50 channels of Live TV streams with cCloud

Posted: May 27, 2015 in Home Media

The Popcorn app lets you watch full length films on a number of platforms from anywhere. Unfortunately its illegal. I am not a proponent of illegal anything, but as part of my efforts to inform potential and existing cord cutters of news in this arena, here it is.

There is a new player in this space that specializes in allowing you to watch 50 channels of live TV including HBO, ESPN, AMC and others. It is called cCloud (http://ccloudus.github.io/#) and it is also illegal, but very ingenious.

It operates on a number of platforms (see below) but the number of channels on the Roku device was linmited to 10. cCloud says this is because Roku places a limit on the number of channels that can be hosted for each account. cCloud is looking for people to host the other 40 channels.

Getting back to the concept. I tried a few of the channels and found that the streams were generally good; unlike Pear where finding really good content is hit and miss at times. Some of the channels you can stream from cCloud include:

  • FX
  • CNN
  • MTV
  • ESPN
  • CNN
  • HBO

Too bad someone can’t convince the content owners like ABC, CBS, etc. to use a technology like this legally to offer cord cutters options they are demanding.
