    free online live tv streaming

    hi,

    i was wondering if there is any program for ubuntu 8.04 that is similar to zattoo for free live tv streaming?

    i cannot get zattoo to install on my 64bit laptop.

    also any programs like zattoo but allows me to watch live tv from hong kong?

    Try Kaffeine? Haven't done it myself, but http://www.linux.com/feature/127800 talks about it.

    I don't use it, but Miro seems like it might be somewhat similar to Zattoo...

    Go to www.scumbox.com
    There are all kind of streams there (direct and P2P), so some of the channels won't work unless you add the ActiveX applets to your firefox temp folder, but most of the channels will work fine at once.
    There are channels like Disney Cinemagic, FOX sports and SKY sports, euro sport, cnn, bbc world, discovery and more. Offcourse it's free!

    For p2p tv you can use gsopcast.

    iplayer for BBC channels and radio, if you're not already aware of this. Not sure about HK channels - perhaps using a proxy? So the site thinks that you are located there when you are somewhere else...

    thanks for all the helpand suggestions.

    managed to get zattoo working on my 64bit laptop now.

    followed the guide in: http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums....d.php?t=618368

    all i now gotta figure out is to get channels from Hong Kong.
