    What Software do I need to watch TV (through cable) on my laptop


    Hello All! I've recently updated to Windows 10 x64 on a Toshiba Satellite A665-11T laptop. It features a TV Tuner Card and I was using Windows Media Center to watch TV. Now with WMC no longer available on Win10, what software should I use? I have found various posts about WMC alternatives, but I don't understand how to use any of them and when I watch tutorials they keep making me install tons of add-ons to the respective software in order to work. With WMC I was just plugging my TV Cable Antenna into my laptop and just click on Live TV and it started playing. I just only want to watch the TV programs I am paying for to my TV provider. My TV Tuner Card driver is up to date.

    Unfortunately, all of the third party media centers are going to be a bit piecemeal. That's because none of them implement everything themselves..

    Also, you will generally only be able to access non-encrypted stations, because most third party media centers don't have cablecard support, and if they do, they won't support any media that's "protected".
