Ted from NY asks:
Any suggestions for free Internet TV providers?
It is hard living in cash strapped times with the global economy going up and down like a yo-yo. Everyone is trying to rein in their spending habits a little and compromise on some of the luxuries in life. But rather than scrapping some of the finer and more reasonable home comforts, why not combine them into one easy and more manageable package? Internet TV is one of the newest things to really take the market place by storm, since it provides free programs on the internet. Here are five great options that may be worth considering, some better than others, but each one may suit individual tastes better than another. Take a look at them all to find out which is the best.
A mainstream and reliable brand, Joost has made its name by providing a vast and wide ranging selection of program options that all cable companies charge the earth for. A downside to the household name is that it relies on streaming, and as such the quality can vary depending on your broadband connections reliability and speed. Despite this, it is still an underrated provider of this service. Over time, it is slowly developing and growing into a better and higher class model of itself. Well worth a try out.
Anything endorsed by PC World cannot be at the bottom of the heap in terms of quality. With a regular and reliable array of program options, it is worth a look at to see if it would be a good choice in terms of value for money.
Hulu is a pioneer US provider that exudes quality and a great range of program choices. It is definitely one to consider, especially if a wide variety of global television is high on your list of priorities. With a high quality download rate and all sorts of shows, including The Simpsons, it is fully capable of entertaining the crowds all day. This is a must-try.
Fancast provides perhaps the highest quality of programming and stands up there with regular high-def cable providers. The main competition of Hulu, this provider is a newer version with fewer subscribers, but it’s also slightly slicker and easier to use, too. It features default settings to fit programs to your monitor, which is great for those who are less techno-minded.
Miro is the top of the tops. The crème de la crème. Simply the best. Available to the world, it is the best global internet TV provider without a shadow of doubt. It is a very accessible site which is easy to use, even for a first time streamer, and has swift downloading speed and excellent quality. Definitely worth your time.
