Watch online TV

For many of us, living outside the US or the UK, watching online TV is kind of boring. Simply because getting links to TV channels is such a big task without Hulu or iPlayer. Fortunately SopCast Player is a video player which will allow you to watch online/internet TV with absolute ease. The program has an inbuilt list of channels, and even allows you to add extra/custom channels.

As the official site describes it, SopCast Player is designed to be an easy to use Linux GUI front-end for the p2p streaming technology developed by SopCast. SopCast Player features an integrated video player, a channel guide, and bookmarks. Once SopCast Player is installed it simply "just works" with no required configuration.

The download link is here but I suggest that you follow the instructions given on the wiki page (worked perfectly for me).

Here's a screenshot of SopCast:

Give it a try.
