The games are also being broadcast in Playchess and can be viewed by installing the free client here:
http://cumnor-chess-server.com/livechess/Playchess-Live.php is another live broadcast option.
Just click "live games" button then click "clear all" then click "Grouping" then "result" then highlight game and click "Watch games" button. Seems the only way to watch the games you want to watch. There is also chatwing.
