  1. I recently got a smart TV and I’ve been trying to find paranormal related programs (such as Paranormal witness and Ghost Adventures) to watch on the internet feature, but with no luck. Does anyone have any ideas how I can watch programs like these on my smart tv? By the way, I’ve already tried streaming it from the internet feature but it doesn’t work, it would be great if anyone knew an on demand service (preferably free) that does paranormal shows.
    Also, I don’t have Sky or cable or anything like that, just Freeview. I am looking for On-Demand services, not channels.

  2. I would like to stream a live event over the internet to be watched by people all over the world. What’s the best free software / service that I can use? I am capturing audio through sound-card and video through a Pinnacle analogue capture card. I have a web page and would then want to embed a player for this.

  3. A company that provides video streaming content online for a monthly membership fee, how much percent does this company have to withhold state taxes on the subscription revenue? I have seen many contradicting opinions online and am really not sure about the answer/or if there is a defined answer.

    What does Hulu, Netflix, or other online streaming video providers have to withhold regarding state taxes?

    My church wants to be able to have two services at the same time but only on preacher. This means that we would film the preacher in one service and send the feed to the other. How do we do this? Also, is it possible to have a delay or pause of sorts on this feed in case the service getting the feed is not ready when the preacher starts> If so, how?

    Just cable- I do not want to bundle with internet or phone.

    I do not want HBO or any premium, just what USED to be considered “BASIC SERVICE” (as in all the networks like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX + cable channels like E!, MTV, TBS, TNT, etc).

    Before they changed it, some artists offered a few free downloads on their music profile, but now I can’t seem to find this option. Did they take it away?

  9. How does xbox make any money if the competition is free?
    Also, the quality of the netflix is slightly better with my ps3 as with the xbox. So why would the one that is less quality feel the need to charge?
