Watching satellite TV on your PC delivered through the Direct TV Internet is the holy grail of entertainment today. As we step further into 2015 the hype has started and it seems that everywhere you look someone is trying to sell you something to make the dream come true. What exactly do these products do I ask? I’ve never tried one because I’m not convinced that I would be getting value for money. As far as I’m aware they don’t give you anything that you can’t find freely available elsewhere on the net. I’ve been getting quite interested in the possibilities presented by video over the Internet lately so I’ve done a little research and come to some fascinating conclusions.
You won’t find the same prime time programming on the Internet, as you get on satellite TV, not legally anyway, unless you pay for packages like HULU. If you think about it why would the networks give you something for free when they can charge you money for it through subscriptions and pay per view on satellite TV and cable TV? It just isn’t going to happen. You don’t need to spend anything to watch what’s freely availableI can’t be certain about what I’m about to say because I’ve never bought one of the software products that claim to give you 3000 (or whatever) channels of Internet TV but, I believe that all they do is package what is freely available and make it a little easier for you to get going and find what you are looking for.
It’s inevitable that the Internet will eventually take over as the main entertainment focus in your life. It’s happening already with recent studies showing that a large and growing proportion of the population now spend more of their leisure time on the Internet than they do watching satellite TV, cable TV or terrestrial TV.
