We declare independence from the tyranny of television schedules! No longer will we risk tickets, rushing home from work! No longer will we refuse spontaneous get-togethers with friends! No longer will we worry about missing our favorite shows! They will be available whenever and wherever we want them! We will watch TV online!
Wow, the view from this soapbox is great. But let me come down and level with you. There are tons of TV shows available online and on-demand. That doesn’t mean you’ll find every show imaginable. But the selection keeps growing. So, grab a computer and watch on your schedule.
Hulu Desktop – Hulu is the premier destination for TV online. You’ll find dozens of popular shows. These include The Daily Show, Family Guy, House, The Simpsons and Dancing with the Stars. Some are limited to a handful of recent episodes. But others, like Stargate SG-1, offer every episode ever made. This program lets you access Hulu from your desktop.
Boxee – Not all online content comes from a single source. In fact, most of it is spread all over the place. Most networks post shows on their own sites. There are also shows that you can only find online. Boxee pulls this all this content to your desktop. Its slick interface looks great and can be controlled via remote.
