Any Applications or Sites Available To Watch TV Shows/Movies?

[ Edited ]

Are there any applications or sites available that I can watch TV Shows and/or Movies? (Like Hulu or Sling?)

 

On a side note: How can I update my Flash Version?

Flash is not available on the BB (and very smartphones).

orb.com
works great, just install on home pc (it has to be always on, or at least on when you want to watch TV)
Then just login to your orb account and click to watch tv.
Seems to work good.

That looks awesome, Jeff!

 

Is that easy to set-up?

 

I have a Slingbox (from like 4 years ago), but I just moved and my computer is too far from the TV now, for me to link the two.

 

Is Orb easier to set-up? Do I have to connect my TV and computer?

YES, very easy.  all you need is a tv tuner for your computer (external or internal) connected to cable/sat/ota.

 

just set up your free account on orb, and go to orb on your storm, sign in and watch what you want.

 

you can also view your webcam or any other media you have on your computer.

That does sound cool. Please tell me that there is a way that I can connect my TV Tuner (in my TV) to my computer, wirelessly...?

no, you need to buy a tuner for your computer.  check ebay, you can get one cheap, but stay with a name brand one.  i got a dell tuner for about $40, but tuners sell at bestbuy and other places upwards of $100
