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.
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.

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.

I refuse to install the silver-crap by MS.

I can view the video on MX15 / FFox.

DRM is the worst thing to happen to the Internet. I dislike any proprietary services. When everything went cable in my area, the tv stations started dropping vhf/uhf (ota) services. There are still a few left, if one uses a rotor, booster and multi-antennas for uhf / vhf. Have to turn W & SW for ch:5, 2 and 7 .. US. North for ch 12 .. CA, SE for ch:11 .. CA, NW for ch:8 and so on. Here they charge $45.00 monthly for (no-internet) non-digital cable. Oh and did I mention that our cable sucks?

I hope that later versions of HTML# will replace Flash, Silver and all of it. Would be great to get rid of all corporate proprietary services and use an open standard. Something like open-html would be nice.

I use "front row" to watch hockey. I don't watch much TV anyway, so Netflix & Front-row is all I need. I use a DNS service to get full time USA NetFlix. The USA version has more / better stuff. The signal goes out from the router (wireless) and is picked up by my samsung tv. There is a browser that can be used with the tv / remote, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I think the ss-tv uses Tanzen? Linux for OS. The browser doesn't have any kind of ad-blocking. Once the ads start rolling in and pop-up windows start opening, I just give in and close the browser. It would be nice to have an OS on the tv that allowed for some configuration. It doesn't seem to likely though.

I refuse to buy music & players that are proprietary. My player will play pretty much anything .. Video & Audio. I use mostly flac & avi. I refuse to buy MS / Apple anything. All those corporate monster monopolies that have grown up around us should be broken up and scattered to the four winds. just saying ..

I just can't get into football .. They have no sticks! ;)

cbssports.com is supposed to have it.

The CBS stream doesn't work with Pepperflash in Mozilla-based browsers, it seems, at least for me. Works fine in Slimjet, though.

Must be a Canadian thing. Working fine right now for me In MX-14 Firefox. Using Flash 11.2 only also.
I edited media in my about:config though long ago for a thread in AntiX forums about a subject I cannot remember now.
I cannot find the thread as I am busy watching the games and the thread has disappeared into the back ground.
