Update: This list is terribly dated, so check out our new list
The interweb is still in an uproar over the seizure and shut down of Ninja Video’s domain last week (click for details) and the laws of supply and demand dictate that a new website must be found to fill the void and satiate our gen-Y need for constant streaming media. Now while I’m an avid supporter of Justin.tv, it’s actually not really like Ninja Video at all, in that the user doesn’t control EXACTLY what they’re watching and when they’re watching it, however it’s great for streaming genres and select TV shows. Requests have come in for more NinjaVideo-like alternatives, and here at the Lion’s Den U we aim to please…and infuriate. You’ve asked for it, and now you’ve got it: 5 Sites Like Ninja Video.
TV Re1ease a relative newcomer to the world of streaming media, but its sleek design and up to date interface have already made it one of the better sites out there. Each link gives you access to multiple streams, often both a DivX and flash option.
Ice Films has multiple video types, including DivX and flash, and gives you a download option in case you’d like to watch off-line later.
One of my personal favourites, hence the number 2 spot, because it is by far the MOST organized of all the 3rd party hosting websites. Sidereel collates shows and schedules with a VERY user friendly interface, and offers multiple links to your favourite shows as well as original articles and polls about characters, plots, and current events in entertainment. The scheduling feature also lets you know if your show is new that week or not, which will save you hunting for a new episode that doesn’t exist. Also there are no additional downloads necessary!
Surf the Channel… is dead.
I’ll end off with the website that got it all started for me back in the day, and that’s Online Video Guide. These guys are 4th party hosts as the link to the sites that link to the videos, which puts them a few steps away from the content, but it sometimes saving you from searching one site at a time if you’re looking something fast.
