    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.

    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! :D

    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.
