    You don't own the content nor do you host it, but can you embed it?

    eg. tv shows, movies etc..

    depends on what country you live in. In the US, it's illegal to link or embed it. In Canada they had a landmark ruling that said it's not illegal as long as it's not for commercial purposes (e.g., no ads around it).

    Not if you ask for the owner's permission.
