Many TV viewers who can afford to buy streaming media devices, game consoles with Internet access, modern computers, tablets, HDTVs or smart TVs have the advantage compare those who cant afford it. There are many people worldwide, for whatever reason, searching for free PC TV Software to watch television online. They shy away from low-cost, pay-to-use TV software.
Many of these freebie TV software users live outside the United States. They want what they want. Even if you make them aware of low-cost software, most wont buy in. Why? Its hard to figure but the same thing can be said when making them aware that PcTv software, or any software for that matter, isnt the best option.
There are some 3rd party web-based TV/VOD services out there that are low-cost and offer some of the best content to watch online. And yet, these freebie users dont buy in. They want what they want which is freeware. The problem with freeware are many. Many of those downloads are only compatible to old Windows computers. The content delivered from freeware isnt that entertaining if at all.
Mac and Linux computer users are left behind for the most part. PC TV software downloads are not compatible to most devices with web browsers. And even if you do find a good piece of TV software to download, still the content delivered isnt that entertaining.
Many of those 3rd party TV software downloads come without support or very little. What comes with these free downloads could end up harming the computer, with viruses and malware on the rise. Computer users must be extremely careful what they are downloading to their computers. Good security software must be installed beforehand to protect a computer from being destroyed.
There are many individuals, living outside the US, still using Windows XP operating system and very old computers with dial-up or very slow Internet connections. Some dont have card credits or money to make a small purchase for something better. This may be the reason why freeware downloads are still popular today and can be found online easily.
As a product reviewer, I showed these individuals the differences and even proof to some extent. They were shown how to watch Live TV, Local TV, Global TV, Sports TV, VOD TV Shows, and VOD Movies. Access to entertaining live and on-demand streaming content at their fingertips. Still, they dont buy in, even when the price is $30 per year or $40 one-time fee.
The only free download TV on pc software that can be upgraded to the Plus version is PlayOn Plus. However, its only compatible to Windows operating systems only. PlayOn is software that can be downloaded to a Windows computer. It brings together both free streaming content and subscription-based content providers to one place. But to use the full record and cast features, you have upgrade to the Plus. Still, this might not be the best option for every country outside the US.
Nevertheless, the issue seems to be individuals using old computers/operating systems, inadequate Internet connection speed, no credit card or money, and whatever else you want to throw in there. There are other well know freeware out there which shouldnt be hard to find online. Just search Google for free tv software, tv on pc software, watch TV online free. Or any search term with free, TV, PC included.
To find TV freeware compatible to many devices and operating systems with entertaining content to watch online, may be impossible. But then again, what isnt entertaining to some people may be entertaining enough for others. If the individual can invest in a low cost television software for Windows, PlayOn would be the one to review. Or download the Readon Free TV and Radio Player.
The other freebie option is web-based TV/VOD sites such as YouTube, Crackle, and others, without downloading any free TV software that could be harmful to the computer.
