    looking for ways to make money online, i really like a few tv shows, i usually wait til after and watch them on a select few websites

    like gotham today, i searched gotham season episode 3 in google, and the third link or something had a traffic counter, and it showed how many people are on the website and what they searched etc, and it must of had 200 people per minute on the website looking to watch the show, said the coutnry and everything

    it's illegal to make a website dedicated to this right?

    also, how do some websites get away with doing it? i've been watching tv shows on this watchnow.info for quite some time, and the website hasn't went down

    how would these sites even make money? ads during loading the show/

    not sure how some websites upload the show 5 minutes after it aired either though

    not really looking to do this, just curious

    They only problem with such sites is when they remove your website from Google search using DMCA complaint.

    I think many get away from the DMCA complaints as most of them don't host it on their actual website and just have it embedded in their site as it is hosted on sites like Gorillavideo.

    Through a third party like youtube you might be ok, but I wouldn't run a site solely dedicated to providing copyright content (note that I said 'providing', this would include linking as well as hosting). Just do a google search for "tv links uk arrest" it's not a position you want to be in.
