    Pardon if this has been asked before......

    I don't have an active cable connection and am trying to view the CNN Live stream (using the username / password from my sister's Comcast account) to stream CNN Live on my Logitech Revue.

    The streaming works great in the browser on my desktop PC. On the Logitech it just spins and spins but no video ever loads.

    Can anyone else test this out and/or provide tips on how to get CNN Live to stream properly?

    THANKS!

    -Cory

    Geeze, guess I gotta be the bearer of bad news. CNN along w/many of the media moguls that control local channels are blocking this device. To see to what extreme measures they are willing to go to, try Disney.com. I love the Disney channel and everything related to old Walt. But this is truly cruel and uncharacteristic of that company. What a bunch of assholes we have to deal with just to enjoy a device that the whole industry will have to deal with eventually.

    Sorta like Napster. Kill it. Buy it. Accept it.

    Btw, an example of the greatest proof against intelligent design, the Disney site for their theme parks and ticketing offices are compatible w/this device.

    CNN does have a web site optimized for GTV - although the live stream isn't available there. It's still a nice set-up with plenty to watch:

    CNN.com XL

    Yeah, thought about that too. But when yer asked about live streaming and offer a site that only allows videos, I think that would be far from a specific answer. But I do use a CNN site that allow for videos. Hey, isn't it an App? I can't remember if I took it from the orig Spotlight site or if I downloaded it from the Market.

    Thanks

    You can get the CNN live feed here:


    Live News Streaming Political Chatrooms » CNN LIVE STREAM USA

    OMG!

    It's back! I thought you guys killed it in that thread Project TV. Like most of the other sites that just disappeared. Dang! I don't know if a thank you is enough. Every time a free site was posted in that thread, the site disappeared.

    Anyway, Thank You, Catfish Rivers

    Sorry to tell you this but it works, just log in go back to clips one more time, then go back to streaming and wait till the clip finishes, it should work then just fine.
    Good luck!

    Yep. The site has made a few changes. When it went down, I thought it was gone for good. Usually such sites aren't targeted for copyright infringements. But I think they get hot under the collar when a site is being posted as an alternative to cable.

    It works on my Logitech Revue - however some of the channels don't play smoothly (they stutter - by this I mean some channels play a few seconds then pause a few seconds). Some of the channels work OK.
