Several online sites allow live viewing of Ethiopian television via streaming, including Ethiopian.tv and Addislive.com. Both of these sites also allows viewers to select catch-up programs and choose their own viewing, though they offer a different range of programs.
Sites with live streaming for free tend to offer only one channel, which is streamed at relatively low quality. However, this means that the stream is more reliable, and other catch-up services are available on many of the sites that allow users to customize their viewing experiences.
For users who are prepared to pay for additional live programming, sites such as Allcomtv.com offer subscription packages that let users choose which channels they would like to obtain for their main televisions for a fixed monthly payment. Allcom.tv also carries a free streaming news service to let people from Ethiopia stay up to date with news from the country.
For people interested in Ethiopian TV programming overall, including historical programming and current events, Ethiopian.tv offers a wider range of resources than simple streaming. It features a large array of archive programs for all interests, including quizzes, comedies, documentaries, music and dramas, with 203 pages of programs to select from as of March 2015.
