Streaming Election Night Broadcast TV?

kakapo writes "A couple of years ago, we dumped our cable TV, and don't have much luck getting old-fashioned broadcast where we live. That's fine — we can download or netflix almost anything we want to see, and it is great not to pay the Comcast tax every month. Problem is, now I want to watch the election live, complete with talking heads, pundits, glitzy graphics and all the rest, rather than reading about it on a website. So, is there any way to download network TV / CNN / MSNBC in real time — I don't mind paying. And yes, we could visit friends, but ideally our kids would watch the first part and then go to bed — and a sitter would be expensive if we have to wait until late for the result."

Same thing with the World Series (0, Offtopic)

Baseball/Football/Basketball jealously guard their broadcast rights.
The only way to stream those things live is off the official website or through a premium membership (aol/msn/real networks/i'm not sure who anymore) after paying for it.

CNN is a lot easier. It's on their website for free.

For the larger your going to be best served by going directly to their webpage and look for Live, Streaming, and/or Video.

Check the Cable feed (5, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25560551)

Have you tried plugging a TV into the cable feed? A lot of times, the cable company won't bother implementing a cancellation, figuring that reclaiming the box is good enough and saving the cost of a truck roll. It's possible that you'll still have analog basic cable on that "disconnected" cable line. Alternately, you could sign up for one month of limited Analog Cable for $15.

Re:Check the Cable feed (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25560711)

Mine is technically 'disconnected' as the cable co. would call it. I still get channels 14 and below and channels 79 and up, unfortunately I miss all the best stations, but I still get the basics with no need for an antenna. Very handy.

Re:Check the Cable feed (1)

eln (21727) | more than 5 years ago | (#25560733)

I lived in an apartment for almost a year with no TV, mostly because I didn't think it was worth it to spend the money on the TV when I couldn't afford a monthly cable bill. About two weeks before I was going to move out, I finally broke down and bought a TV. Plugged it in to the cable line just for kicks, and voila, cable TV. I could have been watching free cable TV the entire time I was there.

Of course, when I moved into the new place, I plugged the TV to the cable line there and...nothing. That really sucked.

Re:Check the Cable feed (1)

Hatta (162192) | more than 5 years ago | (#25560827)

My last apartment, I smoked up the cable guy when he hooked up my internet. Guess he "forgot" to put the filter in the line after that. In my current home, I never saw the cable guy when I got internet.

OT, but I heard a story on the radio about Cox buying up spectrum, perhaps to compete with cell phone companies. I got a good laugh when the anchor mentioned "the privately held Cox".

Re:Check the Cable feed (4, Funny)

corbettw (214229) | more than 5 years ago | (#25561073)

No no no, when you let someone smoke your weed, you're smoking them out. "Smoking up" just means you gave them a smoke cured ham. But don't worry, lots of people get confused on those two (especially with the memory loss that comes from all that ham).

Re:Check the Cable feed (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25560903)

I don't know for certain but I think it actually is stopped if the tech bothers to plug in a filter that removes the cable tv signal. I had to have cable line serviced in an apartment complex because the landlord disconnected my line, thought I was stealing, I didn't have keys to the closet that the feeds came in from. Anyway I had a TV in the room but disconnected the coax and made it look like it was there for DVDs and games only. Tech walks in to greet me and tell me they arrived I guess saw the TV and when he left my free TV stopped.

Re:Check the Cable feed (0)

According to law the broadcast channels have to be unencrypted, so if you have an old cable lying around you will be able to get the broadcast channels.

Re:Anything for non americans? (5, Informative)

LWATCDR (28044) | more than 5 years ago | (#25560911)

No it isn't
Let me fill you in.
If McCain wins odds are that we will have a Democratic majority on congress.
The end result is that it should keep things somewhat in the center. Or very little will get done that doesn't have a universal support.
If Obama wins we will have a Democratic congress. Truth is that I would bet that it will also go more towards the center but if they start really messing up then in two years congress will shift back towards the Republicans and we will again have balance.
If Obama or McCain really mess up we fire them in four years and get a new president.
In the end it will not be the end of the world.
Geez I don't like Obama's energy policy since it is not as pro nuclear as I would like. I am not all that fond of McCain's tax plan. Or Obama's "Guess what folks. You can not give a tax cut to someone that already pays zero or gets more back than they pay in. That is called charity."
Truth is I doubt it matter much one way or the other. I don't think their is a great man running for president this year but I also don't think their is a monster running.
Chill out and relax.

GrumpyOldMan (140072) | more than 5 years ago | (#25560577)

Sign up for cable today, and cancel after the election. Most cable companies in the US don't have contracts, and you can cancel service at any time. You might end up paying for a month of service and an installation fee, but it could be cheaper than a baby sitter.

Good tip, and the networks and cable stations were part of the problem in 2000. Paying for their "service" would be doing America a disservice.

Michael Moore let CNN, and Fox TV have it in Fahrenheit 9/11. He suggested that it was the erroneous claim from Fox that Bush had beat Gore, that led to other stations in changing their opinion, which turned public opinion in favour of Bush Jr.

While CNN [cnn.com], MSNBC [msnbc.com], and Faux News [foxnews.com], are all likely to have live streaming feeds of election results, it might be more worthwhile to head to your local sports bar. They'll very likely have the election results on, and they have a reasonable supply of alcohol as well, which will come in handy no matter who wins (if your candidate of choice wins, you celebrate; if the other guy wins, you drown away your sorrows),... ;-)

Some channel that, perhaps with public funding, broadcast news programs over the airwaves, that would cover that kind of thing?

For myself - I had to drop Dish network, but went ahead and got two TR-40/DTVpal Digital-->Analog tuners before I did, and it turns out my PBS affiliate has three HDTV channels, with another two from another affiliate I get decent reception on, none of them have the same programming, so I actually have five pretty decent channels for free.

Free unsolicited endorsement - if you have a government coupon you need to use, I highly recommend the DTVPal. I miss comedy central, some of the science channels, and C-Span, (And PPV/Movie Channels, but they went two months before I quit Satellite entirely) but other than those, HDTV is actually doing very well.

I was pleasantly surprised.

You have saved plenty of $ skipping the cable bill, just go to a hotel for the evening.

aarenz (1009365) | more than 5 years ago | (#25561091)

First off, I am betting that the whole thing will be embroiled in troubles with all electronic voting machines and close recounts. I doubt that we will hear an official winner in several states until days or maybe weeks later. Second, suggest getting one of the digital converter boxes and an amplified antenna. Will serve you well for a long time into the future and provide a very good signal even when you normally get static on the old analog over the air. I work for a broadcast group and we have tested digital converter boxes in hard to recieve locations like condos and office buildings with some pretty good success.

Overall I say save the money and wait for the hubub to end after two weeks of the electronic version of hanging chads.

The only thing more boring than watching election coverage is watching the endless speeches, debates, talk shows, etc. leading up to the election. Your election coverage has been going on for months on end already. Obama this, and Palin that, and blah, blah, blah, voting machines, blah, blah. Just pick someone already. We have. 36 days from election called to election held.

I know people who will actually be holding election results watching parties. I can't think of much more painful that you could pay someone to do without violating OSHA..
