After the introduction of self-isolation, a problem arose: there are several people in the family, and there is only one TV. It’s okay: a computer can also be turned into a TV and watch free TV channels on it.
Even those of us who haven’t watched TV are now forced to. What else to do during unexpected vacations and self-isolation at home? But if you have a large family, everyone may have their own priorities: someone needs news about the coronavirus, someone needs films, someone needs cartoons.
What to do? Watch TV channels on your computer, completely free. There are several services on which this can be done without problems. Of course, if your Internet connection is fast enough.
As with most Yandex services, everything is thought out to the smallest detail here. A huge list of channels is presented: entertainment, information, sports and those that you did not even know existed. A total of about 200 channels are available. True, many complain about the abundance of advertising, but this is the problem with all free services.
The tab with recommendations is very convenient. Given the sheer amount of versatile videos, it’s not easy to find what you like. And here the tab with the recommendations comes in handy.
Yandex has recently expanded the capabilities of Ether. Now you can find content from top bloggers there. Anyway, any user has a chance to get into this service with their videos – of course, if they are of high quality. And there, you see, and it will turn out to earn.
SPB TV Online
How else can you watch TV channels on your computer for free? For example, through the SPB TV Online service , one of the oldest domestic TV broadcasters. The site impresses with the vast selection of TV channels (more than 200 Russian and world) with a grouping by thematic headings.
The resource has a desktop version and a number of its own mobile applications for watching TV online. Mobile versions are available for Android, iOS, Windows Phone and even Blackberry platforms.
What is captivating about this service is its ease of use. Unlike the fancy Yandex.Ether, everything is simple here: squares with channels, extremely simple filters. Even an elderly person can figure it out. Next to the player window, you can display the channel’s program for today. In addition to TV channels, there are also a number of films. However, mostly classics like “Pulp Fiction”.
Peers TV is another nice looking service for watching TV on the network, which has its own player, dynamically updated TV program and an archive of programs.
The site provides the opportunity to watch TV for free, but a paid subscription is also available, which opens up a number of additional TV channels and the ability to watch movies like in an online cinema. Subscription also disables ads. For the pleasure of watching TV channels for free without banners and promo videos, they ask for only 99 rubles. per month.
Another feature of the site is the ability to maintain a personal archive of TV programs, adding them to favorites, where they are stored for a month. Separately, it is worth noting the option of downloading broadcasts to the device for offline viewing. This opportunity is free, but only for those channels that are open to everyone.
The site does not provide an opportunity to adjust the playback quality, but instead loads the broadcasts itself, if possible, in HD. In addition to the web version, the site exists in the form of applications for Android, iOS and different versions of Smart TV.
It is impossible not to mention the Glaz.TV service due to its exceptional popularity. The site offers the opportunity to watch a huge number of channels (over 440), automatically starting broadcasts in HD quality.
A distinctive feature of the site is the ability not only to watch TV online, but also listen to popular radio stations, as well as watch an extensive selection of webcams. For example, you can watch what is happening now in Hawaii or in a small American bar.
The interface of the service, of course, is heavily overloaded with minor inconveniences, but users forgive this for the vastness of the content. Animated banners and social media tracking icons do not add attractiveness either.
However, this is compensated by the fact that the view can be opened in a separate window and abstract from the site interface. The video player is implemented in different ways: some channels are played using HTML 5, others – in Flash.
The site is also available in the form of an Android mobile app. Broadcasting is free.
