Or you can go to the specific network sites and watch episodes. I'm sure there are tons of other ways to watch as well.

If you have Netflix, you can watch many TV shows and movies on your computer. They add to their instant queue all the time. :)

In fact, you can know watch them through your Wii console or Xbox on your actual TV. It rocks.

I enjoyed this feature too when I was visiting DS a couple of years ago :D:D:D

All I do is put the network in my search or url and go to their website. (Like www.abc.com ). They list all their episodes. Click on the one I want to watch. If I needed something on my computer I didn't have I downloaded it.

If you have an empty slot on your motherboard you could get a TV tuner card.
