I recently installed PlayOn.tv on my Windows 10 Pro laptop and love it. It allows you to watch live TV on your laptop in HD. Best of all, it's FREE!
One of the coolest features is that it can also function as a DVR on your PC (you can even record most Netflix movies in standard .mp4 format for playback on most devices). So if you know you're going to be flying and want to watch a game or movie you missed, now you can ... even in HD!
PlayOn also enables users to access and organize many online video streaming sites, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, Comedy Central, ESPN, MLB, and a lot more (over 100 in total). It has a ton of features!
Best of all, the streaming version is free and the DVR option is just a one-time charge of $39.99 (lifetime). Check out this great Windows Plug-in here! As always, The GoTo Tech Guru is here to help with installation and configuration.
