Watch free streaming TV from the networks

First of all, you can often find a lot of your favourite tv shows online at the official network website. Check this list for your favourite network, maybe your tv show is actually available on their site (Usually it will not be).


They won't always have the most recent episodes available, and they might block you from watching them if you don't live in the United States. If you are getting blocked, see my how to unblock anything article. Plus they might not have the older episodes available if you want to watch the show from the beginning.

Tv-Links websites are usually kept up-to-date with user contributions, and user votes let others know which links work best. These sites allow users to provide links to the steaming videos uploaded to legitimate big business websites such as YouTube, Megavideo, Veoh, Google Video, etc. The problem is that when these videos get posted, they are often removed quickly, or are just hard to find. Tv links websites basically create a directory of links organized by tv-show, pointing to videos all over the web.

These are the best links sites out there currently, they generally function very well with working links, without malicious code or adult content:

Option 1: Project free TV
Option 2: Tv-Links

Be cautious with free online tv-links websites

Offering links to free streaming TV is an obvious legal grey area, and shady characters are naturally drawn to grey places. So if you're not careful you may end up clicking on ads that bring you to sites with malicious code, trojan horses, malware, etc. Videos are often hosted on sites with lots of ads and pop up ads and there are some things you need to keep in mind before you start watching these videos.

1.You do not need that plugin, no matter how big or realistic the pop-up ad is. Do not download it. (it's an ad, possibly malware, adware, a trojan, etc)

2. You do not need that plugin, even if the video player says you need it.

3. If you do accidentally download something, don't open it - just delete it.

4. When beginning the videos, you will often be required to click on a "play now" link. This often makes a pop-up ad open - just close it, then click play again if needed.

5. Install a good antivirus program, such as Norton, McAfee, AVG (free), Kaspersky, etc before watching free streaming tv.

Final thoughts about watching online free streaming TV

You might ask yourselves, "Why don't all the tv networks just let me watch all of the episodes online whenever I want? I don't care if there are commercials." The reason you can't watch free online streaming videos from the networks whenever you want is because they want to make as much money off of you as possible, at as little cost as possible. They are big big business, and you are just a tiny digital statistic to them.

The way of the future is no doubt to bring in as much choice as possible to the consumer, to watch videos whenever they want, however they want. The flow of TV is already moving from rigid broadcast schedules to watch-as-you-want. Especially on the internet. TV networks are beginning to put their tv shows online for all to stream for free whenever they want. But not quick enough, and not all of it, and not for everyone.

The TV industry is old fashioned, but it is moving forward, very slowly, like a dinosaur in the tar pit, it can either evolve little speedy legs to escape and join the rest of the fast moving digital age, or it can die in the tar pit. I wouldn't really care either way.
