First off, Klitetools is correct in his statement. BitTorrent is public enemy#1 with the MPAA right now, and they are doing their damndest to kill it. Second, no it is not safe to download these television shows as we have just read on our main page, LokiTorrent user logs are being gone over with a fine tooth comb by the MPAA legal lackies. This is an excellent question though, because until now, at least I have not read about television shows being a matter of interest to the MPAA. But they are.
I HOPE that they have the decency to simply send out letters of warning, or make a very public series of statements first, because many many people assume that there is nothing wrong with downloading a "free" broadcast.
Many people do not know this activity is different than making a personal backup and this situation will take them by surprise. It would seem prudent at this time to not clog the court system with suits if this can be controlled through public education with the media. Fair warning is needed.
In the meantime, if I were you I would hold up a while until we can see what action the MPAA is going to take against the LokiTorrent crowd and how the legal system reacts. I am speaking of course to you if you reside in the United States.
