I was helping my little cousin set up his recently purchased Windows 8 laptop, and we were exploring the Windows App Store. We came across a pretty cool TMNT app that has the entire 2k3 run available for viewing. It's not a DVD release (which I would love) but it still is nice to have a place outside of YouTube to watch the series. Unfortunately this app is not available on the Apple store, which is what I currently use.

Hell yeah! This is awesome dude, thanks for the heads up. Now I can finally watch BTTS in decent quality and have 2k3 on the go, too. :D

Wow, cool.

Though it seems to have a lot of one-star ratings (http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/watch-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles/d47c85c8-e084-48b2-a819-922cc2e5b6a7). Because it doesn't seem to actually play episodes.

We didn't have any issues watching a couple episodes last night. Hopefully it doesn't become a concern. My cousin loves the 2k3 show since he grew up on it.

I wonder why this isn't on the Apple i-tunes.

I wonder why this isn't on the Apple i-tunes.

Because it's probably not a legal app. There are tons of apps on Android that perform similar functions. It probably is Youtube streaming the videos, just wrapped in a nice application.

iTunes doesn't have these because they have an intense screening process for their applications and illegal stuff doesn't fly with them. However if you jailbreak your phone you have other options.

Sorry for the off-topic post, but I thought I'd let it be known that there's also an app on there with all the episodes from the OT.

I'm looking to upgrade my windows components in my apartment. Currently running 32bit Win 7 on my Apple Net.
I use my Apple devices for most of my work, but I use my Sony Vaio to watch all my toons, and that's where I keep all of my Turtles ( currently started watching S4 again ).
The 64 bit Win8 is being looked into, but I specifically want a TouchSmart device. I couldn't find one in the stores I was looking in last Sunday.
This news about the Turtles Aps is pretty cool. I'm guessing then, that they are DVD quality?
Although I have these in the Vaio, having them, as was stated earler, on the move, will be cool. The only on the move turtles that I have is the 2012 season, in my iPhone.

Hmm. I might actually get a Windows 8 just for this :o That's really cool, man!

It's no reason to switch to Windows 8, I assure you. It seems they're just youtube rips, the quality is pretty crappy. At least that's the case for BTTS, anyway. Haven't watched any outside of that last season.

lol I was kinda joking, but thanks for the heads up anyway. I wonder if the app was probably made by tmntuploader or someone like that. :roll:

I don't see why this is so special. It's more convenient to download all the episodes from YouTube. Also I guess this means that the Windows 8 store doesn't have a strict approval process... or an an approval process at all.:tlol: Also Windows 8... is no prize.

So you're saying it's less effort to manually rip every episode one by one than to have them all at your disposal by clicking one tab? Maybe you don't know what convenient means.

Even the prospect of TMNT has the touch of a button isn't enough reason for me to switch to Win 8. I'll stay with my Win 7.

I have it set up so all I have to do is get to the video and press a button. :tcool:

You mean... spending hours downloading the eps are easier than going to an app?

Of course, don't you know anything about science...

But that's like fifteen gigabytes of space wasted on... ahh, heck. Whatever. I'm done. :P

Um...he's not saying 1 episode takes that long...he saying downloading a whole season could take a couple hours...

I don't get why this stuff is allowed without someone pulling it down. Isn't all of 2k3 uploaded on youtube too? I remember it being there last I checked, but I'm not sure if its every single episode.

A couple Back to the Sewer episodes have been pulled down, but besides that, nothing.

I think Viacom just doesn't care all that much. They're never going to profit from it. YouTube even identifies the 2k3 episodes as copyrighted content, but Viacom has done virtually nothing.
