Watching Fox News Online
FNC Underground ^ | 12/12/09 | Joe Seales

Posted on 12/12/2009 8:58:15 PM PST by JoeSeales

I wasn't sure under which topic this thread should go..

In a previous post here on FR, I gave a link to a page on my personal website/blog where I had embedded some live streaming of Fox News. I decided to do it after Blinkotv did away with FNC.

So many people relied on that service to watch FNC..Lately a lot of folks have been forced to cut their cable or satellite subscriptions due to the current financial mess we're in.

To make a very long story short, I had an experience with some not-so-friendly folks who decided to check out my website domain in the whois registry and post my personal information online..since then I've been getting all kinds of spam..e-mail and phone calls. When I first bought the site, I never anticipated that I would need a private domain registration- so I left it public. Big mistake!

So- I'm posting this to let everyone know who had the old site bookmarked that the domain name has changed (private now) and the streams are now being hosted at:

http://www.foxnewsunderground.com

There are three Fox News Live Streams and one for Fox Business Channel. There's also the ability to chat with other folks while you're watching..kinda like the old TikiLive site.

That's all. Just wanted you to know so you could update your bookmarks if you had the old link saved.

Thanks, Joe

Thanks for doing this Joe I think it’s cool.

Let me guess, was it lefties who gave you trouble? (I don’t call them liberals anymore, they don’t liberate anything.)

Thanks. I cancelled TV not for financial reasons, Thank God. I did it because I refuse to put money in the lib news media’s pocket. The cable and sat TV companies divide say your $50 monthly bill and every nnetwrok or channel gets a piece. Probably an avg of $1 a month. You may wavoid CNN or MSNBC etc etc but you are still giving them your money.

I quit. Millions more should because they will lead us to islamic serfdom.

Thank you. I DID download the RealPlayer but it said it wasn’t ‘communicating’ so will try in the morning. Appreciate your providing this service.

Thanks! I had a link from another site, but at some point that quit working and I had been unable to find another until now.

Recently, our cable company increased our rate for television by a few dollars. I was already loath to pay what I was paying for what we were receiving from an "entertainment" standpoint. So I bought a used computer with S-Video out (About $100 on e-bay including shipping) to hook up to our tv and we dropped the approximately $60 dollar a month cable tv service(still have cable phone and internet). We also joined NetFlix. I haven't heard much in the way of complaints from the family since. I should note that we do get some over-the-air channels.

Thanks for the new link, but I have a problem, and I had this with another streaming link, no volume, even with amplified speakers.
I have to use earphones.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks Joe. As I live overseas, Taiwan, I've been using the 'other' sources to watch Fox and, as you know, they have dried-up.
Of course this means I will have to put REAL back on my 'puter. But, such is life.

I’m having the same problem with Firefox, but only after the browser has been open for 4-5 hours. If I restart it audio and video are fine....for another 4-5 hours ;)

“I’m having the same problem with Firefox,”

Well, I am now on IE.
I have been using Firefox, which I really like, but may have to give it up. My computer stays online 24/7 but
my Firefox slows to a crawl and becomes useless.
Seems that with every new Firefox upgrade, it gets worse.
I rebooted this morning with only IE7 to see how it goes.
I wish someone could tell me how to fix Firefox, as it is so much nicer then IE.

I’m trying to think if I have ever had a computer problem that was NOT related to RealPlayer...
...nope...
...and anything worth the trouble of another RealPlayer experience...
Sorry, no. Not Fox; not even to hear the songs on jolson.org.

Joe, where is your first stream from?
I’m looking for a backup that is not coming from Freedocast or TVPC.

We had tons of links for FoxNews until Blinko went down. Then they all went out because they were actually streaming from Blinko.

If Freedocast goes down, we have no stream unless you have another stream.

I think Firefox suffers from memory leakage (i.e. the allocation grows over time until it is in paging territory). Could be Firefox itself or maybe some of the third party add-ons.

When I want to reduce memory usage without losing my place I'll hibernate the computer then resume. The hibernation cycle usually recovers enough wasted memory to get get the apps out of paging.

"This still carries Fox and no RealPlayer."

Since Blinko quit FOX I have been using tvpc, but I cannot get any volumn with them. Not sure I want to download RealPlayer either.

Yes, the sound isn’t great. Try here:
http://freetubetv.net/index.php

They carry Fox (it’s on the main page, in the Top 5 list) and the sound is better. Not a lot better but better. :)

Freetubetv also carries a bazillion other channels. No RealPlayer required.

You can try VLC Media Player. Plays Most formats including some Real Media streams.

You're very welcome! Gosh, you must really love Fox News! :)

Don't forget to check out this site too:

They have lots more channels. Who needs to pay cable?

I dunno! Try another browser? Change your settings?
Ok, I tried putting the cursor on the player, just below the pause button. A drop down offers “This Frame” and when that’s highlighted another menu appears saying “Show only this frame” which opens another window showing only the player, no ads.
I’m using Firefox with windows xp.

Oops, forgot the right click thingy. Put cursor just below pause button, right click, “this frame” highlight ...”show only this frame.”

That worked for me.

Or you could shut your right eye! :)

Thanks. I will try it later with the curser thing. I don’t know why but when I go to sites like these I can’t seem to get out of them and end up having to use the ctrl alt delete to shut all the way down in order to get out of them. :-(

You probably need to explore the capabilities of your browser. Go into its tools and see what options there are for blocking popup ads. Might try blocking cookies for all but a few sites in which they’re useful (like FR).
And stay outta the worst sites like townhall.com! When I go there I need to ctrl-alt-del too, it’s like walking into a blizzard.

Add ons kill firefox. You can try disabling them by going to tools, add-ons.

Or, you could try google chrome. Very light and resource friendly.
