If you want to watch TV and movies from your computer, this is the list for you. I have divided the Free TV sites into two sections. The first section lists sites that are large popular sites that are completely legal (minus Joox that seems to have every movie under the sun in streaming DivX quality!). The second section lists Free TV sites that are in the grey area as they provide links to blockbuster movies, as well as television episodes, and other national network television.
Free TV and Movie Sites
Joox.net is pretty awesome! All movies are sent via DivX and show fantastic. Watch one of my favorite movies, AntiTrust! Or how about taking a trip back in time to watch one of the movies that made Angelina Jolie famous, Hackers! Or if you’re in the need for a laugh, why not watch Jackass 2! Want to watch a movie that is still in theatres, then check out The Simpsons Movie!

Navigate with a keyboard and mouse or use a PC remote control. VeohTV is like a free DVR for web video. Watch video on-demand or record it to your hard drive to watch later.
Grey Area Television and Movies
While all the links above are relatively legal, the ones below have links to questionable content that actually provides television shows and movies that would be considered illegal in most books.
- TV Video
- TV Links
- Free Movies Cinema
- Your TV Links
- My Easy TV
Of course one of the best ways you can watch TV on the Internet, like HBO, ESPN, and CNN is to download software that allows you to do this. You can get Satellite TV for PC, Elite Edition here. It’s by far the best software I have found, and will save you a lot of headaches.
There is also a program available at TV Show Downloads that lets you specify exactly what you want to download (Movies, TV, Music, Games, etc.) and download it extremely fast! They even have filters that will ensure you do not get any spyware on your machine. Instructional videos are also available here, which makes it VERY easy to use the software. Check them out here.
