This is a free streaming service with a number of quality TV shows available. It's a bit tricky to use but is better than many similar sites. I gave up trying to stream shows at Cokeandpopcorn as there were too many ifs and buts. But the site gives clear directions for downloading the shows using a related site. It is time-consuming the first couple of times, but works. UPDATE: June, 2015. Theoretically at least now in Canada it is illegal to keep downloaded material that is copyrighted. I am not be keeping copies on my computer any more. Temporary copies that are deleted after one viewing are legal.

Warning, like most of these sites there are popups that want you to upgrade your java etc. - usually these are NOT to be followed as you could end up with crap on your computer. I use a sandboxed browser (using Sandboxie) and make sure nothing ends up on my computer except the TV show. If you are not very savvy about malware, I suggest strongly you do not try to use this site. That said, for those with knowledge and anti-malware protection, the download option works very well.

I use sandboxie so have low concerns about downloading malware from sites in general. I have found with care, I can download good TV shows at some free sites. I went to Couchtuner.eu has as it lists a show I like that isn't widely available. The first visit I got to watch one episode by following suggestions on the site to clear cache etc. The second time I tried no links would work, ads opened repeatedly and and the message "Update to Java 13.6" appeared everywhere. I googled this message and it is a well known virus/malware that will download lots of crap to your computer. Couchtuner.eu comes up with other similar very suspicious links I would never follow. A very savvy user might find for one show they like, it works ok, but my experience was so bad I won't try anymore. I suggest the average user without very strong malware protection should just STAY AWAY.
