watching basic TV stations on a computer
Just noticed there's a home theater section here, so maybe someone would be able to help me out with this.
My home theater is completely PC based. I have speakers, monitor, and a projector all hooked up to my computer, which is where I have all of my media. I do not have any regular televisions, or anything that would accept a coax connection. This is fine as I never watch regular tv.
That changed though, as now there's a show on ABC that I like watching... Yet the only way to watch it is for me to buy the show from itunes the day after it aires.
I just got to thinking - if ABC is a free channel to watch anyways, are there any ways for me to somehow stream that through my PC in real time? If so, how is the quality? (I have a fast computer and fast internet connection, so those shouldn't have much lag, but I don't know how well the feed would be, if what I'm describing even exists!)
