Makes sense it's for paid members. 
 
For the free users you have two options which make watching the Justin.tv TNTs a lot easier.
  

 
Also people who had trouble watching TNTs live in the past might want to try again. I noticed this week it had different quality options 360p, 720p etc when I put my mouse over the video stream. Maybe if you lower the quality you could watch the TNTs live.

Glad to see these archived!

Paid members only for recorded TNTs? Lame.

Edited by FlyingRat

I assume it only being available for paid members is a mistake...?
 
Not cause i would mind, by the way, cause they can very easily be viewed from Justin.tv, which is exactly why i think it'd be weird if they made them Paid Members only here.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. Giant bomb!?

Probably a mistake. Can't imagine these would only be for paying members.

Edited by Y2Ken

Aw, man... hope this isn't staying paid only. I doubt it will somehow.
 
Not forgetting, you can totally just watch it on Justin.tv like I've always done before they started archiving on here.

Its really nice that they started archiving these. This way i can watch the ones i want more often than i get to normally =D

5,791.2 KB/s ?! Man, top speed for me is just 80 :(

Paid, oh please be joking. I didn't watch TNT last night just because of them being put on later. This makes me sad.

Posted by natetodamax

Lame as hell it's exclusive to paid members. Justin.TV is a broken ass website and I hate watching TNT on there.

Thank you Vinny, I really appreciate it.

Not too weird if this is what they're doing. Because I guess here they're paying the bandwidth costs where they don't have to for justin. I think. Actually I don't know how paying justin works, so who knows. 
 
Maybe it's like they're not cutting out the free members because they know you can watch the archives, but for paying members they can check it out here and avoid all those god damn annoying justin tv ads (which have gotten better, thankfully)

I'm greateful they have this on the site now

Posted by MrGetBonus

 Yeah, wouldn't be surprised if it actually was for paid only. They always said they weren't gonna put it up on the site before because it was too resource intensive or some shit, but now they got paying members so it's all good.

Posted by prencher
@Skrams:  You can still watch it on justin.tv.
 
@natetodamax:  Then pay for an account. Beggars can't be choosers. (Assuming it wasn't a mistake.)

@prencher: JTVs archive system is disgusting but if this is only for paid members I'd probably have to watch it on there.
Posted by Jayross

I love that the TNTs are being posted on the site now. That is awesome.

Posted by Bboy_Izilla

Glad that the site is able to make money, but yeah...I'm good on this.

Edited by navyboy

Please keep uploading these

Really? I never experienced any problems. 
 
UStream, now there was a bitch and a half. So glad they stopped having them there.

Usually its either the player decides to stop halfway through the 2 hour chunk and I'd have to refresh and watch it load its slow ass back up. Or when the video is just black and has 0:00 and doesn't start. Call me unlucky but JTV hates me.
Posted by JakeTaylor

Too bad it's members only. Couple more money worries I need to take care of before I can support you guys!

Posted by oddduck

Is this video actually working for anyone? It won't play for me in browser, and when I tried to download it, it crapped out at around 20%.

Posted by DizzyMedal
@Skrams:
Huh, does sound like it's out to get you. Never had a problem like that.
 
The thing I hated about justin.tv was it's video ads. And not the ads themselves because, yeah, I get it, you need money and I'm not going to give you any of mine, but video ads that don't adhere to the volume you've set the player at? That can be unpleasant with headphones. 
 
Haven't actually seen a video ad at jtv since they redid the player, but no doubt they're coming back.
Posted by alternate

I would support this as a paid member bonus - and as you can see I am not a paid member (damn paypal).
 
Reasoning being that regular members can still see this for free @justin.tv and members subs go towards the gb bandwidth for hosting it in a more convienient location.
 
I think this is the way to go for content on sites.  (almost) everything available to everyone but if you contribute then the reward is convenience.

Posted by alternate
@Skrams: Have you tried downloading from JTV and watching it locally?  Something like fileget for firefox or the chrome equivalent.  Or the direct links are posted on the forum.

@oddduck: Works for me on HD.

Not sure where the hate for last weeks TNT is coming from, to be honest. Will and Vinny were hilarious as the hosts. I love Jeff and Ryan fo sho, but they can't bash last week when this show aired. Lotta creepin' on the fighting girls by the guest, and not a lot of hilarious banter.  
 
I am glad Jeff gave MvC3 a good review, though! He certainly has become a decent fighter, judging from these matches.

Posted by ImperiousRix

Can't see this, because I'm not a paid member. 
I just wanted to make it known that I was the dick Arthur. 
That is all.

If Super Smash Bros were a legit fighting game it would be this.
Edited by Marokai

Allowing non-paid members to watch it the first time, love it, then immediately do a bait and switch forcing us to subscribe to see any more of them is kind of uncool. (And yes, I know I can watch them on shitty jtustintv. It's such a trivial, lazy thing to do anyway. Of all things for them to monetize, they decide to ask for money over content they were already doing in the first place. Blegh.)

I've yet to try downloading it but I'll look into since it sounds more reliable. Thanks.

@Skrams: Devildoll puts download links to every TNT video in my thread. Save you the effort :)
Edited by Marlowefire

 @Skrams: i for one like that this is for paid members. I try to export to youtube from justin.tv which you can do as well but the quality just isnt HD, which I can get from the site. 
 
Create a justin.tv account, export to youtube, and watch on your tv through your WD tv live box or any number of media streaming boxes that allow youtube. It even autocreates a playlist so you can just watch it all back. Then you dont have to deal with the broken site that j.tv is, or the ads.

@X19:  Thanks for the work. I shall remain a cheap bastard for as long as I can!

Thank you guys for archiving this for us. Now I just have to wait ten hours for it to download. 

Posted by Marlowefire
@Marokai: I think its more like the free happy hours. You got a taste, is $50 a year too much?  Its a 2.6 gigabyte file man. The bandwith costs on that arent free.  
 
So take that taste, and support the site. sheesh.  Why cant people just open a checking account and use their visa check card? Thats what I did.

Oh right, didn't think about bandwidth costs. Well in that case it makes sense.
Posted by Winsord

I love having TNTs on here; so convenient. I'll keep this is mind for next week, rather than watching it on crusty old archived JT. ;)

Posted by MetalGearSunny

BOO.

Posted by slyspider

Yay! Its on the site! Wait paid members only? WTF WHY? 

Posted by CrashTanuki
@Marlowefire: 2.6 GB is insane for any video on GB. Happy Hours are 400-500 MB for a 90 minute video, so why would a two hour video be about five times bigger? It shouldn't be much bigger than any other video they've ever uploaded on here before and thus not much more of a load than quick looks and the endurance run.

This is just STUPID GIANTBOMB... This really pisses me off. Ok, it is a paid members only thing but you should AT LEAST inform us about it. I do not pay not because I'm cheap but because I don't have money. I can barely pay my internet conection bills... I know I can watch this on justin but their streaming service is way slower than giantbomb's because of the quality it records... Please guys stop doing this...

Paid members only? Cool :D

Posted by Portis

YES! 
 
It's official, I can finally stop downloading the archive from Justin.tv with a Firefox add-on. Hated doing that.

@Deusx: OH NO I HAVE TO GO TO A DIFFERENT, SLIGHTLY SLOWER SITE! WAAAAAH WAAAAAH I AM WHINY AND OVER PRIVILEGED AND FEEL THAT THESE PEOPLE RUNNING A BUSINESS OWE ME SOMETHING FOR NO REASON AT ALL.
 
If you don't have enough money for luxury items, well, too bad.  This content is not a god given right that you deserve, and Giant Bomb is not a charity.  Get the fuck over it you whiny douche.
