Online TV on your PC for free
One of the best ways to watch both paid and free TV channels on Android is the application called You TV Player.

Well, this app that's a true hit on phones and tablets can also be used on our PC desktop by simply downloading this software.
This application grants us access to thousands of online TV channels allowing us to tune into live broadcasts from our PC's desktop. The latter are sorted according to the contents offered, being able to find general channels but also thematic stations: news, sports, movies, series, kids...
