What is Digital TV for PC and does it really work is a question I see a lot online. Both are excellent questions that deserve honest answers so people can be educated about the product and determine if it meets their needs.
Digital TV for PC is a software application that was developed over 7 years ago to create a user friendly program to access legally thousands of television channels broadcasted online so users can watch on their computer with no monthly fees.
As technology advances and bandwidth becomes cheaper such as DSL, Cable and Fiber people are now able to have very high speed Internet access into their homes for a fraction of the cost several years ago. This opens up the doors to being able to do so much online such as watch full motion video over the Internet.
Many broadcast companies and independent channels see the opportunities of broadcasting live channels online resulting in a new wave of entertainment available to people with Internet access. Today there are thousands of television channels online from major networks to local public channels. Being able to search the Internet and find all these channels would consume a huge amount of time and frankly just be a big pain in the butt.
This is where Satellite PC services really help. These services categorize television channels by country. You can also do a search if you know the channel you are looking for. This is very helpful and makes locating channels a breeze.
You may be thinking this all sounds great but does it really work? Yes it does but don't expect HD quality. I see many advertisements comparing Digital TV for PC services to regular cable TV. I personally am not going to give up my DirecTV quite yet but it really works well to catch a sporting event or show that your local cable company does not carry.
I personally use Digital TV for PC services to watch breaking news and soccer games while at work. No I am not watching TV all day but I do like to watch during lunch or breaks to catch local news or sports highlights off ESPN. It will work great for this summer's 2008 Olympics.
So to answer your question yes it works. You really do get access to around 3500 channels. Is the quality as good as HD - no but many channels are very close. If you are looking for a way to catch sporting events, TV shows and news online then I would say this product is for you. If you are looking to replace your current satellite or cable provider this is not the way to go. The bottom line is for just $49 you get access to thousands of television channels and never have to pay any additional fees ever making it an excellent product for many.
I hope you found this article informative and helped clear the confusion about Digital TV for PC services.
