HDMI lead - computer to TV set

I've signed up for the BT infinity package which (as we all know) is limited to one TV set.  A friend has suggested that I could link my computer to the TV set via a HDMI cable and watch   . . . .  watch what?  I would be able to see the contents of my computer screen on my TV set but how would I be able to watch TV programmes via the computer, via the HDMI lead?

Ask your friend!

 

You would be able to watch catch up TV such as BBC iPlayer and some TV companies do stream live TV on the Internet but it is not a replacement for your "normal" TV.

As a BT Broadband customer you would be entitled to free access to BT Sport from the internet. Windows 8 has an included app which streams lots of channels but I haven't bothered to check how many of them are available free to air direct to a telly.
