The tablet has become a very versatile tool to do practically everything. We can play, work with it … as some experts say: if it exists, there is an application that does that on a tablet.
Television is not an exception and although many times when we watch TV we do it with a tablet in hand , we can also watch our favorite channels and programs from it . How? In Technology from you to you we explain it to you.
Watching TV on the tablet is it legal?
One of the first questions that can come to mind is whether this type of service is legal. Within the television broadcast on the Internet, we must distinguish two major channels.
On the one hand we have the reproduction of private payment channels such as football matches. These emissions are illegal, since they are paid for by vision. With these applications that we see today you can not do that.
Then there are the open channels that in addition to broadcasting the content by DTT do so through the internet . By being open, we can reproduce it without having to worry. It is completely legal and we will enjoy the same signal quality as on TV.
