Watch TV (Discovery, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central etc...) using Raspberry Pi?

Found 21st May 2014
Hi, recently bought a raspberry pi.

I have been briefly looking on the interwebz about xbmc which is fine for all my own files but then I came across "Playon":

playon.tv/playon

I was ready to purchase it at one point but then I read the reviews on cnet.

download.cnet.com/Pla…tml

It has all the channels I used to watch years ago on Sky like Cartoon Network, Discovery etc.

Is there an alternative i.e. free or cheaper that does the same which I would be able to use with a RPi?

Thanks.

The Playon service mentions "magically stream your favorite shows, movies, even your personal media files from your PC to your TV" but how do they do it?

Do they have licensing set up or something?

Yeah that's the point they where making in the advertisement video.

I downloaded the software and you need to login to almost every single channel so somehow I don't see how its worth it lol
