    My MB is connected to a 22" display.
    I'm wanting it to live stream a channel like Sky Sports or Sky News at full screen.

    Anybody know what I can do for this?

    Thanks.

    See if the sky website has a live stream. CNN and BBC sometimes do

    And there are some apps with free internet tv. ill see if I can find it.

    One problem is that if you are watching a flash video in fullscreen, and you click on anything on the other monitor, the video will exit from fullscreen.

    Thats very true, but you can open it in a regular window in safari, and use the safari 4 zoom i guess.

    OP, here is the app I was talking about...never used it but im downloading it now!

    UPDATE Ah what do you know, skynews is one of the channels.

    Just downloaded it and getting to grips with it now. I really appreciate all your help to both of you.

    Thanks. ;)
