It’s incredibly freeing knowing that your TCL TV allows you to watch what you want, when you want. 

No longer will we have to ask our family the question, “what’s on TV tonight?”

But even with access to thousands of streaming options and hundreds of thousands of movies and TV episodes, there are still times when we want to just watch TV, in the most traditional sense.

Whether it’s checking to see if school is cancelled tomorrow, checking tomorrow’s forecast for golfing, finding the latest local news, or seeing a variety of live sports, there is always a desire to watch Live TV.

At TCL, we recognize the importance of these viewing habits. That’s why no matter which TCL TV you have, whether it’s a TCL Roku TV or a TCL TV with Google TV, there are great, easy ways to watch Live TV.

Watching Live TV on a TCL Roku TV

TCL Roku TVs recently launched the Live TV Zone. Users simply turned on their TVs, and the Live TV Zone had been added to the left-hand navigation menu, right below Home and Featured Free. 

Launching the Live TV Zone opens a world of possibilities to enjoy your Live TV. First is the famous Live TV Guide, where you will see over 200 free live linear channels, as well as your over-the-air channels you’ve scanned in after connecting your antenna. 

Also in that guide is the More Ways to Watch feature for your over-the-air channels. See something on the guide you want to watch, but it’s almost over? With a push of a button, you can see all the places you can stream that show from the beginning. Wicked cool! 

Additionally, in the Live TV Zone, you will get quick access to cable alternatives like YouTube TV, Hulu Live, fuboTV, Sling and many more! 

Watching Live TV on a TCL with Google TV

Users who enjoy the Google ecosystem will be thrilled with the integration of the Live TV tab on the home screen of all TCL TVs with Google TV.  

In addition to having all the great “content forward” offerings that make Google TV great, the home screen has the Live TV tab that gives you quick and easy access to a guide featuring more than 300 channels as part of the live TV options. Whether you choose to use an antenna, or streaming services such as YouTube TV or Pluto TV. 

Based on what you watch, you will even find channel recommendations on the For You tab on the home screen. It’s thinking like this that lets users enjoy more, while searching less!

Tip: Regardless of which TCL TV you choose, remember that you have options to pause and rewind Live TV when you are watching your over-the-air channels, too!
