What do I need and which software should I get?
All you need is a computer, broadband internet connection (ADSL, cable, etc) and a software to watch TV channels on PC or laptop. You will only buy a software for a price much less than what you have to pay for the cable every month, and you only pay it once!
That's it, no hardware needed, no additional fees, you just need an internet connection and a software. Apparently, there are so many programs for this, but you have to search for the one with the easy interface, more channels and of course, less price.
Here are 2 of the best programs available, you can compare between the 2 of them and choose the one you like, my personal recommendation? They are excellent! But I like the first program's interface more:
Number of channels: 3,500
2-Satellite TV for PC:
Number of channels: 3000+
Both programs allows you to watch all the famous channels of all types (News, Movies, Sports, Music, Clips, Educational, Religious, Radio, etc.) and don't worry, it's legal.
Premiere channels are not available, such as HBO, Cinemax, and Showtime.
