I'm trying to do this quickly, and google is not helping me. I found a website, watch2stream, that has live coverage of football. I can play it on my MacBook Pro osx 10.6.4 using safari. I would like to play it on the TV, but don't seem to have the right cables. I have hdmi and other USB and video camera connectors, but must need something else? Is there any way to get that website through our Roku box? What would you do? I really want to watch the rose bowl tomorrow, and we don't have satellite tv.

I use Roku for streaming Netflix, etc. However, I am almost positive that Roku does not support connections to Internet Sites per se. Though Roku has the capability to connect to Facebook, Roku does not have a built-in Web Browser. Your best bet may be to try connecting your MacBook Pro to your TV and using it as a monitor. I can't be much help there, but perhaps someone else may see your post in time to offer some help.

Thanks! I thought that might be the case. I will be a little old school and listen to the radio. I think I can get the broadcast using iheart radio (new school)!

If you grab an Apple TV you can Airplay the stream from your Mac to your TV via the Apple TV.

This requires a compatible Mac and Mac OS X 10.8 OR the Airparrot App
