    PS 3 TV stream

    Has anyone been able to get espn360 to work on their PS 3? I tried to get it to work tonight and could not. Anyone know what I need to do? I am trying to figure out how to get football games since I cancelled cable, I still have mediacom as my internet provider here in Clive.

    Is there a way I can get games from Fox or ESPN online outside of ESPN360 or justintv? (does that even work?)

    I want to make sure I can watch the ISU games this season!

    You could plug your laptop or computer (if it is close enough) into your tv. I can usually only get CloneZone games on my PS3. Plugging a laptop or computer in works far better though, and it's very easy to do.

    I guess I thought the quality would be better through the PS 3. Am I wrong?

    Re: PS 3 TV stream

    I had some success last year watching on channelsurfing.net, pretty sure it got closed down. The problem I kept having was the browser that ps3 uses is old & it seems none of the streaming sites are compatible. I purchased a midi-hdmi adapter for my macbook & had alot better success. I can now watch on anything that will run on my mac, clonezone, espn360 etc. Picture quality is still real good also. So far thats been my only complaint about the ps3 is the outdated browser.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    The PS3's web browser isn't optimized very well, and it doesn't have much RAM. Your PC or Laptop should be better. You can get 1080p resolution through your PC or Laptop through an HDMI cable which is the best quality you can get.

    Hmm, I will give this a try tomorrow night.

    Thanks for the info so far!
