Take a look through your program guide and there is probably at least one channel you've never watched/heard of. You're not alone.
I was excited to find out new programs were coming to Investigation Discovery and when I shared the news with some other TV Squadders, people said, "Huh? That's a channel?" Yes it is and I love it.
Did you know there's a whole channel just for babies? Of course. Check out the rest of the channels that we weren't too familiar with.
That number actually sounds about right to me, although I would say my range is more like 20 channels. I've listed my Top 15 below, in order of most-watched... what are your top channels?
Reader Rod wrote to us recently asking for a comprehensive list of all the television programs that can be downloaded or streamed online. That's a pretty tall order, and I'm sure I'll forget a few, which is why I'm asking our faithful readers to fill in any gaps left due to my ignorance or plain forgetfulness. I'm going to focus purely on legitimate downloads and not such things as peer-to-peer downloads or torrents. I'm not going to list specific shows, because obviously as the television schedule changes, so do the programs.
I encourage you to add this post to your Favorites, as I'll be updating it every now and then.

Our fearless editor Keith hepped us to a site he found via Digg that claims to offer free online feeds of over 150 channels. That's true, sort of. First of all the site seems to be running intermittently, so you may be able to see something and you might not. Second of all, some of the content, such as Comedy Central, MTV, and VH1, is simply a link to those networks' free broadband content. It also appears that many of the channels aren't the American versions. In other words, it's probably not as cool as it sounds, and even then the question is whether or not you'll be able to see the programs. Some of the comments on Digg suggest that, despite the free content, the video quality is rather weak, anyway. So feel free to check it out, but that other video device in your home called a "television" has content on it all the time, and there's very little load time.
The cost is about $625/month or $7,500 a year.
