This could be useful for those wanting to find programmes in other languages (although many channels seem to be from India or China, there are plenty of English-language ones) and why not, maybe even some World Cup matches not shown in Spain …
A word of advice – you don’t have to download the player to watch online, but you will need Internet Explorer or Firefox for Windows, or Safari / Firefox for Mac.
About the TVU networks service
What is TVU?
TVU Networks offers a free global live TV service that you can watch on your Windows PC or Mac over a broadband Internet connection. This service is dedicated to bringing you TV that you can’t get from cable or satellite, such as news and sports from around the world.
How does TVU work?
TVU uses real-time packet replication, which is very much like P2P file sharing, except that the video is brought to you in real time. Every additional viewer watching a channel helps make the network stronger and helps improve the signal of all the other viewers watching the same channel.
Is TVU free?
Yes, TVU is 100% free. If anyone has sold you this service, we suggest you demand a refund.
Is TVU safe?
TVU is 100% safe. TVU doesn’t write any data to your hard disk, other than the TVUPlayer itself and a few necessary configuration files. This makes it almost impossible for virus, worms, and the like to spread via our service.

“Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station.”
