C-Span

C-Span has for many years now offered streams for c-span1, 2 and 3 which is awfully nice of them I think, you can access them with:

mplayer -playlist rtsp://play.rbn.com/?url=cspan/g2cspan/live/cspan1-g2.rm
mplayer -playlist rtsp://play.rbn.com/?url=cspan/g2cspan/live/cspan2-g2.rm
mplayer -playlist rtsp://play.rbn.com/?url=cspan/g2cspan/live/cspan3-g2.rm

Note, this is the rm stream, which is of much higher quality, in particular concerning audio. They also have a wmv stream, but it's much lower quality (Well in my opinion anyway) (:
