How to Access American TV Shows in Germany
First, decide what American TV shows you'd like to watch.
Next, determine what stations broadcast these TV shows. If you like "Grey's Anatomy," for instance, you will need to know it is on ABC. You can also check sites like Wikipedia.com, imdb.com (Internet Movie Database) and tvguide.com to find out the networks for shows.
After determining which station these shows are on, you can go to the station's website and watch back episodes. Most stations carry five or so back episodes from each current season.
If the network website does not have the episodes you want, check out www.hulu.com. Hulu may not have a complete series, but what it does offer is free. You can also try iTunes and Amazon, which for a fee allow downloads of complete seasons or series.
Watching TV shows on websites that "hack" the shows, or stream them illegally, is not advised. You risk infecting your computer with spyware or viruses, not to mention running afoul of the law.
