In my stumbling way through my chrome book, I found a way to view MSNBC shows w/o paying to do so.
“new tab”, then http://www.msnbc.com/the full name separated w/ -. If you don’t go directly to the show of your choosing, click that & you will get the show. The shows you will be able to see will be the previous day’s show. The change in the shows availability is midnight.
I have been gorging on all the political shows. I am in heaven.
