Live television can be a bit of a pain in the butt, as a lot of content gets lost and doesn’t make it into your feeds.
That can be especially true of TV dramas, which have their own live feeds but tend to be restricted to just a handful of episodes.
And that can be frustrating for those who are trying to watch a show at the same time as a new show.
That’s why live streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and HBO Now offer dedicated channels for all sorts of shows.
And with so many channels, it’s easy to forget that some of the shows you can’t watch live on Netflix or Amazon aren’t going to make it on to a new season of your favourite show.
Luckily, there are a few streaming services that offer live streaming for your favourite shows.
Here are the most popular ones.
BBC One: The BBC One channel has always been the go-to place for most people when it comes to live TV, with the BBC1 channel offering a wide range of live channels.
But, this year, the BBC One team is bringing back a show you may have missed from the last few years.
The latest addition to the BBC Two channel is a new sitcom called The Big Bang Theory, starring Jonny Lee Miller.
