Internet TV Setup - Watch Television Online

"How to setup the TV and computer so that you don't have to watch your internet TV on your laptop.  Now you can sit on the couch and watch Netflix on your big screen TV."

There are lots of videos on the internet and on youtube, that show different websites you can go to in to watch TV on the internet.  I've done that myself in the form of a few blog posts and youtube videos.

Here's a link to my most viewed blog post of all time.  I just explain how sites like project free tv work and how to watch free TV shows.  And this is a youtube video i made basically doing the same thing but going step by step guide to Project Free TV with a live feed of my screen so that you can see what i'm doing.

But nobody on youtube ever really showed how they actually watched these videos at home.  I assume most people watch internet TV on their laptop or possibly on there iPad.   Maybe they sat at their desk and watched it through their desktop computer on a small monitor.  But for the past several years I have been watching internet TV on my full size flat screen TV in my living room.

Whenever people come over and see how I watch TV they are always amazed.  I think the more that people find out that this type of internet TV viewing is a possibility, the more people will start using it at their house. The best part about it, is that it's not complicated at all.  You are simply using your large flatscreen TV as your computer monitor and then controlling everything from your couch using a wireless keyboard and mouse.   That's it! 

I made this video in order to show people what I'm talking about.  It basically reiterates what I have just written about, but when you see my set up it will make it a lot easier to understand.

Internet TV Setup - Watch Free Television on a Computer 

You can see that at first it looks a bit complicated, but it's really not.  I use all the same cables as people have been using for years, there is nothing new.

I definitely think that in the future companies will try to combine the computer and television into one unit.  This is already happening with products like iTV, Google TV, XBox One, Playstation 4, etc.   All of those are just fancy computers that incorporate web browsers and of the functions that a computer already offers.  But they are all hybrids of the computer itself. If you're going to spend $100 - $400 you might as well just get a computer that can do everything they do and more.  In fact you probably already have a computer that can do everything and you don't need to spend any money at all.  That's the best part.  If you're reading this on anything other than a smart phone you probably already have all the equipment you need.

All I can say is give it a try, you won't be disappointed.  All you have to do is connect your audio and video cables from your computer to your TV.  That will turn your small computer monitor into a large flatscreen TV capable of viewing any show on the Internet.

When it comes to what show to watch and how to watch it, that's when those links up at the top come into play. Check out my blog posts and youtube videos on what are the best sites to go to, in order to watch any show or live sports on the internet.  Good luck and if you have any questions please ask me in the comments section below.
