Watching local cable channels online

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.
