Watching the World Juniors Online

I’m currently attempting to watch the quarter final game between Sweden and the Czech Republic on TSN’s website. It’s really more of a slideshow and about half of the audio feed. My connection is fast enough, I can only assume that there is not enough bandwidth for all the hockey mad Canadians stuck at work (like me). And why aren’t they showing the other quarter final (United States vs. Finland) since that will be Canada’s opponent in the next round?

I watched the replay of Canada and Slovakia and that worked okay, mostly. There were a few hiccups, but nothing major. It was definitely watchable, even if the screen is a little small in a big window.

I would probably be better off with a Slingbox, so I can watch the semifinal from home. Or maybe I could try Orb, since it’s free and I have a tv tuner (that is not supported, unfortunately). I really like the idea of tv on the internet, but I don’t think it’s ready for prime time yet.
