I will be watching it with my droid teathered to my laptop and slingbox. I don't know if orb would help you or not.

might try this ustream link for viewer and then check tomorrow for a feed. Got to be one tomorrow

Broadcast LIVE with USTREAM Mobile in just seconds! Download our phone application to stream video with USTREAM's mobile software to the Internet for free.

its beta but I tried it and worked and looked good. Not sure if it will foreclose after awhile though.

Where do you go on the ustream viewer app to actually find the super bowl stream? I couldn't find it, or is it just not up yet?

After I downloaded the app, I just clicked on it and searched for "superbowl" and had a ton of links. Now watching the superbowl at work on my phone!

Pfft on you!

I searched Superbowl, super bowl sb44 everything and everything would work for 2 seconds and then the channel would be "taken down" I guess, or removed. Ultimately to where a few stations with the name SUPER BOWL were running but it was a blank screen with a bunch of comments stating "yay this one works".

Obviously it wasn't working for me, but I was on the nfl website watching the score so I was okay.

Bummer I couldn't actually see the plays though :-)

p.s. I even tried uninstalling, reinstalling and rebooting my phone, no luck. Also, with USTREAM the video only took up like 5/8ths of the screen? Does that happen for everyone else, it has 2 black bars on the side in landscape mode?

Thanks again!

I had the same problems. I have a feeling they were purposely blocked. Best I could get was the audio while some dudes were sleeping on their couch. Lame, next year maybe I'll try the orb, or just try to get the day off.
