Connecting a PC to a TV allows you to watch television channels on your PC in real time. You can also record your favourite programs and save them to the computer's hard drive, where they will be available whenever you want to watch them, and you can play home videos and computer games using your TV screen as a monitor. Hooking up your PC to your TV wirelessly allows you to be free of annoying connection cables that limit how far apart your TV and PC can be. Now, they can even be in separate areas of the house.
