    Watching Live sports on the Mac
    I am not entirely sure if this is possible but I know a few friends who have watched live sports games on their PC's and I wondered if it is possible to do the same on the Mac?

    Reason I ask is I would like to watch the Arsenal vs Twente football match tonight which is on the following channels:

    Al Jazeera Sport +1
    Canal+ Sport 1
    Nederland 3
    Polsat Sport Extra
    Setanta Ireland
    Setanta Sports 1

    None of which I have access to.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry that this isn't quite timely, but I have a solution I use to watch/DVR live events on my Macbook Pro:

    Pinnacle HD Stick Pro (model 800e)
    Elgato eyeTV 3 (ver. 3.0.2)

    The Pinnacle USB stick comes with a VERY nice OTA HD antenna, which picks up great, in spite of living in an apartment complex in suburban Phoenix, about 15-18 miles straight line from the downtown network broadcast stations. I get almost entirely hiccup-free HD broadcasts from every channel in town, and have never been disappointed.

    Cheers!

    hi mac addict, thanks for your response. I will look into your solution, I wasn't sure if what I am trying to do it illegal or not?

    Recording TV shows for personal use? Not unless it's all of a sudden gotten illegal to tape TV shows with a DVR, VCR, or set-top box...

    Cheers!
