Free TV – Watch TV on your PC and never pay for cable or satellite TV again!
Get Free TV – Watching TV on PC instead of paying for cable or satellite TV
Once upon a time, not so long ago and right here on good ol’ Planet Earth, ALL TV was free TV! From it’s invention Television was free for everyone. Until the rise of the cable and satellite services the only costs involved with watching TV were the price of a TV set and the electricity to run it. But as the early sellers of cable and satellite television pointed out, getting a good signal was often troublesome and there weren’t very many channels to choose from.
But I am going to let you in on a secret your cable or satellite provider doesn’t want you to know about…
Free TV is still available! And thanks to modern digital technology is BETTER than cable or satellite TV!
How Free TV watched on your PC is better than cable or satellite TV
Simply put watching TV on PC will give you more HD channels than cable and satellite TV combined!
Let me explain this in terms that are easy to understand.
1. The Signal – Modern TV is broadcast free over the air (OTA) all over the world in a digital format. The signal that arrives OTA is uncompressed, that means it is delevered exactly the way the broadcaster sent it originally. Whether you are on cable or satellite the signal you get has been processed. It’s been compressed and encrypted so that the signal can be transmitted by the cable or satellite system and is unviewable by anyone that doesn’t have that system’s special equipment. Going through the process of compression and encryption and then uncrompression and decryption degrades the signal. You can see this for yourself with a simple pair of “rabbit ears” available for about $10 at any Kmart, Target or Walmart store. Spend an evening watching your favorite shows on one of the “big three” channels (CBS, NBC or ABC), see the difference for yourself. If you really want to get fancy get an A-B switch and switch back and forth between the OTA and Cable/Satellite box, the difference is startling!
2. The Number of channels – If you follow my advice above you probaly noticed a lot more than three channels available OTA. In my home area, which is considered a medium sized market, there are more than 40 HD TV channels and more are being added all the time! There are even half a dozen Spanish HD TV channels available locally. Many of these channels run high quality movies, old TV shows from years gone by, all news, all weather, all sports and much more. All of this is totally free (save for the cost of a TV set, electricity and a pair of rabbit ears) and doesn’t violate any laws or Homeowner Association rules. (note: modern “rabbit ears” can be “hidden” just about anywhere and some will even fit on the wall behind the flat screen itself!)
But wait, there’s more! Most TV screens built since 2006 have the connections for hooking your PC up to your TV. If you have a newer PC (say a 2009 or later) you can use an HDMI to HDMI cable to connect your PC to your monster flat screen and you can then feed signals from your PC to your TV and have even more options to choose from. Anthing that you can view on your computer can be passed to the TV and enjoyed by the whole family.
Even more Free TV to watch on your PC
Yep, there is still more out there for watchers of free TV. For the truly adventurous TV watcher there are watch TV on PC software programs available that gather OTA signals from all over the world. Depending on which software you choose you can have anywhere from 3000 to 4500 or more HD TV channels to enjoy.
Let me say that again, the watch TV on PC software programs will deliver anywhere from THREE THOUSAND to FOUR THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED HD TV CHANNELS!
Be careful though, there are some scam softwares for watching TV on PC out there… that is why this site was created to help you get the cable or satellite TV monkey out of your wallet while still helping you to enjoy all of the TV you want. Remember, in a matter of minutes, for less than the cost of one months cable or satellite service, you can be set up and watching thousands of TV channels forever without paying for anything more than the electricity.
