How does this venture even make any money, if assuming it is a genuine business as opposed to a glorified YouTube scraper?

Or is my ad-blocker hiding things? It says it isn't, apart from Google Analyics tracking.

Actually why are we continuing to feed this?

Is whoever runs it bumping up this thread? Razz


Please, if this was my project I'd at least give it an proper domain name if nothing else. Weebly in your web address is like the sites of 20 years ago where you had URLs like peepholepringle.angelfire.com or geocities.com/smellmycheese and the associated quality of the sites to match. Mostly dire and fit for the skip but the odd occasional interesting entity - some very odd IIRC.

I've just spotted this on an archive Twitter post, somebody actually bothered a few months ago to knock some Radio/TV Times style listing article together:





Pity they lifted the text from Wikipedia and couldn't source any high resolution images to shrink down, forced instead to blow up some low resolution ones and then go and break every layout rule in the book.

Six months on air, my arse. Six months of delusion and automated YouTube scrapers. Weebly even provides the features for the video player, I suppose all you have to do is create playlists of various shows (which other people have already done on YouTube, just copy and paste the URLs) and get the software to mix them up and Bob's your Uncle.

I imagine it's just some kid who has a fantasy of running a TV channel. I don't think it's something to get too worked up about unless there is actual copyright infringement going on. As it is, it seems to be videos from YouTube using a service which somehow starts the video at a certain time as if you were watching a live TV feed.
