    As far as I know, you'd have to have a Slingbox which allows you to watch any live TV broadcast on your Droid X, same as if you're watching your TV at home.

    It's a device that connects your television to your home computer. You can then watch your television via the internet on any computer. The software has a remote control emulator that allows you to change channels and do anything remotely that you can do at home.

    Then, if you want this same access to all live TV programming on your smartphone, you purchase the slingbox android app and install it on your phone. Now you can watch live television on your Droid X.

    It's pretty slick but the initial oulay is fairly steep. The box runs about $200 to $300, depending on which model you get and the android app is $30. On the positive side, there are no subscription fees, just the initial hardware and software purchases.

    I've had mine for probably 3 or 4 years now, so over time it's not as painful. They have software available for all of the main smartphone operating systems. Nothing quite like it as far as I know if you want live TV broadcasts on your phone. It looks great on the Droid X's big screen too!

    Little late. Looks like they've been shut down for piracy!

    I think Slingbox or OrbTV look like the best bet to legally stream the game.
