The idea of watching TV on your computer is an enticing one, and has been made possible with the current development in internet technology. There are a wide variety of applications available that bring internet tv to your computer without having to pay a dime, and one such program is iTVmediaPlayer.
iTVmediaPlayer, originally called ITV Catch Up, is a free web-based application that provides free TV service (legally) through your computer and can even connect to your regular TV set. It is an open platform that provides access to over 200,000 TV channels through dozens of different TV service providers (live TV and on-demand); including premium channels in entertainment, cartoons, sports, news, educational, and movie genres. It also provides live radio, gaming, weather, news, built-in Internet browser, free music on-demand, and live video chatting — all in one single platform! Some are calling it “the computer version to the Sony® PS3® platform; for the TV industry.” Others call it “the upgraded, free Google TV® for computers”.
Programmes are available for 30 days on the site after being first shown on ITV. Some programmes, imports and movies are not currently available due to rights issues, and children’s programming in particular is generally unavailable. Anyway, it’s still worth a try and you will be surprised of how many great tv shows you can watch on the internet for free totally legally.
