    Is there an app that will allow me to watch live tv shows on my EVO?

    I am NOT looking for an app that will:
    --let me watch 1,000 tv stations from the Ukraine or India!
    --Only allow me to watch TV shows that were actually on TV last week or months ago.

    For example: If I am stuck in the airport for a few hours and would like to watch an episode of Fringe, that is coming on TV in about 10 minutes, is there an app that will allow me to watch this NEW episode from my EVO as if I was actually watching it from my home TV?

    Popular stations like: NBC,ABC,CBS,FOX,ESPN,TNT.....etc...are stations I am looking for.
    NOT 1,000 random crap stations from around the world!

    yes and no...

    slingbox is the only thing I am aware of... you would need the box, and the app

    I know there have to be other ways of setting up a way to do it from a home server but I have never looked into it ...it would also be difficult to coordinate changing channels etc...

    one of my customers has it and it's pretty awesome...just hard for me to justify the $$ as I don't travel much ..or watch tv much for that matter

    There are some apps that try and organize Justin TV links...but those links rarely work long
