Lee Bentley: Good Morning, Lee. To get Showcase TV live stream, try this link. It works for me, not sitting there forever loading, but see my notes below:-

showcasetv - informationtv: Experienced Broadcast Services

Notes:- I am running Mozilla Firefox version 48.0 and I have the following plug-ins:-

Adobe Flashplayer, Shockwave Flash, version 22.0.209, which is up-to-date and the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in, version 5.1.50428.0, also apparently up-to-date.

So I was just thinking that you may need to try a different web browser or install plug-ins that perhaps you don't currently have installed. Hope this helps, Richard, Norwich. PS, I'm assuming your download speed is at least 8.0 Mbits per second?!

Hello, I have a smart TV and can get Showcase on channel 254, but found out in November this year the CMA awards are live on ABC broadcaster in America, I wondered whether your channel will show it live also or record it in its entirety and then show it in full at a later date, I love Country Music but I will never ever be able to afford Sky TV as it's far too much, no other channel or broadcaster is willing to show this, and if either the BBC or ITV did show it then it would only be highlights but they can show the MOBOS, and the Brit awards live I appreciate your help and hope to hear from you soon. Thank You.

Alan Beck: You would be better off contacting the broadcaster with your question. This website is not related to any broadcaster and has no information on future program scheduling for any channels. It may also be worth trying the broadcaster of Keep It Country seeing as they run a dedicated country music channel.
