Satellite TV is fast replacing the typical home television setup. However with the required receiver equipment, people are wonder how to take advantage of this digital satellite technology. And I’m sure you are wondering how to watch satellite TV on your PC.
It only makes sense to transcend this technology to the PC. There are so many internet video outlets, but none compare to the HD quality that your get from your satellite TV receiver. You do have a few options that can show you how to watch shows on your PC.
The first option that allows you to watch satellite channelon your PC is a hardware device called a PCTV card. There are may brands and formats of satellite PCTV cards, many available at your local technology stores. Pick the TV card that is most compatible for your PC. I prefer the external satellite PCTV (or any TV card for that matter) because I use a laptop and there is no room to add a PCI or AGP satellite TV video card. Also beware that new PCI cards are not compatible with the older PCI slots.
If you have desktop PC, then by all means, if you have the space and you don’t mind fiddling around with your PC tower, purchase an internal satellite PCTV card.
The second option involves using a piece of PC (or MAC) satellite TV software. The options aren’t as plentiful as the hardware card, but if you are in no mood to spend hundreds of dollars on hardware and installation then the satellite TV software option is the way to go. Prices range from $50 and up for good quality software.
Once the software is installed then you are ready to start to watch satellite TV on your PC for free.
