Yes they are but, they do work and with adblocker you can eliminate many of the pop ups, although there is a trick to it.Stevo wrote:Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think those sites aggregate pirated live sports streams. There would be a big difference between those and an official stream that may attempt to enforce DRM or use some proprietary technology such as NBC did with Olympic coverage and Silverlight years ago.Dieselrider wrote:I have been watching football online all this season with sites like First Row Sports and VIP sports all using Linux.

I started watching these sites back when you could only watch the official sites on a windows machine while running silverlite. I would not download that onto any of my wife's windows machines because that was nothing but trouble.
These sites allowed me to watch games while running Linux. However, I would think that now, you should be able to go to a regular CBS site to watch the game without the stupid silverlight being the only way in. At least they do stream some regular television programming over the internet that anyone can watch.
