Forget FilmOn: here’s how to watch live TV from around the world for free

Do you remember when FilmOn used to be free? You could watch hours and hours of free TV on your mobile and desktop device. Now, all you get is an annoying two-minute limit that cuts the stream off.

I get it, servers must be expensive, especially with over 500 channels live 24/7. FilmOn is pushing users to get one of their premium subscriptions that go from $15 dollars a month all the way to $150 with DVR options in the middle.

I used to watch BBC News on FilmOn for free but with the new time limit, I had to turn to other methods. By that, I mean turning ArkVPN on while I watch the official BBC News app on my iPad.

The downside to that is ArkVPN offers a few minutes for free. Sure, you can open the app every day and collect your free minutes, save them for a few days, and watch the news in half-hour daily installments.

But how about a website that streams the BBC’s news channel? Most of them use FilmOn as a feed. Not LiveNewsUS, as it streams through Janjua.tv.

Watch live TV on your mobile device or computer

Just head to this link and tap the play button twice, as it reloads after the first time. Now, sit back and relax. LiveNewsUS also offers feeds to BBC One, Two, Parliament, and Arabic, as well as American and European channels.

I’ve found that, while BBC News works without a blip, the feed on LiveNewsUS can be down from time to time. Nevertheless, this is a good option to have on hand when you want to watch live TV from the UK and the world wherever you are.
