    All I can tell you is that there are legal issues involved, since you are streaming the television's proprietary stuff and earning money from that. And as you said the competition is high. Most surfers have already chosen a provider and stick to that.

    ofc it's still possible earn some bucks in this niche but the golden days are definitely gone, however I would suggest you more long term niches

    They used to earn majority of money from surveys ( ******* for example ) and software downloads ( Zango before ). They don't anymore although I believe you can find company copycats.

    There are few affiliate programs like Graboid that can make you money.

    Appart from search engine sites like Sidereel that earn money from ads (eCPM), they get millions of page views a day I wouldn't get into it. Payments are unstable and it's time consuming.

    Hmm ok what about cpa networks?I have seen many with content blockers even on first page of google?

    They seem to have many adsense and of course a cpa gateways..think they are making tons of money?

    And on the legal issues i think adding streaming video like from justin.tv and ustream.tv you can get away with it? your just embedding html codes from a 3rd party site?

    I was making $1000-$1300 a month with tv sites only on C.. Le.d
    changing to another company I make about $700 a month
    the work is minimal - but I don't use Fbook Utube or Twitter
    which would increase things

    The main problem you have now is beating people who have been doing this for a few years now... so it will take awhile to build your traffic.

    Im actually selling my sites on WF and moving to another niche - as wanting to get into other niches more seriously.

    You might be able to make money selling hulu plus subscriptions if they add an affiliate program.

    You will need to find a good offshore host, that offers unlimited bandwidth, free TV online sites use 300x the bandwidth of a normal site, unless of course they are just linking to other sites, which defeats the purpose of having the site IMHO

    If you intend to create a site you need to promote it a lot, do some SEO and spend time in order to compete with the already established sites. I used to have a few tv series sites in the past but i switched niches, because i like to try and invest on new things. By the way if anyone interested for setting up such a site, PM me for details.
