TV (Television) and Video

English Language IPTV for U.S. Viewers (Big Table)

For inclusion in my table, shows must be streamable on Demand or live in U.S.A. without a cable, satellite or other aggregator subscription. (I have randomly included some common channels that require a subscription).
I omit Adult (e.g., X rated) channels.
Not a completely comprehensive list!
Classified by whether free, and by content.
Also recommended: Roku boxes include many channels not listed here. They are much easier to use than Kodi apps and Android TV boxes.
[u]Cautions[/u]: Many channels exist to push specific political or religious positions, or to host informercials, and will seem biased to people of other affiliations, often including myself. Much of my info is incomplete, out of date or incorrect. When categories are seperated by commas (e.g., General, Religious affiliation), that means the station includes both categories, in decreasing order of frequency.
Free? Abbreviations
  Free=Free on demand episodes (no credit card needed; more than just teasers - though in some cases, only recent episodes are free)
  SomeFree=Some episodes are free on demand (I won't list this if there are only short clips, or a few teaser episodes)
  Sub=channel subscription required
  Agg=Aggregator (e.g., Cable, Satellite...) Subscription Required
  LimTFree=Limited viewing time Free at once
  Live=Only Live available
  PPV=Pay per view
View with A browser (+optional add-on or extension)that sees videos (not necessarally optimal; only tested on websute if subscription required), specifically Chrome and/or FireFox and/or Opera and/or Kodi and/or flash and/or Silverlight; "App" means requires an app; left blank if I couldn't check

TIVO - probably the top end Over-The-Air (OTA) or cable channel DVR (Digital Video Recorder), because they include a nice program guide (an expensive service, unless you buy a used one with Lifetime service). (Note: old VCRs, while they are very cheap used, can't record modern ATSC OTA and QAM cable TV signals. But I have also used a DVD Recorder to record modern TV signals.) Tivo Series 3 were the oldest units that can handle modern ATSC and QAM signals - and all need cable card adapters to handle cable signals. There are other brands of DVR, with much harder to use program guides.

Video DownloadHelper (for Firefox, many websites; same remarks on what to do if doesn't work.)
Kodi.tv A free IPTV streaming app - mostly used by hackers; inconvenient and trouble prone. I switched from this to PC web browsers and a Roku box. The biggest problem with Kodi is how it deals with delayed or dropped packets. In particular, sections of Sound, Video, and subtitles often go missing, and also go progressively out of sync, making the content incomprehensible. Good protocals and software pause until the missing packets can be retrieved, and use them all. In addition, it should be easy to rewind in 8 - 10 second steps, in case you missed something. The "," key on an external keyboard is supposed to do this, but it doesn't always work.
Note: You can find many "Kodi" or "Android TV" boxes on-line at eBay or Amazon, that can be used to watch TV and movies from various sources over the Internet, without a PC. From experience, many are fake or don't work, and have no or useless support - I suggest you restrict yourself to orders from top rated sellers from your own country. AFAIK, the main Kodi site, kodi.tv only contains software that is legal in the U.S., so if you restrict yourself to software drawn from that site, it is probably OK. For the most part, you can get rid of pirated software by completely de-installing and re-installing Kodi, but be careful - if the box has an out of date version of the Android operating system, that may not work - and you will need to reset the box to factory settings. There may be a menu option to do that; on many Android TV boxes, there is a reset switch inside the AV or audio port that you can reach with a toothpick. And any such changes are done at your own risk - the box may not work when you are done.
Kodi Wiki Manual e.g., includes list of supported devices
Kodi Wiki: HOW-TO:Modify the video cache so audio and video don't stutter (i.e., start and stop).
  Example of advancedsettings.xml for Kodi 17, assuming lots of (flash-based) memory available. Also turns off flash image to speed kodi start-up. Goes in a directory named something like kodi/Userdata or .kodi/userdata.
Kodi Keyboard Controls
GeeXboX - a small (can even boot from a CD or jump drive), very fast Linux-based operating system that can run Kodi. I tried this because Kodi on a windows PC running on a (slow) Atom CPU kept stuttering despite using the above advancedsettings.xml. Couldn't make it work, but a lot of people love it.
LUbuntu, another small, fast, Linux-based operating system that can run Kodi, as well as Firefox and Chrome web browsers. This works, for the most part - but you still need to know how to use Linux.

Other Cordcutting resources
Cordcutting.com On-line magazine, discusses non-cable TV distribution
Roku IPTV streaming boxes. I love the simple, consumer-friendly interface. Sure, some things could be better: the only way to take text input (e.g., for searches) from a real keyboard is to connect it to a smart phone, on which you install the remote app; it would be nice to be able to sort the apps alphabetically. But if you have struggled to use Kodi and Android TV, these are much easier and more intuitive to use, and solve the above problems. Plus, everything works. And you can be reasonably sure that anything you find by searching for new channels is legit, not pirated. There are other brands, some cheaper. As of this writing, I use Roku's low end Roku Express box (use the Express Plus if you have an old TV with AV jacks, but no HDMI, or maybe [not tested!] if you want to record out of your Roku into an old VCR or a DVD Recorder). It works well, supports almost all the legit IPTV sources, and is about $30 - but be sure to connect it directly to your TV, not through an HDMI switch with an LED light, and to use the factory USB power source, or one rated to over 1 amp, or it will eventually fail and say there is something wrong with your power source. I wish it could take an external keyboard for program and channel searches. It can sort of use the Roku SmartPhone remote app as a keyboard - but it is very clumsy.
Broadband Internet
You need Broadband Internet to stream video, and you want something pretty close to an unlimited data package. Streaming video is about 3 - 10 Mbit/sec = 1.35-4.5 GB / hour = 251.1-837 GB/month if you view 6 hours/household/day, depending on quality and resolution. Note that most "unlimited" plans actually charge extra, throttle your data rates, or disconnect you if you use too much. Add to that all the extra overhead (e.g., Windows PCs take a lot of data just to stay up to date). It would be very easy for a household to go over even Xfinity's 1 TB/month plan. Nonetheless, cable and phone companies are good starting places to look. Wireless data plans are, for the most part, too expensive or too limited. Some local WiFi services look plausible - but may have limits now or in the future.
