How To Watch Who Do You Think You Are Online Without Cable

CLARIFICATION: The article entitled How To Watch Who Do You Think You Are Online Without Cable, (originally published yesterday and shown below) refers to watching Who Do You Think You Are? on streaming video over the Internet, not to watching it on cable or satellite television.

truTV is the Internet television division of Turner Entertainment Networks, Inc., a Time-Warner company. All references to truTV in the How To Watch Who Do You Think You Are Online Without Cable article refer ONLY to watching television programming over Internet streaming video, not to watching it on cable or satellite television. truTV typically is available via Internet-connected devices, such as Roku boxes, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and similar “set-top boxes” as well as on Windows and Macintosh computers and on iPad, Android, and similar tablet computers.

Who Do You Think You Are? is also being broadcast on the TLC network, which is available on most cable and satellite television services.

Again, as the article title of How To Watch Who Do You Think You Are Online Without Cable  refers ONLY to watching Who Do You Think You Are? on the Internet. To watch it on satellite or cable TV, look at TLC.

I have re-worded the original article (shown below) in hopes of clarifying the differences.

In the United States, the new season of Who Do You Think You Are? starts next Sunday evening. March 5, at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time on truTV. That is an Internet-only channel.

You can watch Who Do You Think You Are? on the Internet if you have DIRECTV NOW, even with a DIRECTV NOW free trial. You also can watch it on the Internet with PlayStation Vue.

Not sure if you announced the opening tonight on PBS of Henry Louis Gates three part series “Africa’s Great Civilization”. Although advertised as covering 200,000 years of African history, it also has a genealogical focus tracing the origins of man.

I don’t watch tv programming that ‘celebrates’ hollywood or stardom. Too many other deserving people in the u.s. that should be featured. Maybe WDYTYA could feature a military figure? Until then, I think of this program like the Oscars. There’s an off switch and I use it. Would rather spend my time doing my own research.

Dick, truTV ISN’T an internet-only channel. It’s available on cable.That may be why people are confused.

I for one will not be watching. I also have an off button. I really don’t care about the Hollywood people getting their research done for them. When there are plenty of non-Hollywood people who would love to have some help in finding just one item related to their own research and genealogy.

I think the producers choose celebrities to attract interest in the program in watchers who are not genealogists. The program raises awareness of the resources that are out there to be used. It also gets watchers interested in finding more about their own families.
