TV Links is a very comprehensive up to date website that offers links to hundreds of TV shows, movies, cartoons, anime, music videos and sport shows. The main url brings you to the listing of all available TV shows which start with all episodes of 24 and end with Zoey 101.

All popular shows like Lost, Grey's Anatomy, Star Gate, Star Trek, Desperate Housewives, The Sopranos, Criminal Minds, Alias and hundreds more are available with most if not all episodes a mouse click away. One little drawback is that several episodes have subtitles in different languages but the main language is English.

All shows load in a small popup and play immediately at least on my connection. All videos are hosted on the usual video hosting websites such as Youtube, Veoh and Dailymotion. Tv Links is updated frequently with new shows and broken episodes get replaced rather quickly, at least that is the case for the most popular shows.

The cartoons and anime categories hold several hundred TV shows. The same can be said for all the other categories. I think the movie category is the one that has most broken links of all categories.

Must be because they can be detected by searching for files above a certain file size only.

Update: TV Links may not be the same service, but it makes available TV shows online, at least for some users. The service lists upcoming TV shows as well as shows of the past, and links to services on the Internet where you can watch those shows online. These services are usually either country-restricted services such as Hulu, or subscription-restricted services for cable subscribers. While that may not get you far if you happen to live outside of the countries the shows are available in, it may help users from those countries finding the shows they want to watch online.

Update 2: TV Links redirects to TV Muse now. The service itself appears to have not been changed. You can still look up your favorite TV shows on the site, find out when they are on TV, and where you can stream them on the Internet.

The core difference to before however is that the site is only covering legitimate streaming services now. This means that the majority of them are limited to users from specific countries, or subscribers, and no one else.

    Everyone knows that TV-LINKS.CO.UK was one of the greatest site ever created. Just as good as good ol Napster. Now tv-links has finally come back and changed its name to http://www.tv-links.eu. So people that loved or never heard of tv-links now have the second chance to check out what was so great about tv-links. Well enjoy and be happy people! Please spread.

    The tv-links concept seems to have been so successful that others have tried to copy it. We don’t mind competition, we just want you to choose the best.

    I found a new Major VID site where you can watch TV, Movies, Videos & more for free. I have been watching the Simpsons online ever since. Their search platform searches all of the major video sites at once so you can find videos from multiple sources from just 1 place – http://www.LotsOfGreatVideos.com

    Thank’s Martin !
    The tip to let the video load until it is finished and start playback then doesn’t work for me with flash streams.
    When I really need to play the video, I let it play until it is finished, then simply copy it from Temporary internet files to another folder, and play it offline. The video plays perfectly that way. So I think I can say it is not a matter of power of the computer.
    Your answer and the other ones let me suppose that Youtube, Myspace, etc… work well for many people. But I took a look at Google to see that they don’t work for many people too. What amazes me is the huge success of those sites that don’t work for so many people.

    I used to subscribe to a site called ESS which is now long gone as they used to host the content and got shut down as a result, I have been looking into online streaming ever since. tv links is a good site with a vast array of content I must say I have not watched the regular tv as such for many months now and find that ovguide.com (online video guide) is a splendid portal for finding the shows broken or, not on, tv links. I find many shows or films are split into parts so open them all in separate tabs, push pause and by the time part 1 is watched the other parts are ready to roll. I also found that opendns seemed to increase my buffer times. Quasimodo you may want to look at joox or stage6 as the content is all divx and normally very good quality. looking forward to not paying my next tv licence bill :p

    Me: I can only give you the tip to let it load until it is finished and start playback then OR download the video right away using one of the many popular Youtube downloaders.

    cool site, but it’s taking forever connecting :/

  11. Cristian said on June 25, 2007 at 3:08 pm

    Try this site ;)

  12. Me said on June 25, 2007 at 2:50 pm

    About this kind of streaming site…

    I never could play a video from Youtube, Myspace, dailymotion, and tis new one presented by Martin, with an acceptable continuous stream.
    I have 512 Mo of ram, a broadband connection with 1 Mpbs, wich is compliant with the minimum requirements for a good streaming play.
    So what ? It seem’s that those sites are the most frequented on the web now, so I suppose the videos are viewable… Except by me ? Me only ?
    It is a mystery for me…

    the video quality mostly sucks.

    But it is a good way to preview and make up your mind on which movie/show dvd rips to get from p2p/usenet …

    Yea, cool website, haven’t visited for long tho.

    Martin, just a note that you might want to replace the link to point straight to the index site.
