    Does anybody know how to watch p2p streaming channels on the mac? There are apps such as pplive and sopcast, but they only seem to be for windows.

    I really want to watch the arsenal vs birmingham match today but cant find the software, so would love your help!

    Thank you.

    pplive tv for osx?

    Does anyone here know if you can get pplive for OSX?

    It looks great and enables you to watch live TV channels from all over the world (mainly china) including live premiership football and american sports.

    It would be amazing if anyone could let me know of a way of watching these on a mac.

    Many thanks,

    M

    I'm searching for such a thing too... maybe with Parallels it's possible? I want to buy my mum a Mac, but P2PTV is neccessary, otherwise it will become a Windows box.

    Anything? Buy an Intel Mac and Dualboot/use Parallels (does that work?) :p
    Isn't Viidoo TVUPlayer? I like that too, because it has stuff in a language I actually understand :D But my Mum is Chinese, doesn't live there, but would like to see chinese TV. She won't buy a Mac if it doesn't run such software.

    That's a really cool thing! Never tried it myself, but a quick search for 'tv' on versiontracker.com seems to bring up a couple of options. I will go check 'em out....

    Well it looks like maybe they are in development of a Mac/Linux version?

    7) The application does not run on Linux or Mac
    Currently TVUPlayer is for Windows only, not available for Linux or Mac.

    Please email to info@TVUNetworks.com, we will inform you when it is available.

    I found a site here http://www.premiershiplive.net/ that allegedly shows games and is mac compatible (mac os icon on the homepage) but you have to pay a joining fee. Not sure how this works or whether it's legit, but if you're willing to give it a go, let me know!

    I realise that, but it is only £14 once, as opposed to whatever extortionate monthly amount Sky charges.

    This is ridiculous... is there absolutely no way of doing this?

    Ive managed to watch some streaming tv by putting in a url manually into VLC or WMP but its just a case of finding the right url's. Usually mms:// addresses.

    I also want to watch live EPL action but I just cannot find the right addresses.

    Are there no small developers working on this for Mac users?

    Sorry - nothing to get excited about, I just didn't explain properly.

    Parallels lets you run Windows inside OS X - I simply use the normal Windows programmes for streaming - PPLive, SopCast etc.
