I have been told that Direct has a kit that would allow me to watch line sports. Is this true?

Does your computer have an HDMI outlet? If it does just hook it up to your TV.

Could you restate your question without using auto-correct?

Are you trying to watch live sports without a conventional DIRECTV subscription?

Are you trying to watch DIRECTV on your computer?

Is there an activity called "line sports"?

Your question is not clear, but perhaps you should Google "DirecTV2PC."

  Sorry for the typo and not being clear on my question. I want to watch  Iowa BB. Some non conference games are only  on the internet. I would like to watch them on my TV. My computer does not have a HDMI outlet. I thought maybe the Direct kit would be the answer, but I found out it will  not do this. Thanks

Google Chromecast lets you stream internet video from your Chrome browser on your PC to your TV.

Your TV must have an available HDMI port, and both your PC and the installed Chromecast must be on the same Wifi network.

DIRECTV2PC for all intent and purposes is no more. It has been replaced by the GenieGo.

my is still available.  Thus DirecTV should kill this once and for all!
