    I was looking for an app that will allow me to watch the New York Islanders live on my phone. I know this may seem a little to demanding, but i would pay a good amount for an app that can do that. Or atleast give me highlight clips as the game is going on, for example. It would be similiar to Sportacular, but instead provide maybe 20-30 second highlights as the game is going on.

    Well I know that this is being worked on.
    My computer teacher says that the company his brother is working for is making a chip to allow live HD TV right on your phone.
    He has also said that Microsoft owns 51% of Apple so he may be wrong.

    I'm actually a bit surprised these don't exist already, as they do for other phones - for a modest monthly fee you can get a couple of dozen channels.. the problem is they pretty much universally use realplayer which doesn't exist for the iphone, and I haven't heard either that someone like O2 is going to create H264 live streams or Real is going to port their player... it'll take one or the other.

    It's called Slingobx or ORB, research them, and besides the Islander's suck so bad, why would you want to watch them, all of Long Island is like the blackhole of NY.
