Eastenders is on, the match is about to start. What do you do? If you don’t want to start a fight about the remote and are concerned about harmony in the house, there is another option. Your Laptop PC can be used to watch live TV and there are two ways to do this.

Online streaming of live TV is the first possibility, you can use TV Catchup to watch most Freeview channels on line. The streams are usually good, but buffering at crucial moments can get annoying which is why we’d recommend using a USB TV Tuner.

USB TV tuners plug into your desktop or Laptops USB port and work just like a Freeview box, connect an indoor aerial, or plug them in to your rooftop socket and you can watch, record and timeshift live TV.

The DVB-T205 and DVB-T202 are both standard definition Freeview tuners that work on all versions of Windows. If you are looking for a HD tuner, then the DVB-T210 is the way to go, this PC TV Stick gives fantastic resolution and is a great way to enjoy the game in peace. For Apple Mac computers, the DVB-T208 gives you the ability to watch on an iMac when your living room TV is in use.
