If you’re dipping your toe into online entertainment, either to supplement or replace cable television, you have so many options, you might be overwhelmed and at a loss for where to start.

We’re here to walk you through your choices and help you find favorite shows, movies, sports and other events with the least amount of hassle.

While searching on Bing, Google, or other search engines for your favorite television shows can be hit or miss, try Can I Stream.It?, which lets you see a bunch of different sites that stream or offer digital downloads of content. Can I Stream It isn’t perfect; sometimes, it tells you shows are available online when they’re not, and vice versa — but it’s better than searching individual websites for content.

While the selection and setup will vary depending on the network, you’ll typically find a network’s popular shows online shortly after they’ve aired, as well as a few older episodes. If you have a favorite show or network, it’s worth looking up its website to see what’s available.
