Jailbroken ATV2 and live sports feeds

Hi, i'm new here, I did a quick search couldn't find anything, so hopefully this hasn't been asked, I apologize in advance if it has.

I'm going to be getting an Apple TV 2 that I plan on jailbreaking, installing xbmc and some add-ons. I was wondering if it is possible to get live sports feeds (nhl, nfl, ...) without having to get any subscriptions, like nba league pass, etc. If it's possible, do I just install some add-ons?

Ok, thanks for the response. I heard about ESPN3, but I was also told it is possible to get some good sports streams, mainly standard def, but better then nothing. I'm just having no luck finding anything unless i'm willing to pay someone to do it for me because that information isn't free for some people.

The SportsDevil add-on has pretty much everything you could think of. Almost everything I tried didn't work but a few did, one of which was a stream from an NBA game that was clearly subscription-based content. Picture quality was awful though. I've only been jailbroken for two days now though, perhaps someone who's done it longer can chime in. From what I gather, these guys have been having trouble recently and that's where a lot of the good stuff comes from, they're accessible via the SportsDevil add-on which is part of the MaxMustermann repo in XBMC.

Sportsdevil is the bet I've seen. Picture quality is pretty low...

I've not had much luck with live sports through any media player, other than what you get by subscription. MLB.tv on the ATV2 is superb to any other way of watching live baseball. Hopefully more of these types of apps will become available. Baseball is the primary sport we watch, so that's great for us. The other live sports I just get through regular TV. Most of the big games are live over the air in HD, so an antenna to the TV is probably the best way to go if you don't have cable.

Yup. As of now sportsdevil isn't really working because Max (the creator of the add-on) hasn't been doing much to update it because of his busy life. So right now sportsdevil isn't your best option.
