UVNtv: Ice Cube’s Online TV Network | Free Streaming Hip-Hop Shows and Movies

UVNtv

Ice Cube accomplished a lot since his split with the classic hip-hop group N.W.A. back in the 90’s.

He’s had a successful solo rap career, starred in movies, and now, he’s teaming up with producer DJ Pooh to start an online TV station.

Currently, U View Network Television (or UVNtv) has 12 different streaming channels and plenty of on demand content. Not only is UVNtv like a TV station, but it also showcases user-generated videos too.

Content Available

Here’s a list of exclusive channels on the UVNtv:

  • DIDDYTV (by P. Diddy)
  • Rockstar (game previews)
  • Snoopadelic (self explanatory)
  • The Daily Chronic (brought to you by Dr.Dre)
  • The Source TV (the magazine)
  • HipHop247 (non-stop hip-hop music videos)
Screen

Much like the TV Guide, UVN also has a schedule of what appears on each of the channels in advance. You could always watch videos on demand, but be prepared to sit through a few commercials. Pey-Per-View video will soon be available.

Pros:

  • Streaming shows, movies, and music videos
  • HQ 720p streaming video
  • Full-Screen Capability

Cons:

  • Registration required
  • Must be 18 or older
  • Must install Microsoft’s Silverlight Plugin
  • Unable to pause video

Bottom Line:

The site just launched, so it’s only natural that a few bugs still need to be worked out. By using the Silverlight plugin, use is limited to compatible computers. When the next version of Silverlight is released, expect big things from this site.

    if you are looking for multi-lingual tv, online tv social community, social tv network, internet tv stations, tv channels, free global internet tv, broadband channels, live webcast, customized tv programmes, After testing various TV software and visiting loads of sites. most of them offer a free trial or preview and then they make you pay to sign up, or are cluttered with ads. I think that is ridiculous… so ive done my research and have found a couple of really decent sites. The first one Id like to draw your attention to is (—spam—) This site has almost 1300 channels from around the globe and counting. it is free to register and they dont ask for stupid details, just your username and email address. It actually streams live channels so you dont have to download any and they have a pretty easy way of finding the channel you want. You can search through genre, country, region or name of the channel. oh and there are no ads either. Check this one out. With over 1300 channels from hundreds of countries, loads of features like channel rating, user recommendations, live chat, profile pages and much much more.
