Most "satellite" TV for computers is a really "egregious" (near) SCAM. These are basically search engines that charge you to do what you could do any way...that is, search for internet TV broadcasts. These so-called computer TVs are NOT TV tuners...they simply show you a web site that is sending a TV show...and mostly not in real time that a REAL TV tuner can do. You want to try a FREE one, just download "TVUPlayer" This one incidently is often "slipped in" one of those that you pay for...but it's free. Don't get scammed...you want TV for your computer, buy a real TV tuner for less than 100 bucks! Like Hauppauge.

I have actually come across a few sites that rate some of the top providers in this area, and yes at first look i thought it was closer to a scam then anything else. i can find free tv shows online in many different areas.
that was until a buddy of mine bought one of these, yes there was a one time payment for the downloaded software, but he loves it. he figures that he just doesn't have the time to scan the internet for 3000+ channels that these guys can offer they've already done the footwork for you thats what the fee is for not for giving you nothing for something but for making it easier to find what it is you want.

That's an extremely generic name. Google "internet tv service" and you'll get all sorts of stuff. Give us a URL.
Here's what I've done:
I cancelled my Dish Network account last year. I have an antenna, and I have an Internet-capable Blu-ray player. The player gives me Netflix, Hulu Plus, and a lot of other services I never or rarely use.
I'm currently setting up an old laptop as a DVR for the broadcast stations (the ones I get over the air). Since the laptop is also connected to the Internet, I can use it for streaming videos from services that my Blu-ray player doesn't support.
I admit that this setup isn't optimal for a sports fan, since the only live sports coverage I can get is from local broadcast stations. But I'm not a sports fan, so that's not a problem for me.

Your Data Transfer Rate has a LOT to do with Any streaming service. My (Philippine) DSL only has a 220Kbs down speed. That's not fast enough to "stream" anything. Consequentially I have to DL everything before I can watch it. Some HUGE TV DL's (34Gig'ish) take up to 6 months to DL.
