The concept is the same as the following thread except this one will focus on legal streaming sites for all non-Anime TV Shows.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-535224/legal-anime-streaming-and-download-sites/

So list all of the ones you know of.

Current List (Last Updated 2010/07/04)


- Netflix - This is a pay service only so you are not going to find anything for free here but I think it's well worth the price. They have a huge selection of videos to instantly stream (TV Shows and Movies) and an even bigger selection of DVDs that you can "borrow". Most of the videos are available in 480P but they do offer HD (720P) videos for the more recent shows.

Current Pricing per month, as of July 2010 (Image): http://tinyurl.com/2a7hapl

- Hulu - Big variety of shows but they usually only have the most recent episodes and not the entire series. They stream movies as well and are starting a subscription service for paying to watch all of the episodes for shows instead of just the trailing 4 episodes.

- South Park Studios - Just a site to easily watch all South Park episodes, including the latest episodes.

- MTV - Hard to find a concrete list of the shows they have available online. The only thing I found that suited my taste was Beavis and Butt-head.

- The CW - Need to install an application in order to watch the videos and they only have their currently airing shows. They also only show the latest episodes and not the entire series.

- NBC - Some old shows with all of the episodes available online and some currently airing shows that only have the latest episodes available.

- Comedy Central - Mainly have clips but there are some full episodes.

- Adult Swim - Tons of clips for shows but they also have the most recent episodes for the shows.

- CBS - Kind of hard to find a list of shows that have actual episodes since some of their Full Episodes are marked as Clips. They do have full episodes but it seems they only have the very latest episode available for the shows.

- ABC - Have to install a plugin in order to watch videos and they only have the very latest episode for each series.

- FOX - Have to install an application in order to watch videos and only have the last few episodes available to watch.

- Crackle - Many of the shows they have available are "minisodes" which are full episodes that were condensed to be about 5 minutes in length but hey do have full episodes for some shows though. But you can also filter them to only list minisodes or full-episodes. The site also has movies available though some of them are just clips/trailers for the movie.

If you think it's not legal, then it most likely isn't legal.

Adding Crackle.com though a lot of the stuff they have are "minisodes" which are full episodes condensed into 5 minutes.

I hate trying to find shows online, 'cause I live in Canada, and Hulu and a bunch of other sites only allow people residing in the US to watch their videos. If anyone knows of legal streaming sites that work in Canada, quote or pm me!! :)


Other than the ones BasouKazuma already posted, I know of:

CTV website:
http://shows.ctv.ca/video.aspx
It has a pretty good selection and if you live in Canada, you don't need to worry about restrictions.

Drama Fever:
http://www.dramafever.com/home/
Legal site for dramas :)

Some SNL episodes:
http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/episodes/#apl=true
This one doesn't work for me, for the aforementioned reasons. So anyone living outside of the US shouldn't bother!! I figured I'd post it 'cause a lot of you who do live in the US might find it useful.

I am 99.9% sure they are legal. I don't think I've seen illegal links there...but I could be wrong. But as I said, I am extremely sure they are legal.
