#2259523 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

Posted by frwtv on 21 February 2012 - 12:03 AM

I would have loved to continue providing the service, but you can thank the NHL for ruining the party.


To everybody who is curious about the intent of this sentence:

I am definitely not oblivious to the copyright laws and this isn't the first cease and desist letter I have received - not even the first from the NHL. I knew about the SOPA and PIPA resolutions months before they ever got to be big news and protested across the web. I knew before I started the site that it was both illegal / unauthorized copyright infringement and its days were numbered. I streamed nearly all of last season's games on a daily basis on a private justin.tv stream that I passworded and provided to about 100 fans. I have recorded games and uploaded them to torrent sites.

I was not "blaming" the NHL like I was a victim or upset or anything like that. My intent for the comment was directed at any viewers of the site who might get upset. If they want somebody to be upset at, don't look at me. I don't blame the NHL for protecting their copyrighted works , but I also don't always trust everybody on the internet to think rationally. Just trying to avoid people getting upset at me, that's all.

I hope everybody that used my site is able to find alternative streams for Red Wings games. With a little searching, they're not difficult to find :cool:


#2259233 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

Hello fellow Red Wings fans. Before the 2011-2012 NHL season started, I decided to register the domain freeredwings.tv and operate a site providing live streams of Detroit Red Wings games. Yesterday, I received a cease and desist email from an NHL attorney ordering me to stop any and all unauthorized streaming of NHL copyrighted works. With the recent arrest of a Comstock Park, MI man for copyright infringement, I have made the difficult and unfortunate decision to stop streaming NHL games. I am expecting my first child in August and I cannot get arrested, especially over something like this. I would like to thank the letsgowings community for always linking to the site in the GDT and being grateful and appreciative fans. I hope you enjoyed what I was able to provide. I would have loved to continue providing the service, but you can thank the NHL for ruining the party.

I will be attending the game, so I will be unable to monitor my streams or fix anything if there are issues, but I do plan on starting them remotely before I leave. Hopefully they stay up.

This is the only time I hate Center Ice - because they black it out for the Blues feed even though I'm 3 1/2-4 hours away. Doubly worse when they aren't always broadcasting the Blues game on this side of the state.

Darren Pang is an AWFUL announcer >.> If I had the cables to hook my laptop up to my HD tv I'd just use a stream and watch it there xD If nothing else, at least my daughter will get to watch and get excited for us to win tonight.

LGW!


I will be streaming tonight's game at http://freeredwings.tv. Fox Sports Detroit feed, and both Veetle and Flash streams, each ~800 kbit/s bitrate.

I will be streaming again tonight at http://freeredwings.tv, and hopefully there are less issues. I'm not sure what was going on last night but it was frustrating.
