I must be late to the Party on this one….Peekvid is site that will almost definitely be shut down before the end of the year.But.. that’s ok because it has a bunch of TV Programs to watch 🙂 Its selection is pretty limited – that said, its not bad for streaming media – and those of my friends who constantly travel. This could be a useful little site should they find a need for some quick entertainment or for people to cheap to get cable.

  3. PEEKVID4EVER says

  4. Satori says

    This is the best already have a new peekvid out there see where all here to help each other and everything is all good hahahahahahhahaaha

  5. mattroberts says

    I have to admit peekvid has lasted longer than i thought it would.Its traffic is probably going through the roof if the traffic on this post is any indication!

  6. Matt, your traffic is probably through the roof on this entry because it’s one of the top links on Google for the search "Peekvid" that doesn’t point to the Peekvid website itself.There are a lot of folks like me who our trying to find out more info about Peekvid’s revitalized service.

  7. mattroberts says

    Hey Lem, Just from my own knowledge. When I first looked at peekvid back in May the service was being run through a number of video services but predominantly Youtube (and to a lesser extent Google Video.) They’ve since moved entirely onto DailyMotion which seems less vigilant in taking down copyrighted material. The reason peekvid manages to keep their shows/movies etc online is that as soon as a show is taken down they automatically re-upload to dailymotion and update the appropriate link on their end. Its rare that you’ll hit a dead link. I’m pretty sure they’ve got a server with a script running that pings the video file and if its taken down it automatically re-uploads. Not really sure about why they bother – as there are no ads on their end. Maybe they have a deal on directing traffic to dailymotion?

  8. flickpeek doesnt work and im pretty sure peekvid has just been shut down

  9. music thief says

    Enjoy peekvid while it lasts, you idiots. When sites like this wipe out the entertainment industry, you will have no new movies to watch, no new music to listen to, no new TV shows, no videogames to play. You will be forced to entertain yourselves.

  10. Da Reaper says

    Peekvid will not be shut down as it is not breaking any laws. They are linking to movies hosted by other sites (like YouTube and DailyMotion). There is no law against linking to material (copyright or not). It is against the law to upload and host the material on your servers for public display (which is not what Peekvid is doing). Get a clue you retards!

  11. Jaycee says

    Did someone say it isn’t *fair* if peekvid gets shut down? Poor little you! No more something for nothing! Next thing you know they’ll outlaw shoplifting.Linking to material the way peekvid does is pretty close to aiding and abetting, or receiving stolen goods, if you ask me. But tell me, my fellow retards, if Hollywood got its act together & offered low quality, 3×4 inch Flash streams like peekvid, how much would you pay to watch a South Park episode or other TV show? A buck? 5 cents? How about a movie?

  12. N.O.Y.B says

    Peekvid is da best………………..end of………fineto………..fin……..over……..done.

  13. missy says

    i love peekvid and my kids love it too i would hate to see it shut down! leave it alone and for all the people out there that think it so illegal THEN DONT GO TO IT IF YOU THINK ITS SO WRONG!

  14. missy says

    OMG i love peekvid and so do my kids i think its great i really hope that it dosent get shut down . AND FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THAT THINK ITS SO ILLEGE THEN DONT GO TO IT but dont ruin it for all the rest of us!! there are going to be a lot of angry people out there if it goes and there will just be another one made anyways in time lol so why bother taking it down!!!

  15. Try reading books – then at least spelling and grammar might improve: next thing you know there’s less violence in the world, Hollywood becomes a good place to settle down and bring up a family, and no more reality tv! Yaaaaaaayyyy!!!Having said that, I don’t mind Ren and Stimpy so much…

  16. danny says

  17. Nigel says

    Peekvid seems to be back but House isn’t its all gone, woe is me, what am I to do??? Please, this may seem pathetic but does anyone have any ideas on where to view House season 2? I don’t want to have to buy the box set!

    Is anyone else having problems watching 24 on Peekvid? It just hangs saying "Loading" when I try to watch an episode.

  27. ok well i tried peekvid 2 weeks ago and it crashed my pc!!!! i asked around for help and they said when you stream videos it opens ports for hackers to get on your pc. I wouldnt watch peekvid anymore, because if it seems too good to be true, it is….

  28. pauly boy says

    peekvid was the best until now, thanks a lot guys youve messed it aaaaaaaaalllllllllll up.

  29. Shucks. Peekvid started by saying that it was undergoing an update or something like they were re-doing it. Now for the past few days it hasn’t been responding which can’t be any good.Technically, Peekvid wasn’t illegal, but oh well. That’s that. Back to Vongo.

  30. Mark V says

    peekvid is still working. It just takes some getting use to. If you get a page that says loading, close it and open it again. It’s been working for me. Great site!

  31. None of these websites has Lost Season 1 working… most of them go to some chinese website and they dont even have it!Does anyone know where i can get the first couple of episodes for Season 1 of Lost?????

  32. DeWayne(FilmFreak) says

  34. Cassieb says

    What about a site where you can pay to download TV series or movies? I don’t mind paying, but I hate having to wait til the DVD box set is released when the shows (eg Grey’s Anatomy) are already showing in the U.S.

  40. Kai Hientaku says

    Hi People, does anyone know where i might be able to watch the rest of Scrubs season 4 to season 6. Iv’e searched it almost every where and either the "content has been removed" comes up or it’s in spannish.And to the owner of Peekvid, I’m sorry to hear that your site is going threw some troubles Regarding illegal issues? And the programme makers don’t lose out in money to who ever said they do. The videos that are posted on this site and sites like this have either Been recorded from tv or have been recorded from someone purchasing the show and loading it on the net ( That meens the acters/drawers have already been paid along with the Channel the programme gets aired on).

    Against peer-to-peer sites, the MPAA campaign had its chance. But downloading movies isn’t that easy to access for non-techies. This time, link farms is as easy as setting a new blog. And when you consider there are more than 70 million blogs counted by Technorati, the MPAA campaign is totally useless. Example, check this out, a blog doing the same job (or better) than Peekvid: http://venividi.blogsome.com. Add to this, the difference in interpretation of hotlinking, it would take a while before the MPAA could find a solution. For them, the alternative would be to ink a partnership with YouTube, Veoh, DailyMotion and other video sharing sites to provide TV shows and movies with ads inside.

  52. peekvid is great i love streaming through videos i cant find 2 dl . especially smallville.! those entertainers make so much money already while theres people starving theyre buying ferraris so what if they lose some money over ppl d/l there stuff. one less ferrari for the rich and famous.
