Live Streaming TV Channel

Hi. I'm wondering if there is any Plex Channel that currently streams live TV stations. There is one on XBMC that I found called Mash Up and I can stream live channels such as FX, NBC, FOX, etc just like I'm browsing on a TV set. Is there anything like this on Plex? Is it possible?

    justin tv live streams pretty well if source is close.

    I think there is Ustream also, but i never know how to find stuff there.

    Live networks do not stream well over wifi...especially with many users.

    Plex cannot transcode live feeds, therefore whether a live channel will work for you is based on which format of live feed is native to your client and the format of the live feed you are trying to access. Therefore live feeds will be hit or miss for everyone. You may have better luck posting in the forums for your client and seeing if others with your client have found live feeds that work for them.

    Many issues and questions can be resolved by reviewing the Plex Support Documentation
    Providing details about your issue, Plex setup, and including log files are important when when asking for help on the forums.
