An equally concerned member of the Ninja Video community alerted and directed me to a new streaming site that offers full television shows and films in high quality.
It’s called Rea1ease, and its interface is very similar to the original Ninja Video, but doesn’t require the beta applet. I was unable to recognize any of the administrators but it’s conceivable by the design, interface and aesthetic that some of the old team is working on this.
Sure to cover any legal implications in the wake of Obama’s recent crackdown on online piracy, the disclaimer reads:
Re1ease.net only provides links to other sites on the Internet (DivX host sites, Zshare, megavideo.com, veoh.com and others.) We do not host or upload any video, films, or media files.
Therefore, re1ease.net is not responsible for the accuracy, compliance, copyright, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of other linked sites.
If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners / host sites as we are unable to forward messages on your behalf.
That sounds good to me, and by writing about this and putting a link to the site exempts me in the same spirit. Happy streaming everybody!
