    I think the legal point is rebroadcasting. If in anyway they are rebroadcasting from a source then its not legal. If they are not streaming the content in anyway then its legal.

    US laws are old but the old-timers were years ahead of their time. You can receive from free air waves but you can not rebroadcast without written consent from the source.

    There is a desktop app which seems to work really well. I had no trouble with the iphone web access but lots more channels on the desktop app.

    Hope this continues.

    Have you tried over the air. Just get a antenna on your house and either use a TV with built in tuner or get an external tuner. The new digital capabilities gets you HD with the right tuner and a lot more channel.

    I tried it on my iPhone4 and it worked great. I have a slingbox though and it's much better. Once it becomes pay you basically have two choices, ORB or SlingBox (it seems these are the most popular ones). With ORB your computer must remain on all the time and you will need a tv tuner card and possibly some other hardware (not positive as I didn't go this route). My slingbox is the older AV model but it works just fine. I can watch all my channels and recorded programs on my DVR. The lowest model they have now is the Solo and it's $158 on Amazon (might beable to find them on your local craigslist for less) and then you will need to buy the app which is $29.99. To be honest I rarely use it; it was a novelty at first but the "coolness" factor wore off pretty quick. It obviously drains your battery pretty quick and if you are not on a unlimited data plan you will need to watch your usage stats. It has come in handy though. I was on a flight to Kansas visiting family for Christmas. We landed and were stuck on the tarmac for about an hour. After sitting there for 5 minutes the pilot told us we could go ahead and turn on our cell phones. Grabbed mine and fired up my slingplayer and a few of us watched the Cowboys game :-)

    I noticed that too. Weird.

    Just had to delete it from my kids iT devices though as I wasn't aware that there was porn available.

    There should be a filter, in the settings or something to remove xxx channels

    Gave it a look. All west coast LA channels and I wanted to see how the Steeler game looked on it. Can't believe MNF isn't on one channel? haven't checked the pron channels yet.

    ESPN has MNF that's why!

    Free on Veetle.com. Has a "lite" version of the regular site. Have to search streamers who may have the game.

    All channels are back now, at least in the last 5 minutes... I wonder if they can include HBO and VH1, that would make my day!
