Streaming Election Night Broadcast TV?

The magic incantation is…

mplayer -playlist

I'm running it on linux, and watching CNN right now.

if it runs in linux it should run on your windows and mac boxen just fine. some other excellent suggestions from slashdotters:

  • AM or your local FM NPR station if you can pull it in.
  • via shortwave radio from BBC or Radio Sierra-Leon
  • …head to your local sports bar. They’ll very likely have the election results on, and they have a reasonable supply of alcohol as well, which will come in handy no matter who wins.
