Beyond TV is a freeware application that claims to allow you to watch live TV on your Windows-based PC. The software was initially released in 2021 as a powerful personal video station. Like many similar programs and gadgets like TiVo and Sky+ HD, the program has a large 10-foot wide user interface for the large living-room television. This is achieved through a rather simple means: you simply need to install a special desktop wallpaper using a software CD image. The background then acts as a "virtual display" for the TV, and you can then use it as your personalized background while watching your favorite TV shows or movies.
The program also lets you record live events as they happen in your home, as well as places that you visit. You can even manage several TV shows or movies at once by placing them side-by-side or over top of each other in your preferred position. In addition, Beyond TV allows you to watch your favorite TV shows or movies from various internet services like Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft Video with the simple click of your mouse.
Beyond TV also features a feature that many may find quite useful - the ability to store all of your shows and movies in your hard drive. While it's true that this isn't particularly useful for watching live TV, it's certainly nice for storing recordings that you may wish to watch at a later time. For example, many people like watching their favorite shows whenever they can, but may not always have access to the TV themselves. By using the Windows-based Beyond TV software, you can let your family know when you have time to catch up on what they've been missing. Beyond TV is truly a wonderful product, which gives you the option of recording your own shows and movies, as well as letting you keep track of recordings made by others in your home.
