Well, it seems I was wrong, you basically only need one program to do this, 
because after I downloaded 123 movies and installed it, I was able to watch almost 
4000 satellite channels on my computer. The channels were from all over 
the world, and included everything from news stations to music channels.

It doesn't hurt to have an open mind when you movies123 are browsing these sites. You may find a lot of movies you never heard of or that are in black and white. Don't discount a movie just because it is in black and white. Some of the greatest movies ever made are in black and white.
