Both History and Discovery online work for me as a non-subscriber - however, the website "remembers" my login I setup years ago (which was when I was a subscriber). I also can watch the U.S. History - which seems to be a year ahead of what is on Canada.
Maybe it is a glitch, but they still both work for me.
I looked at Slice, HGTV, and MTV and they don't have any cookies for me or a login. I watched some programming on MUCH's website with no issues either this weekend.
I agree that the quality is around 480p, but for free and completely legal, I can't complain. Also the selection of shows is sometimes limited or months after the air date - but again, free and legal...
Also I do watch some international channels online for free content - it is hit or miss (mostly news and sports highlight/commentary shows) are not geoblocked and free.
It's coming up to two months for me cutting back, and so far I haven't missed anything and have plenty of programming to watch between Skinny Basic, OTA, free online content, paid online content, and DVD/Blu-Ray seasons. Overall, been able to keep my purchases including Skinny down to under $40 a month, but the CFL season will test me...
