If you don't have cable and don't want to mess with antennas, consider watching your favorite television shows using your Internet service provider and a browser. You can watch current network programming for free. Other websites require you to pay fees to download shows to your computer -- or you can simply view them, usually with some commercials, at no charge. You'll be able to watch news, movies and all the hottest TV shows with a few clicks of your mouse.

Make sure you have a high-speed Internet connection such as broadband or DSL (digital subscriber line). Dial-up won't work well for streaming videos.

Go to CBSNews.com to view news programs. Here you can watch the evening news along with other CBS shows such as "48 Hours," "The Early Show," "60 Minutes" and "Face the Nation."

Visit TNT.tv. Here you can view episodes of "The Closer," "Falling Skies," "Southland" and "Bones." The site also has full-length movies available to watch, although choices are limited.

Go to the Live Footy website, where you can view all your favorite sports. You can watch your favorite football, soccer and basketball games for free.
