The easiest way to watch live television shows on the Internet is to visit the official website on which the show airs. The channel may offer live streaming of the show for viewers who do not have access to it on television.
While some shows might be available live on the Internet, it is safe to say that the majority of channels do not offer live streaming of their television programs. Sport events, such as college basketball games or car races, can sometimes be seen live. Other times, viewers may be able to watch their favorite programs on the Internet on a delay, which may be 24 hours or more. Occasionally, some shows offer a pay option. This allows viewers to watch the show online and usually gives them a behind-the-scenes peek at things like cut scenes, outtakes, interviews with cast and crew or athletes in the case of sporting events.
There are, of course, certain websites that claim viewers can watch any show online for free. Users should keep in mind, however, that such sites may not be safe to view. There may be malware or adware that can infect a computer, so these sites should be used with caution.
