This can be done without any costly hardware and there is no need for expensive adapters, literally anyone can do this by installing some software. A few companies have now developed software packages that enable your PC or laptop to view many thousands of entertainment channels from all over the world, in effect turning your computer into a satellite TV!
The brilliant thing is the cost - you can normally find fully featured packages for less than $50!
The companies who produce this software have taken the time to set up a dedicated 'server farm' that can receive all of your favorite programs, converts them into a digital format and makes the media streams available over the net, which means wherever you live, you should be able to receive crystal clear programs over the internet without the need for any expensive adaptors.
Unlike other TV services it is not a subscription based system, that is you don't have to pay every month to get the service. You invest only one time and that is for the software. Keep distance from any company that's asking for monthly fees.
There are certain things you'd like to check up before selecting your brand of software, things like whether the software will run on the version of Windows you have, whether it will be accessible from your country etc. Though most of the software works with almost all the versions of windows and can be used from anywhere in the world where there is an Internet connection.
