Re: Streaming TV directly to PC

In the upper right hand corner of this screen you will see EMAIL VOICE TV MYACCOUNT

Click on TV

Click on either TV Listings or On Demand

In listings, if you click on a movie or a series it will open up and you will see Buttons for Watch on TV and for Watch Online.  If you click Watch Online it should start streaming to your computer.

Not all movies and series are set up to watch Online so its sort of a trial and error sort of thing.
