Hello,
I can't get cable at my cottage but I can get to the internet via my iPhone (tethering). Is there a way to watch TV on my laptop and show the laptop screen onto a large screen via a projector?

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

You don't need a projector if you can cable your laptop to the TV with a long D-Sub or HDMI cable. See what sockets you have on the back of the TV set.

Depending on where you live, you should be able to find a website which shows some TV channels - in the UK it's TVCatchup at http://old.tvcatchup.com/register/ and you may even find it works in your country. I get 40 channels in Britain, maybe not the best ones but a decent choice for a free service. You have to suffer a thirty second advert before you get to choose or change channels.
