I find it weird in this day and age, if you want to watch a live sports game, your only choice is to go through a cable or dish provider that still has you plugging into a coaxial jack in the wall, connecting that to a box, and then that to your TV. My Oppo has Netflix streaming, which only requires cables for the power and for the video signal input, but the data you watch comes from the internet via a wireless adapter. Simple. Why can't channel broadcasts be that way? I currently don't have any TV service of any kind, and my gf who's about to move in with me wants to watch basketball games live (she loves the Nuggets). Other than that, neither of us watch television, so it's not worth laying down a cable from the weird spot the cable jack in the wall is to where the home theater setup is and pay $40/month only to watch essentially one channel, the Altitude channel, which is Denver's channel for broadcasting sports games. Why can't it be like Netflix streaming, where I pay monthly to have it streamed through my Oppo over wireless, and not having to resort to cables and converter boxes? The only solution I know of is Slingbox, which streams cable from one TV to another over the internet. My parents have a house in Kansas and have cable, so what I've been doing is having a Slingbox in Kansas stream cable into a computer that's connected to my TV in Colorado, but the stream quality is bad, and I'm on my third Slingbox in three years as the other units have failed. It's not a reliable solution, unfortunately. Does there exist any streamed, live cable services using the internet rather than physical cables to receive broadcasts?
