    Default How can I get BBC World or CNN or Fox News on my Smart TV?

    Hi Guys

    I have a Smart TV with Freeview Plus. But not Sky

    Although I sometimes like Al Jazeera, it does get a bit depressing at times, bombings and warfare every day.

    I would like to be able to watch BBC World, or CNN or Fox news.

    Is there any way I can get them on my tv ?

    Thanks

    If you know how to do it please just tell me.

    Or do you want to know what colour it is, if it has a black or silver bezel, or it has big speakers.

    If you search for those sites on YouTube you may get live feeds from them.

    Maybe the Raspberry Pi 3 and with Kodi could stream via HDMI. But it seems involved - need build it, adapt it, and add Media Center software (e.g. OpenELEC) to work it. "Possible" Tutorial here...


    E bay USA and Trademe are selling Raspberry Pi 3 kits, loaded with software.
