    Anybody watching anything? I see slingbox isn't supported yet and Hulu needs flash player. I haven't looked into orb yet.

    orb works in the browser mycast.orb.com. I just need to change where the stream opens in act 1 player and not the default to see if I can get better quality.:)

    That sucks. Iknow they should earn some money for what they do, but now you dont even know what youget for your money. To me the $1.99 a month I have to go through paypal to give them, is worth it for only 4 channels.

    I decided to give this a shot, at least till Slingplayer is out. Loads fast and looks great on Droid. Thnx for posting!

    Can you please list all of the channels? I am wondering how they are doing this without legal repercussion. I suppose if it is only OTA channels, that is how they are (or think they are for the time being) getting away with it. If it is legit, I would get this at $1.99/mo for sure. If for nothing else, just for sports (College/Pro Football). At least until Slingbox comes out with a player for Android...

    Not exactly what you are looking for. It only has four channels, FOX, NBC, CBS and one other I cant remember. Just subscribe and before you even pay they give you 24 hour admission. They email you an invoice but you get access right away. You can even watch on PC.

    can you use your browser to go to channelsurfing.net ? or does that require flash or something else the droid/eris doesnt have? i've always been a huge fan of that site.
