    Here's the deal.

    I run on a treadmill every morning (about an hour or so)

    I have a wifi iPad 2

    I have a jail-broken iPhone with MyWi (so unlimited streaming to my iPad 2 is O.K.)

    I'd like to run on the treadmill and watch CNBC or ESPN, or something other than watching the clock countdown on my treadmill...

    Suggestions?

    Great! Looks promising. And for $9.99 per month, no ads. I may have to consider that.

    Be careful with JustinTV as I use it too and like it but the amount of crap feeds can get EXTREMELY annoying

    Could you elaborate? If I stick to CNBC and ESPN HD do you think I'll have a problem? I see that there are numerous "free-lance"-type streams, but if I stick to the main channels, am I good??? OR am I missing some huge "gotcha"?

    Thanks.

    When I load the app, I get many feeds pretending to be regular channels or shows and it turns out to be some site wanting me to go there. One especially is a CNBC feed and when clicked on it, it brings me to some picture with a site address on it telling me to go there for a feed of CNBC. Same with ESPN, etc...

    Wish I could get rid of all of them. After a few tries, I finally find a real one

    You can subscribe to "favorite" feeds. Then you won't even notice any of the other content. I dont pay any monthly fee, only the one-time purchase on the App Store.
