    Depends on the feed. If it's flash based, No.

    its times like these where I wish Sling would come up with a player for Android. I heard they were working on it but they don't really release any info until the product is out. I loved Slinging on my Winmo phones prior to the Droid.

    If you have a tuner card on a pc somewhere, you might be able to use the Orb software to stream the feed to your phone. I think you can even set it up as a web interface if you don't wanna spend the cash on the app.
