If your video/graphics card does not have a TV tuner built in then you cannot do what you want. You can however buy a DVT USB tuner that plugs into a USB socket on your computer that will do what you want

If I understand correctly the issue is not of recieving the programmes but more of the positioning.

I am not familiar with the website that you are using, but I have found in the past that many of the streaming sites have the ability to watch in a 'pop out' player. There is often a button on the lower right hand side of the viewing screen adjacent to the volume and full screen button. If you can 'pop out' the media player, you can position it on your screen.

hen you start TV you should be able to size the screen and drag it to where you want on the desktop, also in the software you should also select always on top
