    I don't know if most broadcast networks do live streaming as do most terrestrial radio stations. I've never heard of such a thing, but that doesn't really mean much.

    I think your only options would be to either get a tuner card for your rig and hook it up to a kickass antenna and amp (the amp is just as important as the antenna btw) or stream the shows you want to watch from their website after the broadcaster has posted them.
