TV From Around the World: On Your PC

Want to see first-hand reporting from Gaza? Al-Jazeera’s team was there before journalists were banned.

Want to watch English-language TV news from Pakistan, India, Iran, Russia, Korea?

Want to watch Hezbollah TV without your provider going to prison?

Want to watch special movie channels, documentary channels, and various specialty channels without paying for them?

A new application called LiveStation allows you to watch thousands of different channels on your PC for free, in very high quality. Stations are being added daily, and users are able to add any stations that offer public feeds. Stations added by users become available to all LiveStation users. A chat function is also available to interact with other viewers.

The download is fast and free, and the program doesn’t appear to be buggy or a memory hog. The video quality is very good, even in full-screen mode.

LiveStation has become my new addiction. I highly recommend downloading the program and giving it a try. It is available for PC, Mac, and Linux.

  1. You have to search for “Al Manar” to find the Hez channel.

    I’m watching it now. Am I a terrorist ™ ??

  2. Thanks for the link! I usually watch Russia Today and sometimes France 24 when I get the chance. I usually go right to the website to watch and lost my Al Jazeera channel which I subscribed to through VDC sometime ago when they went out of business. This lets me watch all of my favorites now! Great stuff!

  3. For higher definition, specially in full-screen mode, streaming is not enough, no matter your bandwith. What you need is to download the files to your hard drive first and watch them later. This requires of course some prevision or anticipation on your side: if you have subscribed to your favourite channels, your computer will be downloading the files along the day and they will be waiting for you when you are back home.

    You may want to give a try to Miro at it is a non-profit endeavour and it works just fine. To top this, it is a non-anglocentric project available in several dozen languages, transalated on a voluntary basis.

    A soon-to-come review by Eric, no doubt enthusiastic, would be much welcome by all Antiwar readers.
