Suggest some good soft wares for capturing live TV streams

Hi, I am running a daily motion channel for news, sports and comedy videos. For this I need to capture/download live streaming videos. I wanted to know some good soft wares for this purpose.
Please, also suggest some uploading soft wares to upload videos at faster speed.

I will be thankful.

Upload speed generally is determined by your Internet connection. Switch to glass fiber or high speed cable and most likely it's what you want.
Usual consumer connections (ADSL or basic cable) are much faster for download than for upload, because the typical consumer doesn't upload much, but downloads and views a lot. So you seem to need a more professional connection.

Capturing live steaming video is rather time-consuming. And (depending on the source) there might a copyright violation if you record it to publish on your own site. It's much better (in all respects: time, work, costs, image quality, legal) to just link to the original. Most TV channels have some 'view it later at Internet' option.

Anyway, https://www.google.coml/search?q=video+capture+software might be helpful.

capture video for personal use

for capturing live streams, you may try recorders like ShowMore ( http://showmore.com/ ), Ocam and others.

But note that the recorded videos can only be used for offline viewing, it's illegal to distribute them.
