Changing to TV Live Online
Perhaps I am old-fashioned, but TV live online seemed a bit far fetched, and it all seemed a bit too good to be true…
For a long time I ignored the pleas, of my Family, begging me to change from cable/satellite television , to live on line TV. So I decided to delve a bit deeper, and research the advantages, of changing to TV live online… When I was growing up, a Television set was situated in pride of place in the living room. Watching TV was a family occasion, we all sat down to watch the programmes together. Mind you the programmes were very limited back then. But changing to TV on the internet, was a big step for me…
Most households have a Television set, watching TV is one of the most popular pastimes, indeed many homes have several TV sets, the children having sets in their bedrooms, which really means that family quality time is a thing of the past. In many homes, TV is watched during mealtimes !!!
So, what s so great about changing to TV on the internet ? Well, the principal thing that swayed me towards changing to online viewing, was the monthly saving of between $80-$100 , what I was paying for cable/satellite TV. For online TV there is a one off payment of around $40, no further payments, no installation costs, and no cables or satellite dishes. ..
I used to miss lots of my favourite TV programmes, as I work away from Home . Now with online TV, I can tune in to my favourite shows, wherever, and whenever I want to. No more waiting for primetime Television. I can watch TV on my PC or laptop
Well what does TV online entail, is it difficult to set up? Do I need a technician or a computer expert to set it up for me? The answer to these questions is, NO All you need to watch TV online is a computer , an internet connection, and the software provided by the internet TV service of your choice The download is simple, and you are given clear instructions when you get this revolutionary software.
