Explore your options for On Demand and live TV streaming.
Visit a streaming Web site to browse its catalogue and watch TV online. Selection will vary by site, and there may be a fee for the purchase or rent of the title you’re interested in. When you stream TV online this way, you’ll view your show in the browser, so performance can be affected by your computer’s processing power and your Internet speed – also true of IPTV.
Subscription services are popular among “cord cutters,” those who stream TV exclusively and don’t have a cable, satellite, or IPTV subscription for TV. Through Internet streaming services, you can likely get access to many On Demand titles – but not necessarily access to live TV streaming. Internet TV services may not carry the most current shows, or may carry partial seasons.
Streaming apps encompass free streaming by TV networks; paid monthly subscription services; and services through which cable customers watch live TV after signing in with a provider. The major advantage of a streaming app is that you can stream TV shows using a mobile device. Whether or not you can watch live TV depends on the service powering the app.
Streaming live TV on mobile devices is possible. You may have access through your cable or IPTV provider. If a streaming app prompts you, log in with your account information to stream TV on a computer or mobile device. In most cases, access through a provider will offer the largest selection of On Demand and streaming live TV titles.
Many people enjoy being able to stream TV online via a computer or mobile device. Besides the On Demand nature of Internet TV, streaming entertainment is highly portable, and allows users to watch their shows when they wouldn’t be able to watch live TV – while traveling, for example. Several low-cost service options make streaming TV shows an economical choice for many.
Many services don’t include live TV streaming access; the inability to watch live TV is a significant limitation. While some networks allow users to watch TV online, selection is often restricted to recent episodes, with an availability delay after airing. Some services restrict which mobile devices can access content, and don’t allow rewinding or fast-forwarding. If you often watch live TV, you may not want to watch TV online exclusively.
