deals with Cult of Mac have been one off payments, no monthly charges.
And I don't see why it's so difficult to understand it anyway.
Anyone who still thinks it's a cloud storage solution is crazy.

Not really, you can't download and you can only stream a 30 second clip (supposedly 2 minutes but it isn't). A fun packed 2 weeks.

Despite the original misleading description , you're welcome.

Despite the trial being fairly poor (well it's irrelevant as to whether it's a good service, it simply doesn't let you judge whether it's good) I'm going to have to give the thumbs up to this one. I doubt if most of the people voting cold understood what they were voting on but that, and regard for whether it's good value, often doesn't seem to be a factor.

Heat from me.

My 'misleading description' was only misleading (sic) because of hotdeals. I don't think any ordinary poster knows what their terms are as regards what can be posted. They can be very picky. So I decided to replace all references to you know what!
Yes it is impressive as a one person enterprise (from Reditt)
His other project is Wikidot. If the terms there for copyrighted material are similar to the terms at Streamza, then he/they must spend a lot of time removing material!
Well, thank you for trying the trial, it doesn't seem much use as a trial.
BTW just had a wee chuckle about the use of sic which means the quoted text was transcribed exactly as found in the original text. I hope you see the irony given the circumstances
