Why would miru conjugate to miteimasukara?

(Sorry for writing this in roman letters)

So the sentence is: Teribi wo kesanaidekudasai. Nyuusu wo miteimasukara

Why do we change it from Miru to miteimasukara?

    A.  terebi (not teribi).  

    B. Sentence #1 = Please don't turn off the TV.

    C. #2 = Because we're watching the news. 

    D. miru = see / sees / will see (watch / watches/ will watch)

    mite iru = am/is/are seeing/watching.  That's in plain form.

    mite imasu  - is the normal form of mite iru. 

    kara = because.  It ends the clause, instead of beginning it like English does. 

    nyuusu = news (English word, transliterated to Japanese, just like terebi). 

    wo = direct object.

    mite imasu = (we/they/I/he/she etc) are/am/is watching 

    kara = because. 

    Note that in spoken Japanese mite imasu is often shortened to mitemasu.   

    mite imasu specifies that we/they etc are watching the news right now. 

    Source(s): intermediate Japanese.

    No.  There's no "conjugate to."
