Unless it had a tv antenna built in or a satellite receiver, no it wouldn't be possible. Unless they did it over wifi which would be pretty pointless.

  • I'm sure you must have heard about Nintendo's new Wii / DSi video service in Japan ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_no_Ma ), but that only lets you download the shows to your DSi and then watch them off the system memory or SD card.
  • It sounds like you're looking for directly streaming television on the go, which is less likely. If the system were to pick up digital signals directly, it would require an expansion adapter of some sort, and there really isn't even a slot for something like that on the new hardware.
  • If it were to stream movies off the internet, you could only use it on the go where you had a consistent WiFi signal, and even then I don't know what level of quality could be maintained streaming to the DSi, since it would be a difficult balance between greater compression, which allows for more movie data over less bandwidth, and the available processing power, since decompressing via a codec takes a fair amount of power for a little device like the DSi.

Our best hope is something like Japan's video service, although I doubt we'll see anything like that here in the near future.

I want it to act as a video player though, so you can watch movies and such on it. :p

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...

Real time, no

But in Japan, there is an app you can download on the DSi where you can download TV shows from the Wii video channel, but you can only download 30 mins at a time, and only one file at a time.
