How does the FCC regulate Internet television?
It doesn't. The FCC does not regulate the internet because information on the internet is owned; when you create any type of data and place it on the Internet you are placing it on hard drive space - which is owned by whomever owns the computer itself, therefore it's private property and the only regulation it's subject to is that of federal law and nothing else.
The FCC was created by federal law 47 USC §151 to regulate wire and radio mediums for interstate and world-wide communications. The FCC has treated the "net" as some mysterious "wholly new medium for human communications" and not the broadcasting and private exchanges of communications in the wire medium the "net"has always been. This wholly ignorant SCOTUS mistake was the Reno v ACLU (96-511) error and done before WiFi radio became pervasive.
The block-quoted belief is perhaps why the FCC felt they could get away with malfeasance in not regulating communications via the common carrier of networked wires and ignoring federal criminal statutes 18 U.S.C. §§(1462, 1464, 2511).
No court has even read much of the communications act of 1934. The FCC will be required to regulate internet wire television and everything else on the ""net exactly they way they try to monitor radio TV. This is a clear generational issue. If you grew up without computers, cell phones, and porn-er-net, explains the rediculous errors of the senior citizen judges. it is hard to apply law to technology you have absolutely no formative life experiences with. When people who are around 45 now make up Congress and 100% of the Supreme Court the porn-er-net is over. The porn-er-net will be banned by the rest of the world long, long before this.

Here's what you'll need. A source for TV programming. Jacked into a "TV card" in a computer (to convert the video w/audio into a digital format that can be treated as a …data stream), and a high speed link to some ISP's server that will be fast enough to handle the data stream. And the real trick is the server connection. The streaming of video programming onto the web requires an ISP that will "tolerate" the (continuous) high data load. The user will have to have a subscription to an ISP that will support the desired activity. And the person on the other end will need similar connectivity. The answer is designed for one-to-one program transmission. Hit the www and talk to some compter types for more information. Certainly, there's WikiAnswers. If someone wants a web site that allows for a number of users to connect, a different set of rules apply. Tons of computer power and connectivity will be required and laws will come into play. Perhaps more questions on the boards will be required. Read the article on streaming media posted by our friends at Wikipedia, where knowledge is free. It's a great place to start. A link is provided. Good luck.
First things first... there are 100s if not 1000s of 3rd party free (freeware) and paid (shareware) Internet TV software (or whatever name applies) out there. Ask yourself wha…t type of channels and shows do you really want to watch - favorite sports, sitcoms/episodes, uncensored TV, movies, etc. If you know already what you want, then search the Internet for PC satellite tv, internet tv, or some other search term. Read reviews to find all the popular Internet TV software services and compare them. Stay away from freeware because they don't offer real value and perks. You want the complete package such as tech support, software upgrades, channel updates, and bonuses. It's easy to recommend a software without knowing where your interest lie and not knowing your computer OS - but that would be a mistake. Sometimes a top leading brand isn't the answer, and keep in mind that any Internet TV software whether freeware or shareware can experience a rare crash on your computer. Therefore, be sure to find an Internet TV software service that uses Clickbank, Plimus, PayPal, or some other highly reputable payment processor that offers an iron-clad money back guarantee.

As I understand it, if you're getting your internet connection through the cable company, most likely the basic cable service is part of the package. Otherwis…e, if you're using a different internet provider (for instance, I get mine from my phone company) then you of course, don't have to subscribe to cable. Do some research and check out your options. Also ask others what they can tell you and by doing that you'll probably gain a wider perspective on what's available.
Today all major networks make their shows available online. You can go directly to CBS.com, ABC.com, NBC.com, cwtv.com, Fox.com, MTV.com, VH1.com, ESPN.com, abcfamily.com... I…nstead of going to each site individually, you can also try sites like hulu.com, fancast.com or reewatch.com, which bring content from multiple sites together in one place. Source(s):CBS.com ABC.com Fox.com MTV.com VH1.com ESPN.com NBC.com cwtv.com hulu.com fancast.com reewatch.com Netflix is also a major distributer of TV shows and movies, but doesn't get new ones right away. You can either get movies in the mail, or stream from your laptop, Xbox 360(With Xbox Live), or select LG Blu-Ray players. You can also watch TV shows online on Megavideo, but it's most likely not legal, and there's a 72-minute watching limit anyway.
yes it can. anything with an operating system (in the case of a google tv, the android operating system) is susceptible to spyware, malware, viruses and other forms of attacks….
There is no one governing body that regulates the Internet. The Internet is considered a 'self-regulating' body, meaning Internet Service Providers are given the respons…ibility of monitoring and regulating content. The FCC, however, keeps an eye over ISPs to ensure they're doing their job correctly.
If you can get a signal for your satellite Internet service, then without a doubt, you can also get a signal for satellite TV service AND the other way around also. The one t…hing you must know is that a no matter what anyone tells you, having both services will require two separate satellite dishes. The same provider that supplies you with Internet service can't provide TV, and vice versa. For satellite Internet, you'll need to use HughesNet, WildBlue, Starband, or Skyway USA, and for satellite TV, you'll need to use DIRECTV or Dish Network. That's why you'll need two separate dishes.
