Filmon.tv free service is now over

42
Found 1st May 2017
It looks like those who used Filmon.tv to watch free tv will have to start looking elsewhere to get their tv fix, or upgrade to premium. As of today all free streams have turned to pay only, this includes sd channels.

RIP FilmOn. January 2009 - May 2017.\x0a\x0aAn awesome app/website killed by developer/management (whatever fat cat's at the top) greed. An essential alternative to viewing live TV from a range of channels from UK to France to Germany and all over the world. Also a great way of watching live sports such as the UEFA Champions League, MotoGP and Formula 1 legally on flawless streams. The FilmOn video player was something to behold, far superior to illegal streams and faster than legit streams for channels from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and even BT Sport's Showcase live player. It got murdered last week as the app developer/website mods put on a 2 minute free limit to channels before forcing an exorbitant fee to watch channels even in SD!\x0a\x0aAs AngryJoe would put it - 'You done f***** it up!!!'.\x0a\x0a[img]https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/3b/7c/79/3b7c7986ff275ef77b17428ae3891c69.jpg[/img]

Try ToView working fine at the moment
I found the "Tv player" app offers channels Bbc 1, 2, Itv, channel 4 and 5, which works well for Amazon fire tv/stick.

Got mixed up with the app and website thing, regardless...

The app used to be fully free on SD with most HD channels being paid, it also has a premium section for the paid stuff including movies. Now who's going to be dumb enough to pay for SD? The app/website is dead like many others on the app store and online which used to offer a free service before succumbing to the fat cats.

Then you have no idea how dumb the decision is to charge excessive prices to stream SD let alone HD freeview channels which can be accessed for free anywhere else. FilmOn was a collaboration of free channels from different countries on one space which made it a more viable option than others, but now that option has been removed so it's dead now for others to take it's place. I've no idea how you can't see this, let me guess, you love the BBC? Did you know FilmOn was a legal source which didn't count towards the BBC's viewing figures? A sort of 'revenge' viewing for viewers to check out tat like the new Top Gear without contributing to the viewing figures via the main channel or BBC iPlayer? Do you own a stake in FilmOn to be so overly concerned?
Yeah what a dumb call it is for a business to try and make some money!?!

If you can view them for free elsewhere I am failing to see what the issue is here?

How the hell did the BBC come in to it? X)

If you hated the BBC so much, why would you want to watch their programs or channels?
It still works fine i just checked

I've just checked the implications for me and within less than a second realised that none of this for/against rubbish is of any significance to the quality of my life so I'm moving on. Suggest others consider follow suit.

Oh well, back to the illegal streams :P (from a great site I found a month ago which is in 'beta' stage and bypasses the recent barrage of injunctions from the High Court). And no amount of loony pandering and threats from fanpages will stop me mwahahaha!!!!
