The name of the TV on Your PC: watchtvonyourpc.net
The rip off -
You can only watch the TV stations they provide, which if you wanted to do so
you could do by going to the web site of your choice and download the TV and use
any media player installed on your computer!
I am going to travel soon and decided that it would be nice to keep up with
the NASA space program while on the road. Some hotels and motels don't have all
the TV stations, just what they provide but a lot of them now provide wireless or
Wi-Fi for free.

I did a search and found three programs that said 'Watch TV on your
PC!' and over 2000 channels! Yup they were right in those two respects.
The program I am writing about is a scam. They only provide free TV channels.
They 'say' you can add your own channels by entering the url of the channel
It does not work. After a week of back and forth with 'Tech support' about
one channel BBC in the UK I decided I wanted my money back.
Not only they would not refund my money they blocked my request from Pay Pal
to receive my $14.95 back.
So don't waste your money on the watchtvonyourpc.net.
Throw away your
satellite and cable subscription service! And your money!
How I rate this service:
I give TV
on Your Computer a rating of 0 (ZERO!).
All the channels they advertise are free. None of the channels provide any
Prime Time programming. Most of the channels are either local government
channels of the 25 I checked it was just a logo of the channel.

After emailing the company's tech support for a week (no telephone number) - having to wait at over
24 hours for a response (two were over 48 hours) and trying to determine what
the person was trying to tell me I asked for a refund. No response.
To get a refund I lodged a complaint against the company through Pay Pal.
They blocked my refund by escalating the complaint to my credit card company. I

Update 03/02/20 - Large cable networks such as FOX, NBC, and a few
others offer a "go" services such as FoxSportsgo.com or NBCSNgo.com Both of
these services are in conjunction with a cable provider such as DISH, DirecTV,
or other cable subscription service.
However their ads (on tv or web page) are erroneous they say: "Watch
anywhere on any device!" Sorry Charley Not TRUE! Only in the USA and only
some programming in Canada. I travel to the UK every 2 years or so, I would like
to keep up NASCAR and IMSA racing: NOT Available OUTSIDE THE USA!
