    I have an iPad 1, and I would like to know if I can watch live streaming from a tv station that is broadcasting a live event.
    Example: Presidential debates, appreciate any advice thank you.

    Yes is the simple answer, I can do this in the UK on my iPad 1 using apps like FilmOn, BBC iPlayer, etc. you'll need to check out similar apps for your area.

    Hi there..

    I just deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of this one. Please do not do this since it makes it hard for other members to read and help you of there are multiple threads of the same topic present. It is also against forum rules.

    Thank you.
    Ski..

    good day, firstly, I am new to this ipad stuff, and a bit of a technophobe. I want to be able to view a few fixed webcams that display images 24/7 on my ipad, can some explain to me as though I were a 3 year old, a reasonable, but not expensive app which will enable me to do this, thank you.

    Hi there and welcome,

    I can't tell you exactly how to do it but this app allows you to add your own ip/network webcams

    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/live-cams-pro-ip-camera-viewer/id428145132?mt=8

    It has good review scores so it should be worth a look.

    If you don't already have the webcams, many manufactures now have their own apps and it's all included in the webcam price.
