    Since TV signals can't travel from the US to the US (or vice-versa) because of the distance, the curvature of the Earth and the laws of physics, the nly way it can be done is to stream the show over some website. So it's your choice - US/UK with a web site or no web site but only local TV.

    What country are you in?
    The best app i know of to watch live UK tv in the UK is "Tv Catchup". It plays within the app but it recently got pretty bad and the website is much better. Because of the BBC, you wont be able to use it outside the UK.
    Lmao Rukbat i dont think he wanted to plug an aerial into the usb port mate :D

    If you want to watch US tv outside of the US, same for UK tv outside of the UK, you'll have to use a VPN service that gives you an IP address in those countries. Any apps that are supposed to stream TV channels from outside of their respective countries are very likely illegal, and can't be discussed here.

    I'd plug my Hauppague TV-USB device into my phone to see what it would do, but the local cable service seems to send some kind of black magic over the cable to their boxes. Plugging a regular TV set into the cable gives us a blank screen.
