This article describes the possibilities of PC TV, which simply means to watch TV on the PC using PC TV programs. Have you encountered a situation like the following before? Great the next match of my favorite sports team will not be shown on free TV. Actually it will not be shown at all in your country, except if you are lucky enough to have a satellite connection available of course. If you encounter situations like this one and always thought there would be no other solution than to watch boring live tickers on internet sites, then you may be interested in finding out more about programs that bring television live streams to your computer.

I will describe three freeware programs that let you connect to channels that stream TV and especially live sports events. This includes all major European football (soccer) leagues, champions league, uefa cup, espn, wrestling, national team matches, boxing matches aso.

You also find regular TV stations like MTV and custom stations like gamers TV there. On with the PC TV programs.

All you need to watch TV on your PC is an operating system  with the latest windows media player and / or real player. A broadband connection is recommended for best results. All three PC TV programs to watch TV on the PC have been produced in Asia making it hard to read the websites. Those websites offer TV program lists among other information.

First, let us take a look at some options in media player and real player:

Start the media player, make sure you use the latest version. Right-Click and select Options from the menu. Click on Performance and Change the Buffer Size of Content to 30 seconds.

In real player you select Tools -> Preferences and click on the General -> Playback Settings. The setting Buffer up to 30 seconds is at the bottom of this window.

Stream formats:

mms:// and .asx open with windows media player
rtsp:// and .rm / .ram open with real player

Starting Streams manually:

Sometimes you need to start streams manually. Use the stream formats information to figure out the program to use.

On windows media player choose File -> Open Url or the shortcut ctrl + u
On real player choose File -> Open

PC TV Programs

This is a list of free PC TV programs that can be used to view TV on PC.

Download from the above link, unzip, start. This will run the installer on your system, note that it contains an adware offer that you need to uncheck by selecting custom installation from the available options. The program displays a number of tabs at the top. First thing you may want to do is click on Option > Language to switch the interface language to English as other languages are not that optimized right now.

A click on Live Channels displays the available channel list. A click on a channel here opens it in an adjacent window to the current one.  While you can browse the channels individually to find TV stations that you are interested in, it makes more sense to use a scheduling service that acts as a TV guide, and especially so if you are looking for a specific match or show you are interested in. Check out our list of options at the end of the article.

Note that you may sometimes see ads when the channel is loading. These sometimes tell you that a plugin is missing but that is just the ad telling you that and not really the case. So, do not click on those options as they are not telling the truth.


pplive tv over pear to pear networks live football soccer sports

Just download and run the installation script on pplive. Its all in English, no need to worry. You need the pplive channel list for it, it does not come with a loaded list.

Please also note that the website is in Chinese, and that you may need a translation tool to find the download option on the site. I suggest you use Google Chrome for that if the browser is installed on your system, or Google Translate if it is not. To download the program, visit this page directly which lists the available download options for various operating systems and devices including Windows.

I highly suggest you click on the English download link here as you'd otherwise end up with a Chinese interface. Please note that the program is fully in Chinese even if you download the English version. You can however browse the available contents and the thumbnails may help you find the contents you are looking for.

pplive tv


ppstream tv over pear to pear networks live football soccer sports

Download from the above location. This one has an installation script that is unfortunately producing lots of gibberish. The buttons are designed like in every other windows installation script. (left button, choose a directory, 3x middle button). The Channel list is on the left, you see the channel name, the quality of the stream in Kb per second and the users connected to the channel.

If I had to choose one of them I'd definitely choose Sopcast right now as it is the only program that is offering an English user interface.

Popular PC TV Channels:

channel content language
CCTV5 european soccer, other sport events. Asian ?
ESPN All major us leagues, european soccer + more English
Games Tv (ppstream) professional game play, tournaments, mags Asian ?
Soccer Demo soccer Asian ?
Sport Italia Italian Sports Channel Italians

Live Sports Streaming

Check out our list of sports streaming portals on the Internet that you can use to watch the latest sports matches in your browser or in a one of the programs listed above. The sites list the latest matches and live streaming opportunities so that you can watch them on your PC directly.

Using PC TV programs on your computer has never been easier than in today's Internet. Users can pick a wide variety of applications that bring TV streams to their computer for free.

    Great post. It’s actually unbelievable how many people nowadays think that you can’t watch TV on your PC.

    I’ve been watching TV on my PC since 2006 probably, and without having to pay any monthly bills, plus getting over 3000 channels, I definitely can’t complaint about anything.

    the best TV for your PC website would have to be http://www.onlinetvportal.com

    they also give you another software package as part of the deal with a huge amount of movies and songs.

    check it out. best $15 i ever spent and canceled cable shortly after!

  38. Dish TV PC said on September 22, 2008 at 2:42 am

    There seems to be a ton of software out there to watch satellite tv from your PC. But many people would like to know which one has the most channels, or the best channels for them. Dish TV PC.

  48. Ben said on April 20, 2008 at 2:25 pm

    I like watching StarSports on Sopcast because Sopcast is very reliable and StarSports commentary is english. That’s my recommendation. They show live boxing, rugby, football and more so do check that channel/software combination out.

  49. lucas said on March 22, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    It will be great if I had it.

  50. kelly said on March 21, 2008 at 1:14 am

    I have no problem with the language. I just turn down the volume. As long as i can check out the Pittsburgh Steeler games,im fine.

  51. Jack said on March 20, 2008 at 12:42 pm

    Maybe you should go back to your own country if you want a different language.

  52. kelly said on March 2, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The only negative about sopcast is the sports channels sometimes come in chinese language and the channel pauses to much.

  53. kelly said on February 27, 2008 at 12:08 am

    Sopcast has worked the best for me when it comes to watching sports. im a die hard Steelers fan and pretty much watched the entire season on there.

  54. tom said on January 28, 2008 at 2:34 am

    if you want to watch live sports for free then go to this web site http://www.myp2p.eu/index.php?part=home

    it has a step buy step guide to use all the programs like sopcast, pps, ppmate, tv ants, tvu, usee, etc..

    it also has an online guide to what time all sports are airing, nba, ncaa, nhl. football, nfl, tennis etc…

    hope this helps

  55. jason said on January 18, 2008 at 7:43 am

    I used pplive, watched some starcraft games online but got sick of the very poor quality, no buffereing, but it was only playing 1 frame per second, might be typical of SC replays….but I think I’ll stick to torrents.

    Hmmm…i tried installing pplive 1.9.5, but it didnt go too far since my AV detected a virus. http://tinypic.com/ixbo8m.jpg

    Looks like all the channels on PPstream are broacast in Chinese.So there’s no point of installing the chinese language pack and even using this program since we don’t understand a word of what they say.
    just mention this to those who bother to have a try of Ppstrem.

  122. Martin said on December 20, 2005 at 6:33 pm

    8. ESPN on Sopcast is english for instance
    9. you are right, the chinese language pack only displays the menu entries in correct chinese letters but does not translate them to english. see 8 for english channel

    you can use google translate to view the websites translated. (enought to figure out whats going on)

  123. greasebag said on December 20, 2005 at 6:08 pm

    I tried all 3. Don’t expect to watch anything in English from the default settings. If there is a way to find Ameican tv, that would be cool, but I wasn’t able to find any. You’ll need to have “Chinese” installed in Windows. (When I installed pplive, Windows asked for my XP installation cd and it installed the Chinese language pack automatically) But that will only give you true Chinese characters, it won’t help you read anything in English, so forget about changing any program settings, cuz you won’t be able to read the menus. The exception is Sopcast. I WAS able to install this in English and read all the menus. Looks like that one will allow you to stream media somehow, but I didn’t get into it before writing this. The technology is cool. Streaming is pretty good most of the time. Picture quality is OK. Not great. Not great at all at full screen. What about rebroadcasting laws and all that? If anyone know where/how to get streams in English, please post it.

    are there any sites that english commentators? all i seem to find are channels that are in chinese

  125. doa'er said on December 20, 2005 at 5:47 pm

    can someone please explain to me how i use a chinese language pack to view the text in the programs in english?

    i have installed several of the programs but cant understand what any of them are saying because they are in chinese!

  126. Carlos said on December 20, 2005 at 5:45 pm

    Or just use winamp’s media library to watch hundreds of streams

  127. Martin said on December 20, 2005 at 4:01 pm

    Steve: You need to install a chinese language pack from the microsoft site

    Which program are you trying to install ?

  128. Steve C. said on December 20, 2005 at 3:36 pm

    Can someone write this in a format that makes sense?
    I’m a computer tech and still can’t make heads or tails
    out of any of this!

  129. nouhad said on December 20, 2005 at 9:54 am

    ive blogged this and linked your website, if you dont mind. :)

  130. Martin said on December 20, 2005 at 9:30 am

    static thanks for the information, I think I probably need to install a chinese language set which is available from microsoft for them to display correctly.

    A tip would be to run a translator on the site like I did with the pplive link. (for websites only of course)

  131. static said on December 20, 2005 at 9:25 am

    well, the gibberish is because your average american computer cant read chinese script
    although some i can read most r just gibberish. if u download “north star” you will be able to read it in real chinese( for the chinese viewers out there)
