    Seems GSN Programming is dragging its heels on releasing this week’s episode to Youtube (check the more recent comments from GSNVideos episode 4 at In the meantime, the show is up on Pokertube, some torrent site and someone else has put it up on Youtube themselves

    For those that don’t care to look for comments, the first one mentioned that they were going to hold it back a week from Youtube so that people actually watch the show on GSN (as GSN isn’t airing HSP again until Sunday). This makes zero sense on various levels, especially when they’ve had the show online on Sunday 3 of the past 4 weeks.

    Perhaps they read our comments … after all, your posting of last week’s episode resulted in nearly 2,500 views for them.

    So far this week, of course, it’s been zero. I’m hoping somewhere down the line they’ll see the value in making things easier for a “respectable” site like ours as opposed to a less-controlled torrent copy.

    It seems the logical way to beat the pirates is to release the product yourself. GSN has the capability to put out a full episode on Youtube, and some people don’t want to find part 1/4, then click again for 2/4, etc.

    I don’t understand why they don’t add it
    up like Hulu etc.. and sponsors and make it
    immediately available..

    Nowadays I pretty much watch House, Entourage 9when in season) and Life on the internet…

    They need to get with the times.. !!

    They have made progress in that direction, with putting full episodes on Youtube, and they had the episodes up in a timely manner 3 of the first 4 weeks this season.

    Also, even though there’s other places to watch the show (especially on Youtube), there’s still people in the comments from episode 4 asking when episode 5 will come online.

    I tried youtube and pokertube..
    They were pulled from both…

    I’m downloading a torrent now…

    What a pain!

    I’m going to assume that the GSNVideos account on Youtube got hacked somehow:

    Thank you. These ingrates are complaining that I am not uploading FREE FUCKING CONTENT for their pleasure.
    I DON”T CARE IF YOU BIT TORRENT THE SHIT OUT OF THE SHOW ASSHOLES. I HAVE BIGGER FISH TO FRY. I will try to get it up this afternoon for the true fans. To the haters eat a goblet of dick.

    This was after the same person posted a spoiler about next week’s episode (later removed).

    I got one word for you all….TIVO.

    Lots of other digital recording options out there if you don’t want TIVO.

    Bored late Sunday night before bed and I turn on the TIVO and cheer as I remember GSN was on earlier.

    The damn thing wants to record it twice each Sunday which is good since I had a problem with the first showing a couple weeks ago.

    That’d be a great option, if I actually had GSN.
