Is there any way to watch live TV... like sports... in SL

Question

Except for a very few people, no. 

 

To do what you desire, you need the source of material (say cable box), Video capture device, a computer running Darwin, AND a relay server running Darwin on a colo computer with 100Mbps to the backbone.  Very few people have the skill or the gear or the cash to do that.  And even then you have no control over your cable box, unless you also send commands to a realworld device which changes the channels upon command via the internet (an HTTP call with ?chan=xxx at the end).  If you are looking for something like a slingbox for SL, they don't exist and the MOV-only requirement for streaming video limits what you can do.
