Are you after a website to stream TV live, or a TV tuner card that'll receive the available channels either from over the air, satellite or cable and show you live TV that way?

You might be best getting some kind of freeview box, or a monitor capable of doing PiP & Freeview and seeing your desktop at the same time as whats on.

I'm sure there are services, but I doubt they'd be cheap.

There are none. That stuff is copyrighted by the tv networks, they don't let 3rd party websites or programs stream their programming live.

Yes,Justin.TV manages to have live PPV sporting events on,if you can stand herky-jerky motion,stoppages,loss of links and delays. Usually the streams come from Russia or Philippines or wherever where there isn't a PPV system and they are broadcast free in those places (?)
Seems like the PPV rights holders are fighting real-time battles trying to get the streams taken down as the event takes place.
