17+ free broadband internet TV channels to watch online

The way people are watching TV, it's slowly getting changed. From old analog TV box to latest flat/slim screens, this transition in hardware and features is a clear sign of change,'change' in how people are watching Television channels.

With the advent of high speed Internet connectivity, massive online streaming of audio/video has come into existence. One can't deny the fact that it's wired world now. Busiest capitalistic life is almost impossible to imagine without this constant connectivity. People are so busy that they don't have time to watch TV and listen to news. I also had felt that many times and wished TV were right on the screen where I was typing some documents and surfing nets. That is no more a dream, it's now reality.

I used to watch TV on my computer but only after installing TV card. I had this one old TV card from PixelView which I thought was cool enough to watch TV and work at the same time when I was in Nepal. Now, when I watch broadband TV channels on my widescreen Laptop, I remember of me going through all the hassles of installing TV Card, configuring drivers for it and seeking manufacturer's forums for help on minor issues.

Further, I came to know about FTA(free-to-air) channels here. It's free TV channels aired just like Free FM stations are aired in normal cases. With a proper receiver, one can have as many channel as he/she wishes without ever paying for monthly subscription fee. But definitely if one wants to have selection of multitude channels, there is a paid scheme. Whatever, I think these free broadband Internet TV channels are based on the same concept or may be some even might broadcast the unencrypted channels which are supposed to be paid one.

I'm featuring some of the coolest FREE BROADBAND TV channels available online. And, most importantly I'm bragging about my choice of FREE BROADBAND TV CHANNEL called TVU player. I bet this one has served my purpose. I've managed to make a small video(below) of how TVU looks and feels.
Note: The TV channels shown in this video is of inferior quality which is not a true experience in real. It happened, because I had to compress this video at 15 FPs(frame per second) and hence the TV channel shown in this video is so jerky
