Most cable providers and satellite dish companies carry fireplace channels. We are sure you have seen them, channels where all you see is a fireplace complete with a full, warm fire, they even add sound to make it seem more realistic.
The drawback is you really won't feel any warmer, as it is merely a picture of a fireplace.
Another disadvantage is why watch a fire on your television when there are so many programs that offer so much more, like a football game or a movie.
