Watch Live Streaming TV
Streaming TV refers to watching streaming TV programming, movies and videos from online sources not through an internet box, like the RoKu Box, but on a computer or laptop that can be or is connected to your HDTV. This gives er to you full-screen TV-Video viewing experience of online content in the large screen format you may prefer. Of course, you can always watch online TV on your computer or laptop in the full-screen mode at home or when traveling. It's a little hard to watch TV this way so it may not be for everyone at this time but, it is the future of TV.
Nowadays many people are choosing online TV for the unlimited and great variety of video content available. There are many sources for online TV, YouTube is the most popular, but there are more little-known websites offering some form of video from YouTube style videos to live streaming TV shows, cable channels, local government channels to international TV from around the globe. The quality of the video can range from poor to 720p HD. A plus to this type setup is you will be able to view your computer on your TV when you surf the net.
Streaming LIVE TV is catching on, but you will need to configure your computer or laptop to view on your TV or HDTV for viewing online TV and this may take some tech skills. This type of TV viewing might not be for everyone, but if you like to be on the cutting edge of technology and adapt easily, you will enjoy Online TV. You may have to Google the net for more detailed instructions and methods of connecting your computer or laptop to your TV. There are even online videos showing how to do it. I will give a brief description below to get you started, then you can expand on it. We can even help you do it when we install your antenna.
There are a few methods to get connected to Online TV. First, you need a computer or laptop, the newer and faster, the better. Windows 7 Media Center is great and is now used by many high-end home theater configurations. A Mac can also be used. Some of my customers have purchased a low-cost computer and added a dual Digital TV card for Over-The-Air viewing through the computer tuner card. Windows 7 Media Center has a TiVo type DVR included for the recording of TV shows. If you have a somewhat fast computer you have stopped using and is just collecting dust, you may want to experiment with it. You need a good video card and make sure your video card driver is up to date.
To Connect your computer or laptop to your HDTV, most newer HDTV's have a couple types of inputs for a computer hookup. Some older TV's may have a standard computer monitor VGA DB9 plug and even older desktops or laptops have a yellow video out or s-video that will work. Most all TV's have these inputs. But some HDTV's have a DVI monitor input plug, and most HDTV's now have HDMI inputs. Your computer needs to have the same corresponding output connector. For a laptop with an HDMI connection, (Mac needs an adapter for HDMI) you would place your laptop/Mac next to your TV and with an HDMI cable, (you can purchase low cost 12' or more online if you need a longer cable) plug the HDMI cable into your laptop and the other end into your HDTV's HDMI input. Change your TV's input or source to the HDMI input you are using. If your laptop is on, you should see your laptop on your TV. HDMI carries audio, if you don't hear your laptop's sound on your TV, you may need to change some settings on your computer, such as a second monitor in the display settings. Or you may need a second cable for audio to connect your laptop's audio out to your sound system if you're using a VGA cable. With a desktop computer, you may have to get a DVI to HDMI converter plug or a converter plug for the setup you choose. After you get picture and sound from your desktop or laptop on your HDTV, you will be ready to watch online TV on your full size HDTV. There are wireless remotes available for your computer/laptop to regain remote control.
Start Watching online TV-Video on your HDTV full screen the way you like. Simply go to the website for the videos you want, you can go directly to the TV Network or Cable Channel website to view available videos or shows. Let's say you missed the nightly NBC news, go to http://www.msnbc.msn.com to view that day's news that aired earlier on TV or view on a RoKu box. Like HGTV or ESPN, go to their websites and view available content and shows. At the bottom of each video there is usually a full screen button to click to expand the video to full screen instead of the smaller inset video. Click, "Esc" to exit full screen mode. You may want to try Boxee TV on your computer/laptop it is a FREE download program at, (www.boxee.tv). After you install it, you will have access to stream thousands of TV shows and TV series to your computer/laptop and to your HDTV.
