View Streamed TV


Hi,
I am doing some research that would allow me to create a media centre PC that would get Streamed Channels from (I dont know were to get them help is needed (MYP2P is one but can't get it to work properley)) and show it on my Television. the I have an 8Mb/s ADSL Connection. No HD Quality need for now.

Any help?
Don't wish for other packages with payment from cable companies etc.

Zattoo streams channels, it's also free. Depending on your location you may or maynot get all available streams. I don't know how you would get it to stream to your tv and they have a player of their own.

Also search for "free internet tv" or "free streaming tv" with google. There are many sites that give links to streams, it all depends on what quality do you need.

The script to watch Tv Online is now much much better. It is totally embedded into a powerful theming under fvwm. Enjoy watching TV ONLINE: there is bloomberg, asx videos, wwtv, and lot of channels. It is interesting apparently for some users according to their interested feedbacks.

The config /program is here:

All the best!
