Did you know that you can get access to a lot of satellite channels for free without needing any special equipment and without subscribing to the satellite TV providers? This is 100% legal and there are many satellite channels that can be accessed for free if you have the right software or equipment. This article shows you what you need to do if you want to watch free digital satellite TV channels on your computer. We'll look at how you can use software that is available online to get access to satellite TV today!

1. Software to Access Satellite TV Channels

For you to access free satellite TV channels, you need to download and install some software on your computer. This software will allow you to use your computer as a TV. If you want to watch the satellite TV programmes on your normal home TV, then you'll need your pc to have the TV out connection. Otherwise, you won't need anything else. Look for software that does not require you to subscribe or pay any recurring charges in order to access the channels. This type of software is available online

2. What TV Channels are available?

The number of channels that you will be able to access will depend on the software that you choose. Some of the software will allow you to watch TV channels from many different parts of the world. Combining all these channels, you'll get access to hundreds or even thousands of channels for free. So before you choose any particular software read reviews and find out what people who have used the software before say about it. Don't make a mistake of getting software just because it's cheap or free. Some of the free software comes with a lot of viruses and spy ware and they are to be avoided at all costs. Ads and spy ware can be very annoying and if you're unlucky, they can even crash your computer. Look for something that has features that you like.

3. What Other Equipment do I need?

You do not need to purchase any additional hardware or TV cards. In fact, some of the software works with a 56k modem. Of course, you'll get a better viewing experience if you have broadband or high speed internet.

4. What version of windows works best?

Some software works with most of the available versions of windows. So if you have Windows 95, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows 98, XP or Vista, then you have nothing to worry about. You can check if your pc is compatible by going to or Google video and checking if you are able to view the online videos there. This is a quick test that you can do to check if your pc system is good enough.
