Burn a DVD: Subscribers can easily use our Download library files to create their own DVDs. The image library makes it easy to create slick menus and a professional look. To learn more about how to burn a DVD - click here.|
Watch it on TV: There are many ways to watch LikeTelevision on the traditional TV set. The best method is based on the new set top boxes that combine a wireless home network with hook-ups to tv sets in multiple rooms. (watch this story from an Intel video press release which features LikeTelevision as a killer app). You can also use the MPEG download library to create your own DVDs and play the disks on a traditional DVD player. Or hook up your computer to the tv, using a SVGA card with video outs and the audio outs from your sound card. But like we said - the best way is using the new set top boxes and a wireless network. Watch this video featuring one of our subscribers who shows you how it's done.

- Broadband - You'll want a broadband connection to fully take advantage of LikeTelevision's Video Library. Some examples of a broadband Internet connection include: Cable Modems, DSL, Satellite, T-1 and Wireless. Our site will work fine with dial-up connections (28k or 56k), however the downloads will take longer to retrieve, and the quality of the streams will not be as high.
- Computer Power - Intel Pentium III, AMD Athlon, Apple G4 or better processor. Newer Intel, AMD and Apple G4 computers are optimized for broadband applications. A high speed video card with up-to-date video drivers is also recommended.
- RealPlayer 8 or Real ONE - Our downloads are MPEG-1 files, playable in RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, or Apple QuickTime. LikeTelevision's Streaming Video Library is encoded for RealPlayer. RealPlayer is available for Windows, Apple, Linux and other UNIX platforms.
If your computer meets the above requirements,
the video will play smoothly without any hesitations.
