i think you'd be better off trying to buy a few used cell phones with MHL ports or some old Xbox 360s or PS3s that can play back the sources you're looking for (like NFL and ESPN).

Don't those types of plugins use torrent type technology, so technically you're not just streaming a movie, but uploading/sharing/hosting part of it yourself?
