Is there anywhere to watch Dexter legally online?

Found 22nd Jul 2011
As title really, I want to watch the new season of Dexter which is running on FXUK on Sky but I don't have Sky any more.

I even have access to Sky Go through my dad's account but it's not available on there.

I don't mind paying for it and trying to resist just finding a streaming option but it's not on itunes/blinkbox.

Can't see you getting arrested even if you downloaded a torrent, as its not even unlawful far less illegal.

That's a fair comment. However I've just removed another link posted in this thread by a member. We don't permit direct links to those sites. Often, as was the case in the link (now removed), you'll get pop ups appearing that are adult related.

I thought all those people got letters fining them or taking them to court if they refused the fine for downloading torrents?

The letters came from a company called ACS Law. Being a private company they can't issue fines, people paid these purely out of ignorance. ACS Law took only one case to court which was immediately thrown out by the judge and have since been liquidated.

Peoples ignorance of this frustrates me greatly, it's not like I had to spend hours researching to find this out. Simply a modicum of common sense. I repeat...downloading/uploading copyrighted material has never been proven to be either unlawful (in which case the copyright holder could sue the uploader) or illegal (criminal).

But the programme makers don't get any money for their work.

Would you be happy for that to happen at your job, if you have one?

Just in May a Scottish woman was convicted for her file sharing activities...

And in the Oink case, 4 uploaders were also convicted...

The first link apparently doesn't exist.

The article on the Oink case is hardly enlightening....it's only 4 small paragraphs. I'd be extremely interested to know how exactly the uploaders were identified...I suspect they had ties to the site founder and played a part in operating the website.

Do the makers get more money for viewers once they sold a show to a network? I know ratings matter in US but over here?

If I like a show I'll re-watch it on UK TV (if it's on terrestrial) or buy it on a DVD/Blu-ray set. I just don't want to wait a long time for it.

I do have a job btw.

Copy then paste the whole line to get it to work.
Or just google scottish woman filesharing

And no, the Oink uploaders had nothing to do with the running of the site.
They were identified because the police seized all of Oinks equipment.

That Scottish woman plead guilty. She never would've been convicted if it had gone to trial. Her lawyer was incompetent.

What is your ratio?
Have you downloaded more than 6GB?
If so read this

If you get banned because of your ratio the worst that will happen to me is I lose my last invite(which I won't be using anyway)

Yeah, downloaded >6gb and ratio right now is 0.3. Wanted to outside seed but almost all torrents are in 14mb rar files which I don't have. Will try to extend it, thanks.
This is why back when I was still torrenting I would burn off a few DVDs full of files to seed for anybody I'd invited. With strict instructions not to download ANYTHING until they had built up a reasonable buffer.
Yeah, would have seeded first if I had known. Got a 6 day extension, TL staff are very helpful! Any good files to 'outside seed'?

Surely common sense would make people think that any form of sharing copyrighted material without permission is illegal. No need for such high and mighty attitude there.

I'm not bothered about it enough to search and quote but I'm sure that ACS Law were able to do what they doing because of the Digital Economy Act that was rushed through the washing-up period before the latest government came into power.
Torrentday keeps its scene uploads in rars, you could grab some from there, it's still open signups until the end of the month.

Maybe you should have spent hours and it would have stopped you being frustrated at yourself.

Have a read of the copyright act and see what it says about distribution. You will find you're wrong.

Fair enough, but that is just one case. I was referring to the big group cases against Sky customers among others that apparently got clocked downloading. From what I read at the time it was the DEA that meant ACS:Law could request the details of the people downloading from the ISPs. Those people's details were then inadvertantly made public IIRC.

Yes but that has nothing to do with the DEA, ACS law got court orders well before the DEA to force the ISP's to hand over this data
