Television on your PC over the internet comes of age. We have long had TV on your
PC through a hardware broadcast receiver which was plugged in to your PC. With the
advent of faster broadband, this was followed by software packages which could receive
TV over the internet onto your PC.
The channel choice and, more importantly, the picture quality was very poor in the
early software packages and put many people off of the concept. Video streaming software
has been improving significantly over the last few years and has made dramatic improvements
to picture quality. Coupled with ever increasing broadband speeds becoming widely
available, quality pictures and many more channels are now in place.
The streaming quality is now so good that high definition (HD) channels can be received
and viewed on your computer, whether desktop or laptop. The fact also that cathode
ray televisions have pretty well disappeared from the retail shops and that television
sets are now either plasma or lcd means that the television and computer screens
have now merged into the one technology.
The digital revolution means that the ever converging computer and television (and
radio for that matter) are coming together at a frenetic pace. We are all familiar
with set top boxes. Most people are unaware that these are just specially configured
PCs. Not many people realize that software similar to that inside a set top box is
available to run on your own PC at home or in the office. This saves you the monthly
charges for having a set top box.
Because of past poor performance and quality of early TV on PCs, many people are
skeptical whether the technology is yet good enough to be able to watch seriously
for any length of time on a computer. With the right software package and screen
this can now be done. Additionally, most PCs and software packages can send the television
channels to your normal television set.
Taking all these factors into account means that internet TV has come of age and
an increasing number of people are using it. One of the best software packages I
have found is satellite direct which you can access at www.live-tv-online .org. Through
their site you could be watching HD TV on your PC in the next few minutes.
