Get your TV fix for (almost) free


Cut the Cable Bill - PC World

Long time no see, I know. That’s what a dose of Florida sunshine will do to you.

Anyway, PC World just posted a decent article on the many choices out there for getting national-network TV content for free. Hulu has always been a perennial favorite, but did you know that YouTube is also starting to host a select variety of shows (including MythBusters)? One can also connect directly to the major networks’ websites, but this often has more location restrictions – BBC is available only to those in the UK. More exotic options include desktop apps like XBMC and Boxee. Those not afraid of spending some cash might look at an Apple TV (ahhh, Apple!) or even running out and buying that entire season of a show on DVD.

Last but not least, I would like to shamelessly plug the option of torrenting your TV content. ‘Nuff said.
