Does anybody know of a "FREE" program or web site out there that would allow me to stream Live TV over the internet? I ask because I do not own a TV but would like to watch Fox News, CNN, ESPN, Discovery, ect ect. Computer

I was actually trying to find a forum most likely to get answered. I hit 2 forums figuring one of them would get my question answered. Sorry about that but it was on purpose.

I doubt you will find a legal program to do that as you are talking of streaming live cable TV which is not free. Now if you have a TV tuner in your PC you can do it with a service like Orb or with a device like a Slingbox.

Streaming Live TV has been a dream of mine. I'd love to have access to streaming TV from anywhere - wouldn't you? Well, last week I redeemed 170,000 Sony points to get a Sony VAIO RA920G PC running Microsoft's Media Center Edition 2005 operating system. I was curious if I could figure out a way to "stream" my home PC's multimedia content, including My Videos (.AVI, .Divx, etc), as well as stream live TV to my PC at work by accessing the TV tuner capture card. Imagine being able to remotely control your home television, change channels, and view the content at work! Now that would be cool... And so I began my investigation and research.
