    A wonderful player called TVUPlayer http://www.tvunetworks.com/. Shh...it's legality might be questionable. jk jk.

    It only seems to hang when you switch channels (maybe a few seconds as it streams). But other than that it's a wonderful replacement for TV.

    http://www.hulu.com is another one if you're not yet familiar. Not too sure of the G4 ability but Hulu rotates their shows regularly and is completely legal & free. 2 things that go well together...
    It also has a desktop application at http://www.hulu.com/labs

    Well, not to say that it's not out there but I would imagine real time TV broadcast would be tough to find on the internetz and I can assure you that I would drop my dish so fast if I ever found it myself...
    Best of luck, though.

    You can use Hulu Desktop for Fox and NBC programming. ABC and CBS shows are available on their respective websites.

    http://(here) is NOT a valid link. The point of a link is to circumvent copy/paste.
