A recntly-thrown service by name of cCloud TV allows users to stream live TV channels for free across various devices, including desktops – Windows, Mac alike – iPhone, Android and a bunch of other devices, according to a post on Reddit.
The new service apperently to have close ties with the “Netflix for pirates” Popcorn Time, is being dubbed “Popcorn Time for Live TV,” according to the post, which, accidentally, has been published by a Redditor with the name “Popcorntimelive.”
cCloud TV basically live streams a number of television channels, and nothing legal about it, including the likes of HBO, ESPN, Sky News, Showtime, Comedy Central and several others, and allows users to view them across a number of devices, and a list of supported gadgets covers almost every possible technological means that you would have at your disposal. Almost have more than 50 channels of live TV content to stream freely on your iPhone or iPad without requiring any jailbreak process to install apps, because cCloud TV works directly from your Web browser.
When you land at their homepage, you are presented with an option to select your platform, which includes Desktop Flash OTA, VLC, Custom VLC, Smartphone (for iOS and Android), Tablet (higher resolution), Mac Safari, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and a variety of other. Next up, you get to select the available channels, with a list sitting at a staggering fifty, and more being added as you read this. Channels, that aren’t some remotely familiar ones either; as we oft-mentioned, cCloud TV has the likes of HBO, VEVO, CNN, Aljazeera, MTV, Fox Movies, FILM Zone, Discovery; just to name a few.
It’s a holy grail of piracy; Live TV, streaming to any device for free and which is now finally here and no idea on how long this recently-launched service will manage to keep its service running. Available on a wide range of gadgets, includes Roku boxes and even Nintendo’s Wii U as well.
Before you go get installed cCloud TV, you are to admit that this service fall into the category of piracy, plain and simple. They are streaming live TV through unfair means just like paid movies and music is available on torrents for fee of cost, and just because it’s streaming, doesn’t make it legal anymore. How long this service will go live is unknown, and broadcast publishers are keen on cracking down on any such service that can hamper their own revenue streams – Popcorn Time blocked in the UK is a prime example of this. Also, there is the fact that the quality of most of these live-streaming channels is hardly stellar.
To access cCloud TV, you won’t need any hacks, but require an app installation. For that head over to this link on your iPhone, iPad, and choose “smartphone” from the list of devices. List of channels available to free stream appears, tap on one will open the video feed.
