Damn this sucks. I loved your streams. Now how am I supposed to watch wings games during a boring chemistry lecture?

I was good while it lasted. Thanks for running it as long as you did. Maybe someone should start up a freepenguins.tv site and only show Wings games...it would probably go unnoticed, and maybe even receive funding from the NHL.

I would love to see the results of this experiment!

For now. I hope his site survives.

Is it because of all this SOPA and PIPA and FIFA business?

No, it has technically been illegal to stream games online for a whwile. Big business whines to the government enough, and now these bills have been introduced to increase surveillance of everything online, not just websites like frw.tv. They needed an excuse to watch our every move online, and with broadcast companies or whoever bitching about copyright infringement, they have found their excuse.

As a 25 year old who never went to college and kicked ass as a 10th grader in AP chemistry, I am really jealous, I should probably go back to school and relearn that s***, i know I'd find it anything but boring.

I'm sorry to hear about this. I've been very thankful of your site ever since I started experiencing problems with drumnj's stream. There's no way for me to be able to afford the channels needed for watching NHL here.

Thank you for everything. It was great while it lasted.

I will exaclty echo this. I started lagging out terribly while watching drumnj's streams. Never had a problem before a few months ago, so i've been using your stream the last while. Could never afford to pay for cable, especially because I would only use it just to watch the occasional hockey game Thanks, was great while it lasted, have fun with the little poop machine Posted Image

Been trying to figure it out. Had some repair work done on the line today....looking at other options.

that is really too bad. it was a good alternative stream to watch red wings games. even though im committed to drum, every now and then i would pop in your channel just to say hey to everyone. you will be sadly missed. you should definately get some kind of award here on LGW. dont know what one but definately well deserved. good luck to you and your first child. im sure you are very excited. :)

Thanks for the games. It's nice to be able to catch a Wings game every now and then while being out-of-state and not having FSD anymore.

I think we've been spoiled by the early days of the Internet. Everything has been free (like these streams) and while I want to complain that they shut all these streaming shuts down...I guess I can see why they do.

Of course, I don't have cable and Game Center won't help me since I live in Michigan, so I don't know where to find a stream to watch the game tonight. I wish you could just order certain channels ala carte. I'd pay 10 bucks a month for just FSD. I pay 8 for Netflix and find it comparable.

That's a bummer, thanks for your work in streaming the games.

I'm usually home for most games...but your stream was by far the best I've encountered.
