I want to stop paying exorbitant fees to the cable company and just stream T.V. like I hear everyone else is doing. I need to get a live local T.V. channel sometimes. Is there some service that provides live T.V. on line?
If you live close to a major metropolitan area it may be that just an antenna is all you need to get over the air broadcasts. Because of the switch to digital broadcasting live T.V. feeds over the air look better than ever. We however live in a rural community and have no access to those over the air live broadcasts and so recently as my bandwidth increased because I moved, I started looking into streaming live T.V.
I discovered that there were 4 or 5 different options for getting live T.V. coverage. Netflix for example doesn't provide any live T.V. just stored content. So there had to be other options. I looked at Hulu T.V. I looked at YouTube T.V. and a few others. DIRECTV has their own live T.V. version.
I settled on YouTube T.V. The price is reasonable the D.V.R. capabilities are generous and the number of channels they support fits our needs. You'll need to investigate each of these services. But each of them has a free trial period you can use to see if it fits your needs or not . YouTube T.V. turned out well for us. You may decide that a different one works for you. Most of them cover live T.V. from local channels in major metropolitan areas.
