The way stream does "Live TV" right now is pretty dumb as it actually schedules a recording on the TiVo and then streams that. So you can download the still recording show and then let it buffer for a while and start watching, but as soon as you reach the end of the recording playback will stop and you will get a "Please Wait" prompt. So not really feasible to watch live or near live which means poor quality streaming is really your only option.
If you really use Live TV a lot then Slingbox gives you *much* better streaming quality given the same bandwidth and Slingbox clients are available on much wider variety of devices as well as any browser, so an option to consider. Having both TiVo Stream and a Slingbox gives both options at your disposal so you can choose the one that best fits your needs at the time.
Roamio Pro, Elite, Premiere
Cox - Motorola CableCards & TAs
Slingbox 350 via TiVo Mini & TiVo Stream for remote viewing
