StageNext is a video site that has high quality videos of some television shows. It also has movies but there weren't very many (less then 30) and most weren't actual movies that you would recognize mostly some really obscure stuff. The site is quite slow to load, and the about and Faq parts of the site don't even work. There's a lot of old cartoons and Star Trek episodes, and what was flagged as pornography but was titled obscurely. It turned out it was episodes of Malcolm in the Middle which for some reason required you to be over eighteen years of age to watch?

The entire design and working of the site seems to be a real copy of Stage 6 so it does work. The videos load surprisingly fast. Some of the shows, like South Park, are ripped straight from the DVD and have additional footage so that was quite nice. There's also an option to download the videos but it requires you to reload the page after having played the video, which is kinda stupid since you can just right click on the divx web player and click save file as.

Some of the things on this site require you to register an account, and there seems to be a premium membership that you can buy. Although there was no way to find out more or even to learn about what it offers without registering first. There's 26 pages of tv shows and most are a mix between south park, malcolm in the middle, zelda, star trek, boy meets world, and a few episodes of Lost from Season 4.

Stage Next doesn't have a lot of television shows, but what it does have is a whole lot of fast loading and working televisoin shows. I only recently heard about this site so I'm anxious to see how long this site lasts. Right now it seems reliable but the site loads sluggishly and they could improve on this by fixing or buying some better hosting. Stage Next could really take high quality videos to the next level, if only they had more of a wider television show selection.
