    Whats the rule here? Do people still "obtain" movies and tv shows while at uni? Or are most of the file sharing/torrent softwares blocked by the uni network? I can't imagine going so long without my tv shows.

    Also, I'm a big football fan, can I stream the games live on my laptop or will that be blocked as well?

    depends on the uni :p:
    some are hot on it, and block the ports, or limit the amount you can download and upload, some i hear like a 100mb a day, which a film to download is about 700mb

    some don't care, glad i went to one that didn't care :p:

    if we knew the uni, it be easier for people to tell, what their stand point is
