Step 3: Legal Method Number 3. From the Source

Here is yet another way to watch tv shows legally. You can get them directly from the network.
ABC Full Episode Player
NBC Video Rewind
CBS Innertube
With ABC you need a plugin to watch the content.
Getting the show directly from the network can be pretty good but you will face more ads.

Step 4: Legal Method Number 4. Joost

Joost is a program that streams media legally from many sources. They have a lot of content with good quality. Joost had many different "channels" that you subscribe too. I subscribe the "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" channel along with "Top Gear" (The best car show ever?). A cool feature about Joost is the ability to chat with friends about a show while you are both watching it. Now you can both can watch the new episode of CSI and talk about it even if you live in different Countries.

Hi other LEGAL methods would be to download the "readontv" player software which gives you well over 3000 channels direct to your PC free, live from al around the world. This piece of software is COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE. True doing some GOOGLE SEARCHES for "readontv player" to find out where to download it from.

Also, for people who live within the United Kingdom, like myself, another good way to watch many live FREE TV CHANNELS ONLINE is to watch Freeview TV from a website called "tv catchup.com" You have to register your e-mail and create a password for this site, BUT this is all TOTALLY FREE, and watching CHANNELS here is TOTALLY FREE also.

There is yet ANOTHER FREE PC TV PLAYER I found recently which you need to DOWNLOAD YOURSELF FIRST FOR FREE. This is called. "mytvpal player", but once installed ALSO enables you to watch PC TV ONLINE completely free.

I hope I've helped some people out there who weren't too sure how to watch multi-channels via there PC totally for FREE? :)

Here's the thing, there is not way to actually watch all of the shows you want unless you do it illegally. I know most people won't actually want to do it illegally so the best ways to actually get tons of shows and channels is to buy something. Sorry but its true. I have a program on my computer that gets like 3000 channels and it's very cheap for a one time fee. Check it out.

To watch US TV legally outside the US the only solution I can find is

www.mytv2me.com

Reason it is legal is because you have your own TV subscription which you are accessing remotely using a hosted slingbox

Are you put off by the cost of cable or satellite tv? Now you can just pay49.5$,a one-time fee less than one month of your monthly cable bill, and watch your favorite TV shows all your time. It’s a big save ,no need to have statellite dish ,receiver or any other equipments ,all you need is a computer and an internet connection . Here you can check out more in this site

I did not read the other replies but Winamp offers a video/tv streamer. It shows movies and cartoons like family guy. There is also porn on there for those who are inclined.
