Where we live, cable, television, internet, house phone and cell phone all come with pretty steep price tags, no matter how much we try to limit our plan, or packages, or “deals” it always seems to be too high.
Television is our highest price drain. And we confess, until there’s a quality reliable resource to get what we want for less, we’re not ready to give it up. But things are changing.
Watching television programming on the computer has been available for some time and is becoming more of a viable alternative via sites like Hulu.com; and now you can view replays of broadcasts directly from the networks own online websites as well. Sites like Netflix offer members an inventory of movies and pre-recorded TV series’ that can be watched on computer. All of that goes a long way toward fulfilling any television fan’s needs.
But what if you don’t want to sit at the computer longer than you already do? What if you want to watch live TV, as opposed to a program that’s already aired? And what if you want to watch either pre-recorded shows, movies, or live programs right on your actual television set?
Now there are easy ways to view live television on your PC or Mac computer, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Windows 4-g cell phones, and use those devices to also watch live TV, right on your television.
In today’s tech world, where you’re already paying for services like internet and paying extra for wireless ability on mobile devices like iPads and 4-g cell phones, why not use those resources to their fullest extent and get every dime’s worth? We’re featuring here videos that mention some free or very inexpensive apps. and programs which do not require the purchase of additional hardware (like slingbox, for example) other than the cords needed to connect your mobile device or your computer to your TV set. The cords can run from $10 to around $50. Check on Amazon.com or Ebay.com and you may find better prices than in electronics stores.
We regret to say that we haven’t had a chance to try these out ourselves yet, so we cannot provide first-hand knowledge, personal reviews or endorsements… but we’d love to hear back of your experiences!
