I have been happily enjoying OTA programming for over a year now, and have had no complaints. None, that is, until the Vikings/Packers game is only on ESPN tonight. Does anybody have any ideas of internet TV software that actually work? I have a windows laptop that I can use, so I'm not tied to Linux for this specific case.

I welcome any and all ideas at this point. I'm in the chicago comcast market, and my qam tuners aren't picking it up either.

So, to answer my own question, I ran across http://justin.tv. I think it'll work for my limited requirements, and figured I'd share my findings...

I've used that before when I couldn't get Sox/Patriots games. I've had pretty good luck with it.

http://www.myp2p.eu is another good one for streaming sports. Lately the streaming has been via streamtorrent which is windows only.

I've had poor luck with Justin.TV. Currently watching Eagles / Texans using the StreamTorrent tools on the wife's PC. It seems there are linux instructions under wine. I got things to install correctly (need to also install WMP 9), but it's not finding internet connectivity. I probably need to mess with the firewall settings but did want to share a positive experience.

(Came here looking for help but it seems I'm further along than some!)

Good luck if anyone is still looking for solutions.
