    Which web site did you stream the games from? Is it NCAA college basketball? A little more information would be helpful.

    You won't be able to download Microsoft Silverlight for GTV. However perhaps there is an alternative web site/solution.

    I am going to take this at face value, Bigsouthsports.com changed from Adobe Flash to Microsoft Silverlight and my only suggestion if that is true is to use a device that supports Silverlight, Google TV does not and unless I miss my guess, never will. As far as I know, the only device I own that supports Silverlight video is my Windows laptop.

    Yes Chris's suggestion is probably your best alternative. I looked at the FAQ/help section of that BigSouthSports web site and they say both Microsoft Silverlight and Flash 10.1 are required to view all the streams. I noticed they use the NeuLion Flash plug-in for some of their streams - but unfortunately they switched to Silverlight for the games that are of interest to you.

    If you don't want to buy a laptop (which is your best alternative) - you could try a site such as VIPBox and see if you can find the game there. However these are pirated streams and the video quality isn't the greatest - plus for most people with Google TV it is very difficult (if not impossible) to successfully remove the pop-up ads that block the screen. I'm able to do it but it took a lot of trial & error. In case you want to try it here is the link:
