Many television networks offer live television either on their own website or in partnership with other video streaming websites. It is legal to watch live television online, providing the stream is authorized by the company that owns the broadcasting copyright.
Television networks often provide live television coverage on their own sites for broadcasts that are in high demand. Among these broadcasts are breaking news coverage and sporting events. These live streams can be found by accessing the company's main website and looking for links such as "Watch Now" or "Live Stream." Some companies partner with streaming video websites such as YouTube to offer live coverage of events, and these can also be found on the company's main website.
