Yes you can ...usually for this you have to use internet explorer as browser cause most of the plug-ins that works with the on line tv streaming are working just with this browser..
all you have to do is to make a search on the google with the words..On line tv ..and choose a site that streams your channels..or at least some that you need or understand...(there are packets for most countries) after that you will have to download and install all plug-in that the site requires ..and that is almost all...restart ..go to the site ..and click on the channel you want to see..and wait for the streaming to get to at least 90% to assure a good quality ....
I will link such a site for a few American channels..
http://tv-online-channels.com/online-tv/United-States-tv-channels/America-One_159.html
they do not work all ..but a few of them work ..and I just linked the first i found just to make you an idea..but on a google search you will find endless sites like this ...and in the end you will stop to one that suits your needs and its accessible ...anyway ..remember that some of them will not work with windows media player and you will need either soup-cast ...or vlc to receive them ..

    I almost forgot...if you have a cable..and you just want to receive your channels and not to buy a tv for that ..just look for a usb tv tuner and it will do the job like a tv ..

You can watch TV on your laptop, but you need to purchase an USB TV tuner and plug it into the laptop's USB port plus install the TV tuner software.
There are several manufacturers that make these USB TV tuners, I suggest you do a Google search for these devices for the best deals.

I have a JVC LT 32 EX 18 TV. When connecting my laptop over HDMI, playing on a playstation or WII the sound and picture work perfectly. When I want to watch normal TV over cable though the problems start...


If the rear inputs work consider connection for the channels with a box using one of the rear inputs--sounds like a tuner related issue and going to the rear inputs bypasses that.

Can i use laptop to watch tv


Hi, Yes you can buy a small device that is a TV Tuner Card which avarage around $50 more or less and some cards even have a recording ability that would be a little expensive, once you install the card and software, hook up your antenna (if none on the card) and follow the instructions to watch TV... Though if you have high speed internet you can also watch TV on the net, there are thousands of channels and you will find many links to softwares you buy to watch these channels, but the best is a free web site http://wwitv.com/portal.htm
Best of Luck

Hello - i am watching netflix on my laptop but wondered if i could use the s_video port to send the flix to the television?


I'd use the VGA port to hook it up to a monitor. If you have an S Video input on your TV, then it's possible in some way or another. You can't get audio through the cable though.

Connecting Laptop to TV


you get yourself a s-video lead..plug one end in pc and other in tv....
on pc f-keys look for the one with a "square" icon on it.(usually f4)
press the fn key and the f4 key together(at once) to switch form pc screen to tv..
make sure youve selected av on tv..you should have an av channel assigned to s-video if not you can assign one in menu settings.
on my tv I have 3 scarts 2 video i/o one front one back and a s-video..video i/o can also be used for audio though there are separate audio outputs.I also have mine linked upto a 10 ft projector screen via infra red so able to watch tv/sky or pc on projector in different room

Watch laptop movies on TV?


What you would need is a VGA to RCA converter cable. Something like this. Once hooked up, use your Fn key combination to switch the view from the internal monitor on the laptop to the external monitor, now your TV.

No audio on Aver tv usb 2.0 analogue, M026.


If it worked before you updated the driver, so a system restore to the day before you downloaded the driver. That will set things back to the way they were before the driver update.
