    Default How to watch Bloomberg Live TV for free (legally)

    Hi, I just wanted to pass this along, since I imagine at least some of you may have cut your cable service but still want to watch some financial news networks - legally, and for free.

    The quick answer is you can watch bloomberg live "TV", by simply going to https://pluto.tv , then scrolling through the various free channels on there and selecting Bloomberg.

    You'll note you can also watch RT (Russian Television), which is a Russian state sponsored American news channel. This channel often focuses on financial related news.. but you can pretty much expect the polar opposite of the likes of MSNBC. I watch it once in a while, just to get an opposite perspective of mainstream... but I listen to anything on there with a huge grain of salt.

    As far as watching many other news channels for free. In most countries, what I am about to tell you may not be legal, but in some of them it is... so I am sharing it with you anyway, but understand that if it is illegal, you may have some authority come knocking at your door eventually. On a PC, you can download something called "KODI TV", which is an open source and free software... which IS legal. Think of it as just a media player... it comes with zero content. Then, after you download it, you can add "plug-ins"/ or "add-ons". It is some of these video addons that may or may not be legal. Some of them are, some of them may not be. That's as far as I will go. You'll need to do more research. I will warn that this platform is not idiot proof and if you aren't good with computers, it's probably going to be frustrating setting it up. For more info on how to setup Kodi, check out some videos on Youtube.

    Good luck,
    Adeptus

    I do a similar thing by often reading China Daily. Armed with a high level of skepticism and caution it can give some insight into what the Chinese propaganda machine is driving towards.

    To add ... one can get a Raspberry Pi 3 with a wireless keyboard & built-in trackpad for $100 CAD with a 3-year replacement warranty. I have 5 Operating systems installed on them (LibreElec is for KODI). Covenant & Exodus are the only 2 add-ons you really need. A VPN service is a must though ($50 USD/year) - but I always have one anyways. Admittedly I run deep technically - but KODI setup instructions are amongst the best on the internet. My wife is a total Luddite (she's OK with me saying that as she calls me her I.T. guy) and although she didn't configure them - she can use them with ease. As a bonus, you can run game emulators, Libre Office (full MS Office interchangeability) and web surf on a Raspberry Pi as well. That's a lot of functionality for a $100 device that does HDMI and fits in the palm of your hand.

    I'm certain you know all this Adeptus - but I expand here for others.
