If you're tired of being told that good online TV is not available in our region, then you'll want to check out TVGorge and its growing collection of current TV shows.

Yes, it’s possible to watch Hulu from outside the United States if you know all the tricks on how to hide your computer's location, but even for the techies that is a pain. Now TVGorge, a TV streaming site that’s still in ‘infant stages’ but already has a lot to offer . TVGorge breaks through international barriers by bringing fresh American TV content to viewers outside of the United States and other approved viewing areas. Are you eager to see the season premier of LOST without waiting several months for it to be released?

How does TVGorge bring in such fresh content? According to the TVgorge website, they use searching and indexing techniques to detect and gather content from third-party TV streaming websites around the world. The company says that its proprietary script is capable of detecting the best source for TV shows and automatically compile the information for its database. Each video is said to be manually screened to make sure it is of high quality and functioning properly.

The big question is whether or not this is all legal.  Will TVGorge.com survive the media companies' lawyers who most certainly are getting ready to attack. In its Terms and Conditions, TVGorge claims to fully respect the intellectual property rights of third parties, but somehow I doubt the company effectively has agreements with Hulu, CBS and others regarding the international distribution of its copyrighted video content in place. TVGorge adds that it does not effectively store video files on its own servers and only links to or embeds existing videos from a ‘variety of sources’.

Enjoy watching now - who nows how long you will be able to gorge on free current TV!
