    Is there anyway to watch TV channels like NBC, E!, CNN and CNBC on QuickTime?

    No.

    QuickTime is a program that plays media files. It's not a TV or a TV tuner or the such.

    If you however want to watch TV on your computer, EyeTV is what you're looking for.

    I know, but you can stream video to your computer with it. I want the stream URLs. :)

    Not quite true. QuickTime is the frameworks for time-based data in MacOS/MacOS X. The QuickTime Player is the most famous QuickTime-based application. You are correct that it is not a TV tuner. fernandovalente is correct that the QuickTime Player can view video streams. Undoubtedly, elgato's EyeTV TV tuner software is based on the QuickTime frameworks.

    What's the problem? The QuickTime Player can handle video streams.

    There's no problem. I just don't know what are the stream URLs for NBC, CNBC, E! and CNN.
