Live TV??

Live TV??

I just purchased the internet plus service with limited basic cable channels.  The woman on the phone, the website and now customer service over chat have assured me that I can watch the limited basic channels LIVE ONLINE.  Bare with me, as I try to be as specific as possible, because I had a hard time communicating this to customer support.  


I take limited basic channels to mean, what it means on my tiny limited cable box.  Network Television plus local programming. For example:

 

ABC

NBC

FOX

CBS

CW

UPN

PBS

...and maybe a few local channels.

 

The are the major network channels.  I cannot find where to watch them LIVE online. I don't want to watch ON DEMAND SHOWS produced by those networks. I want to watch the channel LIVE,whatever is playing at that exact moment in my service area, online.  I was told that I would be able to.

 

Can someone please verify this is the case? and tell me how it is done?  Thank you.

Re: Live TV??

Local network channels are not available streaming on the app or on a browser no matter what tier of service the subscriber has.
