Tv On Pc (via Internet) - Any Good?

Recommended Posts

Presumably it couldn't find anything to connect to, so has TVU died?

No, it still works, maybe you just need to download the latest version.

Of the US networks there's only Fox left. Looks like NBC, ABC and CBS all set their lawyers on them. I'm actually surprised, because I would have thought the Murdoch empire would have been the first to complain.

There's still another 50 or so channels, but nothing much worth watching.

When you select a channel to view and you see the buffering starting to slip backwards what is that telling me?

Simple' Why pay money and why download software when you can watch over 5,000 free International tv via the internet? visit: http://wwitv.com/

Scoll down the page and pick the country you wish to watch then the page comes up with many FTA channels and all you need is real player and or media player ( the latest version 11)

And you will be watching live international tv in moments.. And if you wish to view it on your large television all you do is connect cable audio and image pc to the tv and thats all it takes simple :) And im here to give you my 1 cent on this that beats the rest of all money eaters :)

you can watch all free and live with a quality of 300K or more some may be 100 or less but pretty much theres 100's to choose and watch.. Including the national highway stream camera patrol 24/7 in vaginia usa.

Wow.. sounds umm intimate

Anyway I am using sopcast at the moment. Most of it is crap but they are showing Channel 10 sydney every night big brother is on... If you are using XP, the "allow" Sopcast but "block" the Sopcast Adver

You know wwitv.com, try to this website :

http://www.tvonline.2ya.com

It’s free with nothing to download, Just need a media player. :blush:

Looks good, but it appears that you need THE media player (not just any) - now WMP11 is good at a few things, but playing widescreen video is not one of them. I prefer VLC media player for that because you can easily change the aspect ratio.

To phrase that another way, how can I view these streams on a widescreen tv/monitor without the black bars at the top & bottom?

I hope it's something microsoft fix in future versions because right now it's a fairly severe limitation.

It's true that WMP is not perfect even in its 11 version. To put in full screen, you must to double-click on the video. Idem to reduce it.

G'day,

Had problems posting mate? Got it 3 times on screen it seems, Thought it was the servers on here...

Anyway, Internet TV from what I've seen can be interesting, some Asian countries love the Internet streaming scene it seems, ESPN and Star Sports both having some promotion from TVU.

There are links to watch Cricket matches live online as well, via Internet TV, so those matches that dont get played on either FTA or Pay TV, are now accessible

The TVersity forums contain a forum which lists free streaming TV channels (and other content). Some dross there but some good stuff too.

Anyone see this on Today Tonight????

http://au.todaytonight.yahoo.com/article/4...ut-price-pay-tv

Any thoughts.

Some bloke charges you $50 for a program to watch Net TV.

You can get the same program as a free download.

Quality with AUS broadband, Zzzzzzz, hopeless. Some of the channels such as news, have stories that are hours old, not current. Its a toy thing really.

Try CHANNELCHOOSER, pretty much the same thing, free too:

There is no software allowing that.

There is an IPTV provider in the US broadcasting those channels but they're only allowed inside the US.

Same goes for the CBS Fox websites (like Hulu) - you can watch if you're in the US. Some people talk about getting it but they're bypassing the local checks by using US proxy servers - they're not just doing a simple subscription.

iTunes sells US shows from those networks too - but only the US iTunes store, not the Australian (which sells US-ABC and Aus-ABC, but not CBS/Fox etc).

Hmmm....specifically, what type of cables would allow one to view the video and audio contents from a pc on your tv? Ive heard of a number of people doing this but they've never mentioned about the cables they used. I don't suppose you could use firewire and transfer the contents to a dv recording device?

Thanks

Hi to all,

I have read it. This is best post.

Ver TV en Internet es el futuro?

El vertiginoso crecimiento en los últimos años de las emisoras de radio y TV en Internet hace pensar en un posible futuro cambio tecnológico del mercado.

Al igual que ha sucedido con el mercado de la música, donde la tecnología ha cambiado completamente el modelo de negocio, los avances en la cantidad y calidad de las emisiones multimedia por Internet dan mucho qué pensar sobre lo que va a suceder con la radio y la televisión.

Hasta hace muy poco tiempo era muy difícil pensar que se podían seguir las noticias en directo o un acontecimiento deportivo desde un país lejano. Sin embargo la difusión de radio en vivo por Internet ha hecho posible el alcance de una audiencia mundial a muy bajo coste. De hecho, hoy en día, cualquier aficionado puede crear un canal de radio o TV en Internet, desde su propia casa y con muy pocos medios, emitiendo radio o TV en vivo para todo el mundo.

En el caso de la radio, dado que no precisa un gran ancho de banda, la calidad de las emisiones es absoluta, siendo incluso a veces más cómodo escuchar la radio “on line” que a través de un sintonizador convencional. La única pega puede ser que las emisiones a través de Internet se escuchen con algunos segundos de retraso.

En el caso de la TV en Internet, la calidad de hoy no puede compararse con la calidad de las imágenes que podemos ver en un televisor moderno, sobre todo con la llegada de la alta definición. Sin embargo muchos canales de televisión ya se pueden ver de forma muy aceptable mediante un ordenador. Pero la tecnología sigue creciendo y el ancho de banda es cada vez mayor, lo que permite una mayor velocidad de transmisión de datos y consecuentemente una mayor definición de las imágenes.

Tal vez llegue un momento en el que la red tenga capacidad suficiente de cubrir holgadamente la demanda de TV mundial. Si llega ese momento, cualquier televisor que pueda conectarse a Internet podrá sintonizar miles de canales de todo el mundo sin necesidad de pagos ni subscripciones. Tal vez, entonces, igual que ha ocurrido en el mundo musical, el modelo de negocio tendrá que cambiar.
