Live Tv from web sites? (1 Viewer)

I'm looking for a solution to watch live web-based TV in MediaPortal. In my case, a good example would be the feeds from Swisscom. This serves two purposes: 1. I can watch TV when the satellite feed fails (eg in a storm) and 2. I can pick up a few channels that are encrypted via satellite (e.g. French TV).

I thought this would be something easy to set up in MP, but my searches through these forums didn't give me an easy answer. I do not have a proper DVB-IP/IPTV feed, so this doesn't work directly in the TV setup. I thought the OnlineVideos plugin would give me what I want, did this appears to be video downloads only, not live TV.

Am I missed something obvious? Can anyone help?
