I want to know if the Roku box has any live channels or if they’re going to be updating the box soon to offer live programming? I’m really considering getting rid of Comcast cable and would like if I could watch some live baseball and live news coverage.April 13, 2012 at 7:33 pm #1359
If you want more live streaming on the Roku, check out catastrophegirl’s roku channel list: livestreaming (catastropegirl is too modest to share that link!) and also check out the Justin.TV private channel and some of PlayOn‘s scripts and plugins.April 14, 2012 at 5:03 am #1360
Wonder what the resolution is on some of these live streaming channels.April 15, 2012 at 4:25 pm #1361
Copied from a post over at DTV USA Forum – DTV News –Quote:Most of the “live streaming” channels for PlayOn are plugins or scripts. [URL=”http://www.%3cstrong%3eplayonscripts%3c/strong%3E”]www.[/URL]playonscripts.com/ and [URL=”http://www.%3cstrong%3eplayonplugins%3c/strong%3E”]www.[/URL]playonplugins.com/
Considering that PlayOn is transcoding on-the-fly, it’s no surprise that it’s SD, and also many of the sources are SD or less.
If you’re looking for “live streams” go here: USTVnow – Watch Live American TV Shows Online and sign up. This is a regular Private channel – not a PlayOn channel!

Its called stealing! I bet you would climb the pole if you could to get that free cable as well. I wonder what people really would think if you told them “Yeah I am a thief!”January 26, 2013 at 7:05 pm #1363Guest, post: 2369 wrote:Its called stealing!

To what, exactly, are you referring? I would not steal cable, I do not even want cable!
Some things are perfectly legal. Others are not. In between, there are varying shades of grey.
Sony and others once considered recording on videotape to be illegal, until the courts smacked them down.
Pick your own shade of grey.May 2, 2013 at 2:18 pm #1364
