There's something of a thrill in seeing a TV program live, to not having to wait for a download or for it to come up on iTunes. There's a lot of reasons why you would be using other methods to see your TV programs, such as not wanting to subscribe to cable for one or two programs. It's a waste of money, especially if you don't have the time or don't want to watch a lot of cable programs. There is an alternative, online TV streaming has been available for years, although you may not have heard of it.
If you have a computer then you have the means to watch cable TV. It's pretty much an open secret on the Internet at the moment. There's been a lot of buzz about bit torrent, and about downloads from iTunes, for TV programs and a lot of people take this route and it does make sense to do so, especially if you don't want a cable TV connection. But if you want to watch the shows live, or if the show is hard to get by other means, then consider online TV streaming as an alternative.
The chances are great that you've encountered streaming before. It's used all over the place on the Internet for one off videos on news sites and other sites. The quality of the video is sometimes pretty suspect, but at least you get to see it, right? With a client you can take it a step further, and get quality picture and the programs you wish to watch at the time they are airing.
The great thing as well is if you have a laptop then it's portable. As long as you have a cable Internet connection you can watch TV online anywhere you have a connection. Think of the possibilities! You could be traveling across the country or even overseas and still be able to watch TV from your home country!
Most of your friends know about iPods, but I bet they don't know about this. Like I said, it's an open secret, since you either know about it or you don't. The cable TV providers wouldn't want you to know about it, even though it's totally legal. If you want to watch that special program, or just want an alternative way to watch TV, then watching online TV streaming the way to do it. Who knows, you could start a whole new trend.
