TV from internet, free

At this moment there are a lot of TV channels available from internet. Quality of the picture varies from weak to tolerable. Among them there are also several really good ones. You get the best picture quality when you connect the computer to a conventional (CRT) TV. Then you are close to VHS quality. A good way to do it is to connect computers S-VHS to televisions same connector. Scart adapters are available for S-VHS.
