Free Simpsons!

I truly hope that this site doesn't get to publicized - only a couple blogs have caught it so far (didn't realize anyone still watched rocketboom). Anyway, there's this cool site that just plays every Simpsons episode - for free!

I'm sure it won't last - it can't be legal. But it does have a lot going for it:

  • Simple to use & navigate
  • Video quality is poor (less likely to watch on actual TV, less likely to anger Fox)
  • Easy to link to individual episodes
Hopefully studios/networks will look to what makes this sort of thing popular (beyond free), and can start using those principles to make on-demand content available to consumers. Maybe if each show had its own simple site that was easy to find, navigate, and link to?
