Watch Your Favorite TV Shows and TV Channels for Free

Want to watch your favorite television shows when your schedule doesn't coincide with the TV guide?

All of that can change when you watch all of your favorite TV shows and TV channels online for free.

Many of these websites offer global news, music videos, comedy channels, current TV shows and older TV shows that are nearly impossible to find.


You can use Winamp to watch Shoutcast TV. Although Winamp is one of the most popular media players in the world, most people do not realize that their media player offers free streaming television and movies. When you open Winamp, click your media library, than click Shoutcast TV.

Now you're ready to pick a favorite television show or movie to watch online for free! Some of the most popular TV streams found on Shoutcast TV via your Winamp Media Player are: Family Guy, Seinfeld, House, American Dad, Friends, the Simpsons, and Stargate Atlantis.

Crafty TV

Watch streaming television online for free by selection a specific genre, country, or television station.

Watch CNN, BBC News, CBC News, the Comedy Channel, Weather Channel, Cartoons, the Fashion Guide, and so much more all for free online. Crafty TV offers high-quality streaming video updated regularly. No sign-up required and viewers can filter channels by genre or country.

Channel Chooser

Similar to Crafty TV, Channel Chooser has a good selection TV channels that allows viewers to watch their favorite TV channels online for free.

Some of the most popular channels that are offered include: ESPN, Discovery Channel, Horror TV, ESPN China, BBC News Live 24 hours, Fashion TV Swimwear, and Adventure Free TV. There's no sign-up required to watch free television, just "click, push and play."

America Free TV

Although this isn't one of the most appealing sites that offer free television online, I've included it because it offers movie classics and old television shows.

America Free TV does not enable users to search for movies, instead they choose the classic films, which are updated regularly. Nevertheless, viewers are able to select different channels which are dedicated to different genres of older movies and television shows.

In between watching your favorite TV channels and television shows, you may feel like watching the hottest movies online from time to time. You can learn How to Watch Movies Online for Free and catch up on the newest movie releases with all of your favorite actors and actresses.

Note: Each website listed claims that they are 100% legal. I am no affiliated with any of the websites listed, although I have reviewed each of them and find them to be exceptional.
