Watch Indian TV Shows Online on YouTube [Official]

I’m one of those people who love to do most of the things online, that includes paying my bills, watch indian TV shows and, Watch movies and so on. I have a Airtel Digital TV connection, but honestly I hardly spend 1-2 hr in a week on T.V. I’m not sure if it’s a good habit that all my digital entertainment needs shifted to Internet (YouTube, Hulu, Letmewatchthis) kind of channel, from earlier traditional Cable Tv and now Digital TV. Anyhow, I’m sure all of you, who works online, like to do most of the thing online and here is good news for Indian users who stay in india & even for those who stays outside India (NRI), now you can watch Indian Tv shows online on YouTube.

I’m not talking about those pirated or unauthorized upload, but an official shows page from YouTube, where you can find over 19,000 full episodes of Indian TV shows. Interesting fact is, this shows are not only limited to Hindi shows, but you can watch different Indian Tv shows in other languages (Tamil, Telugu, Bengali,Gujrati & Punjabi).

Some of the famous Indian TV serials like (Balika Vadhu, Bade Acche lagte ho, Ramayan, CID), you can watch complete episode online. Though, most of these episodes were already there but by the individual channel created by respective broadcaster, such as MTV, Colors, SEtIndia and so on.

Links to Watch Indian TV Shows Online on Youtube:

For your reference, I’m also adding links to Individual channels on Youtube, from Sony and other popular publishers, which you can subscribe to and get notification, as soon as they upload latest TV episodes.

Here is direct link to shows page, where you can find listing of all Indian serials and you can watch Indian TV shows by streaming them on Youtube.

For watching shows in regional languages, head over to this page and find your favorite show. Well, it seems like a great initiative but it will be more fun, when we can actually stream all the TV shows at the same time when it goes live on traditional TV. May be, many people like me and who stays online, might not mind paying little subscription fees for the same.

Anyhow, with the evolution of Youtube and online streaming media in last few years in India, I don’t think it will take time before we see Youtube offering subscription based channel for Indian Television. In case, if you are planning to watch CID online, or Balika vadhu online, don’t forget to upgrade your broadband plan to a higher bandwidth package, as only dilemma for Indian broadband users is FUP. (Fair usage policy).

Do let us know, if you like this idea of putting all Indian TV shows on one page (Similar as Indian movies page on Youtube). Will you be shifting to Youtube from traditional TV or will stick to it?

Not such a favorite among Arab dictators but really a News channel worth watching. Plainly speaking it’s a very hard hitting form of Journalism coming directly from Middle East covering global issues. You can watch Al Jazeera’s live news stream on your desktop either with either the LiveStation app or you can also view the channel’s live feed by visiting their website.

RT

Basically it’s an international broadcast that is partially funded by Russian government, it offers documentaries and latest news from around the world. This particular live news stream is tagged as a bit blatant as compared to the other Live channels available. So If you are looking to find a place where you can get the news from an entirely different perspective then RT Live news stream is the right place to tune-in.

C-SPAN

C-SPAN is by far one of the best news channel for political junkies having an inkling for the latest happenings around the globe. The live streaming link of C-SPAN provides viewers an upto-date coverage of the latest news covering things like latest from Washington DC and power lobbies.

This collection of 500 movies includes regional and bollywood movies. Though I expect them to add Hollywood movies too in this service. Airtel should also consider adding more packages into this service. An yearly package would be nice.

How to Watch TV Online Using VLC Media Player

VLC media player is one of the most famous open source media players. Did you know that you can use VLC media player as a television and watch tv channels on it? In this post I will show you how you can do that with an easy tutorial. So, lets begin.

1. Open up VLC Media Player. Don’t have it installed? Download VLC player from here –> Link.

2. See the first option on the top? “Media”. Click it and then click the second last option from the drop down box, “Streaming”.
3. After clicking “Streaming” option, a new dialog box opens up which has 4 tabs. You have to select the third one –> “Network”.

4. Now you have opened the “Network” tab and have an empty box where you have to enter the network URL. For eg. rtsp://ss1c6.idc.mundu.tv:554/prf0/cid_4.sdp is the network URL of Aaj Tak.
5. After entering the network URL, click that downwards arrow(with the “Stream” button) and choose the “Play” option.
Thats it. Some 15-20 seconds later you will be able to watch the channel you have given the network URL for.

For some unknown reasons, I was not able to take a perfect screenshot of the video but I hope you have understood the tutorial. Below are the network URLs of some available channels.
