I want a real live tv station online that's free and.....

...Isn't crap like local government, college broadcasts, tourism films for the local area, or christian programming.

Is there such a thing? A REAL tv station, broadcast LIVe on the internet? I haven't had much luck finding anything like this. There's plenty of city council meetings, college crap, 24 hour Christian preaching, etc... But no REAL channels .... It doesn't matter where it originates from, I'd just like to find one. Have you guys had any luck? p.s. I don't have the TV Tuner thing in my computer. That's why I'm trying to find something free. Yes, I am cheap.

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum. I meant well.

Well, I know that NBC and CBS have some of their shows free to watch on their web sites after they air. Not the same thing, but it's fun.

What he said. It does work.

Though it's just a novelty for me as I have cable tv.

These are interesting and seem potentially good. I'll let you know after I explore it a bit. Thanks!

On channelbreak, I've been getting the music stations to play, but not the horror movie channel, dammit.

I was looking for live streaming tv, like news, rather than VOD, but this is very cool too and will give me something to do.

If there were a free porn channel, I'd never turn my computer off.
