Due to various TV licensing laws the answer to your question will depend on where you live and what TV program you wish to watch online. For me; a person who lives in the UK, to watch TV on demand I would either use BBC iPlayer, ITV player , 4oD or SKY player. Off course there are also a host of other streaming sites that show content on TV but these go against licensing laws and are therefore illegal.

The other alternative, which is useful if you have no/slow internet connection speeds is to buy a TV tuner and install it on your computer/laptop. Most TV tuners will give you a range of digital channels and have the added benefit of having a recording option. If you want more helpful advice you should state which country you live in.

Windows has the Windows Media Center, which has 'Internet TV' - including various shows from several channels as well as short clips.
There's also sites like HULU, and the various TV station's websites themselves - many of which have the most recent 2-3 episodes or more on the site for streaming. That said, I believe HULU and several if not all of the TV channel websites are region locked - so it depends on where you live on if you can access them. If you're in the U.S. you're good, not sure about elsewhere.
Don't forget, the edit and search buttons are your friend!

Well since this is more or less already explained it doesn't really need to be kept open now. Unless the poster who made this thread says otherwise, I would suggest that you register and PM either a Sempai or FTV Member.

Why might I ask this? It's because I've seen a lot of guest postings that end up being nothing more than being SPAMy as of late in this part of the forums.
