What are the best ways to watch TV from a laptop?

A
Dan Maynard

When it comes to our daily dose of entertainment, most of us don't rely on movies too much anymore. Remember when our parents used to tell us stories of how they begged our grandma to bring them to the theaters just to watch The Neverending Story? Before, people's media consumption mostly came from the theaters and not that much from television. But with the advent of technology, filmmakers were able to produce better content for us to consume, even for TV. Such contents are also available for streaming online and on-demand that anyone can watch on computers and mobile devices. Because of that, we get to enjoy shows such as Stranger Things, which let us feel how it's like to get hooked to the anthem of The Neverending Story. But how about other hit TV series, such as Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead? Is it possible to watch television on my laptop, or even desktop computers and mobile devices?

Well, you can. But, if you don't know how to watch TV on laptop through internet like Dan Maynard, don't fret because we got you covered! You can see on the list below the best website for watching TV shows that we also ranked against other sites. Topping our list is HBO, a site where you can binge-watch all eight seasons of the award-winning series Game of Thrones. Also, you can watch one of their original series Westworld, which first aired in 2016. We have also included other video-on-demand streaming platforms such as Hulu, Vudu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. As you can see, there are a lot of options to choose from. So whatever you pick, don't hesitate to upvote or downvote it!

    "I used to be one of those skeptics who didn't trust the internet, until my grandkids introduced me to ABC's online site after seeing me frustratingly waiting for my favorite TV shows to air. Needless to say, I'm a changed man. Who knew some younger kids would actually teach me something that I'd be able to use, right?"

    "shoot me for saying this, but online tv is better than cable tv. cable tv censors some parts of twd which i find impt to the shows development. whilst the net television version shows them without filters, gore and guts and all. guess im sticking to internet tv now instead of watching it on cable :D"

    "Netflix is probably the most popular site for watching tv shows, both original to them or not. It also has shows that you wont be able to see on cable tv which they call 'originals', and some of them are 100 times better than most of the shows you see on cable nowadays."

    "As always, HBO is the best when it comes to movies and TV shows. The fact that you can now watch their TV series, that you'd only normally watch on cable, online is a huge step forward and a good way to keep their consumers, including me, interested!"
