HOW does a person stream?

New Poster

HOW does a person stream?

I would like to know how to stream TV content to my computer. I would like to have all the same chanels I watch on my TV on the computer– is this even possible? I did see a web page with a few streaming networks (NBC sports, CNN, etc) but surely this is not all that is available?

 

Or do I need to run a coax to the computer and get a third party USB device? I understant the premium chanels might be handled differently, but how do I watch, say, NFL playoffs? or the Olympics? Or local news? or MSNBC? or anything else?

 

Is this even possible?

Comcast has maybe 20ish channels you can watch on your computer like the ones you mentioned

this will stream tv episodes in your web browser (over the internet) from Comcast web site

the following Cable Card  devices use the Cable Tv channels you subscribe to and replace or act as additional tv cable boxes that connect to & display on a PC, including any premium channels you subscribe to.
