Thanks to so called web TV aggregators now we have convenient online access to thousands real TV channels such as NBC, ABC, ESPN, BBC1 and many more, organized in categories and in some cases even ranked by users, and all completely free. These directory like websites that do nothing more then collect and organize free to access channels from tv networks, started to get quite popular. And since what’s popular belongs here I selected some of the major ones and briefly compared them below
Note: To stream most of the channels without any lag you’ll need in my opinion at least 500kbps connection speed, which shouldn’t be a problem for most of European and US folks.
|Channel Directory||Number Of Channels||Language||free?||Full Screen Mode||My Rating|
|700||English, Dutch and Hindi||5|
