Watching local cable channels online

Is it possible to log in and watch local cable channels from my PC?

I'd like to see the highlights of a local high school game but can't find it in the "watch online" section.

Re: Watching local cable channels online

Sorry, no.

 

You would need additional hardware, connect either a video capture card to the PC and a full cable box.  Some area's with the local channels and PEG's in clearQAM would tune in on a clearQAM TV tuner connected to a PC.

 

Another choice would be to purchase a SlingBox, connect it to your cable box and stream to your PC.
