Adobe has just introduced a free player for watching TV shows available on the web. Go to to download the software.

Once you have it and start up, you will see a home page with thumbnail images of featured shows and a text list of popular categories off to one side. The shows include the popular “CSI” series, Jericho, Survivor and other current shows, as well as golden oldies like The Twilight Zone, Hawaii Five-O and Melrose Place. You can look for shows by name or click on the network buttons (CBS, PBS, etc.)  for lists of what they have  available. You can download the shows for later viewing or click to see them right away.

If you go to the text list of subjects, you get a choice of science and technology, comedy, news, hobbies, education and many other subjects. Click on comedy and you get some real TV shows, plus shorts and commentary created just for the web. Go to science and technology and you can click on “Food Science,” for example, which gives you lots of information and pictures on subjects like fermentation, freezing and microwaving.
