Can I Watch TV On My Computer?

Posted in Watch TV On PC tagged , , , , , , , at 3:04 pm by admin

Today there is a simple alternative to a pricy satellite dish and a decoder.

Remember how hard it was to install a 18 inch satellite dish correctly to the right side? And a decoder that ate bunch of cards with their monthly and yearly fees going up so fast.
You can use a computer not only as an Internet browser or typing machine. Your laptop or desktop pc can be Your personal multimedia centre! If used the correct software and following to an easy step-by-step guide You can throw out Your big satellite system and enjoy the benefits if the 21st century.

How this stuff works?

Actually there are two ways how to get thousands worldwide channels to Your computer.

1. There a specialized hardware for pc’s called PCTV card. With them Your computer is like a decoder but without a dish and metres of wires. There are external and internal ones. The internal one looks like a PCI card and the external PCTV card is used to connect to the PC via USB. These cards receives satellite feeds.
This method costs some good money but it’s better and cheaper anyway.

2. The second way is to install the software on Your computer that allows You to stream satellite channels live directly to Your PC. You just need one program and an Internet connection to choose from variety of channels provided.

Based on personal experience and many reviews these three methods can be compared:

1. Standart satellite dish and decoder – It’s very pricy and sticky. It’s not easy to install one Yourself and You always depend on weather. Even little wind can ruin Your comfortable evening and turn off Your TV.

2. PCTV cards are good but it will cost You, too. For example Pinnacle PCTV Stic’s starting price is 150$ + also You’ll have to accept the another device connected to the PC.

3. Watch TV On PC software is great because You won’t need to buy any hardware or devices and It’s very easy to install on Your computer. You can watch over 12,000 channels from anywhere You want or connect Your computer to Your usual TV. That’s a huge plus but there is another one.

Let the prices speak for themselves – for example we’ll watch our satellite channels for two years:

1.Terk 18″ Satellite dish antenna with 3 LNB’s + CE LABS HD100AQ HDTV Digital Decoder + card&channels using fees = $86.16 + $229.99 + ~300 = $616,15

2.  DVBS-100 Satellite Tv Tuner Card + fees = $80.55 + ~$100 = $180.55

3.  Watch TVon PC Software = $44.95
