3 steps to watching TV on your PC
Visit the show’s network website
1. If the show is still on TV, you can search the website of the network the show is broadcast on. Most networks make the latest episodes of their most popular TV shows available shortly after the show has aired on TV. Most shows on local channels are free to watch online, however some networks require people to sign in with a user ID before being able to watch cable TV shows online.
Visit popular online TV show sites
2. If you cannot find the show you are looking for on the network’s website, you should visit legitimate sites that play TV shows. Hulu, Netflix, and Crackle are popular reputable sites that have old and new TV shows. Hulu has free and paid TV shows. Their paid TV shows require a membership to their site. Netflix requires a membership to their site. Crackle does not have a membership fee; all of their TV shows are free to watch.
Visit TV download sites (optional)
3. If you want to save TV shows on your computer, you can use a download site to save the TV show you want to watch. iTunes is a popular site to download TV shows, however they do charge for every episode download. If you want to download several episodes, you can save money by purchasing a season pass on iTunes.
Tips on How to watch TV on your PC
There are several websites that have free TV shows; however every site is not legitimate. It is very important to watch TV shows only on well-known sites. Watching a TV show on a site that claims it is free and does not have advertisements can cause your computer to be infected with spyware.
