The good news is that online TV streaming is available. All you need are the right tools. It's done via cable or satellite TV, and you can watch your favourite TV programs on the internet at a fraction of the cost it would require to get cable connected to your home.
Online TV streaming is available via a client you download to your computer. It is legal to do so, and convenient. Especially if you move a lot, or are in a foreign country unable to get the shows you love to watch.
Once you have downloaded the client, all you need to do is install it. Once installation is complete, you may have to download additional codecs for your mediaplayer, real player or quicktime, but these are freely available at no additional cost. They allow you to see and hear the show on your computer.
Online TV streaming also allows you to see programs from other countries. There are a massive amount of stations available via your client. You don't have to pay extra for more channels, which is another bonus. Imagine being able to watch the news from Australia while you are travelling in the United States. You can do that via online streaming, and this is only one of the many uses such a client has.
I would recommend staying clear of free clients because of the chance of getting viruses or malware on your computer. Of course, not all free client have added extras like this, but it is playing Russian Roulette with your computer. The cost of getting a virus would more than justify paying, at the very least $50 for a legitimate program and never having to pay again.
Online TV streaming is the way of the future for cable TV. Paying for two connections ,when you need only pay for one, makes good financial sense. All you need are the right tools.
