Using LiveStation, PC users can watch live, uninterrupted television from the comfort of their computer chairs. Developed by a London-based company known as Skinkers using technology from Microsoft Research, LiveStation is a way to stream live television content over a peer-to-peer network and use Silverlight to display that content content on the client's system. "This product allows you to steam live television on a computer over a peer-to-peer network, which means you don't need to use all the traditional server infrastructure and bandwidth associated with streaming," said Matteo Berlucchi, co-founder of Skinkers.
