Internet TV

Slashdot had an article talking about Internet Television. This got me thinking about something that I wished was available, but probably will never become reality due to local market affiliation, etc: Watching real/live network television feeds via the Internet.

A year or two ago, I found myself working late into the evening on a lot of nights. Normally, it wouldn't bother me, except this one Thursday night meant that I would miss a new episode of Friends.

I would have loved to have had access to a video stream of the live East Coast satellite feed, even if that meant suffering through the network commercials.

Hopefully something like this becomes a reality, but probably won't because local television markets would lose money somehow.
