Abstract

When watching sporting events, DIRECTV@ users may wish to listen to announcers other than those which accompany the cable transmission. Currently, many radio broadcasts of most major sporting events are broadcast over the internet. With most new DIRECTV@ units possessing an internet connection, this invention seeks to use the internet connection to transpose the audio feed from an alternative radio broadcast over the video feed from the DIRECTV@ video broadcast. Possibly, the reverse would also be possible, with supplemental internet video broadcasts being transposed across the audio feed from the DIRECTV@ broadcasts.
