How to Watch TV Online With My Laptop

Updated April 17, 2017

If you have a connection to the Internet, you can watch episodes of your favourite TV shows directly on your computer, using only a web browser. Many websites offer libraries of television shows and movies to watch for free with limited advertisements. Using your laptop can allow you to connect and watch TV from just about anywhere, as long as there is an Internet connection.

Visit a popular TV show streaming website. Use credible resources when watching and streaming media online to protect your personal information. Some popular television networks now allow the viewing of their shows online for free, in case you missed an old episode or in case you're on the go.

Look through genres and categories that interest you and use the website's search bar if they have one available. Search for the TV show you are looking to watch.

Choose and select the show you want to watch and click on it to see if there are any further instructions required regarding using the website.

Watch the TV show on your laptop by pressing "Play" on the video player. If it is not working, you may need additional plugins to run your video and sound software.

Tip

Update your sound and video card drivers if any issues occur when playing the media.
