Old(er) tv shows on pc

Ok Ok,, I'm way behind the times. I've built our own pc's for several years, mainly to play heavy games that average pc's would not. Anyway,, I just found a site, (never really looked before) that has complete series of "older" tv shows,,, my favorite, The A-Team...Among others. I can watch them just like when I was glued to the tv back then. I used to have every episode on VHS, but,,, that along with Miami Vice, Mash,, etc... Anybody else watch older tv shows on the pc ?
I do have the capability of running an HDMI cord from pc to tv, but then the DW would complain... So for now, I use head phones and watch on pc from time to time. And yes, his/hers pc's are in the living room... That's how I met her,,, on pc... Anybody else watch older shows ??

I found one called retrovision.tv it has multiple genres and a lot of older movies and tv programs, many from the 30's and 40's.

If you watch on the PC itself no need for anything special cable wise.

If you want to stream to the television itself there are several ways including some "Boxes" that hook to the TV, they can use either A/V or HDMI depending on the box and TV.

You can also get "Video Presenter" type boxes that go from the VGA jack on your computer to either A/V in on TV or HDMI or RF or some combination of those.

IF you want to download and watch shows on your PC or with you PC please bring your own bandwidth, DO NOT hog the park's less you do it at like 3am (I do it at 3am) when nobody else is using it.

We have a cable station called The Hub that the wife and I watch a lot.
Last week, we watched The Dick Van Dyke show! in B&W!
It was the episode about Laura snooping in Rob's mail, when the rubber boat comes and inflates in the living room? I haven't laughed so hard in months!

How big is an episode? I have a limit, and I'm always within a 1/2 gig or less.

No worries mate !! We don't download anything big when away from home. We have cable at home for that, but I appreciate your concern. I was speaking from home. Thanks for the info !

Gosh, what was I thinking...
Watch TV. Watch Movies. | Online | Free | Hulu

I do this at home all the time and feed it through the HDMI to the TV. Remember that a lot of the "networks" have at least 5 full episodes up too. It takes about 7-10 days from the airing for it to be posted. But if you find that life has kept you from watching a favorite show... you can get back up to speed fairly quickly.
