Ever wonder how is it possible that people of all ages can find their way to watch favorite TV shows, sports, movies and other programs online? Well, it's really not that hard. It doesn't take a tech savvy person to create his/her own watch TV online system nowadays. To beat the high cost of paid television subscription fees or buying an expensive Internet-ready smart television or hardware, there's another option a person can consider that doesn't cost much and very easy to setup.
Just a computer with access to the Internet and special software is all it takes to get access to 100s if not 1000s of free TV content online instantly. Some people are savvy enough to find some of the channels and shows online manually but for others who either don't have the time or find it a bit difficult may want to rely on automation and technology to do all the work.
There's software out there, namely TV software for PC and Mac that helps newbies and TV enthusiasts alike setup a do-it-yourself web system where they get instant access to 1000s of live and on-demand global channels and shows. This includes sports, sitcoms, movies, news, radio stations, music and the list goes on. With a stroke of a key, the user simply points and click to any country, genre and channel of choice to watch a program online.
This technology is best suited for individuals who use their computers a lot, looking for more channels to watch, are living with or without cable/satellite or simply want to watch television from any location in or out of the home.
The software is really a TV player preloaded with tons of local, national and international channels and radio stations. The 1-2-3 setup process doesn't require a manual. The on screen instructions are easy enough to follow when downloading and installing the software. Moreover, there are feature enhancements inside the player such as Full Screen and Add to Favorites that heightens more enjoyment.
This type of multimedia software comes with support, at least the pay-to-download ones. When sticking with the top leading TV for PC and Mac brands such as Satellite Direct, a lifetime membership with tech support, channel updates and software upgrades is included. This also helps keep the technology from becoming obsolete, entertainment getting stale and user losing interest.
Perhaps the best benefit is downloading the software to a laptop where the user creates a TV traveling companion to watch favorite programs anytime, anywhere. There are many countries with channels in various languages to suit users who speak English or Non-English.
Although using this technology is opposite of sitting on the couch at home with the remote in hand and watching a small/large screen television, this web TV system offers another dimension with advantages such as:
* Creates extra TV via desktop
* Creates 'TV Anywhere' system via laptop
* Instant access to English and Non-English channels
* Offers more freedom and savings with less restrictions than traditional TV
* Quick, easy setup that take less than 5 minutes without adding hardware or wires
* Can connect web TV system to any television
The downsides are not many which outweigh the cons. This technology is best used with a broadband (cable or DSL) Internet connection. Higher the connection speed better the picture quality and overall performance. Using a wireless connection works well enough but some channels may have a harder time playing than others.
These kinds of 3rd party services help individuals watch more and search less when employing automation. The whole idea is letting users rely on a service to do all the work so the user can sit back and enjoy watching his/her favorite programs online.
To build a robust system to watch live TV online, individuals can add other free on-demand TV/Video websites such as hulu.com, xfinitytv.comcast.net, tv.com, youtube.com and others. Sprinkling in some of the subscription fee websites such as Amazon Instant/Prime Video, Netflix, NBA, NFL game pass sites and others provide a la carte programming that should fit anyone's pockets -- without having to purchase a bundle package. This can boost a person's enjoyment of watching television online for many years to come.
