Only if you have a TV with a slingbox *in the U.S.* that you could then access from Singapore.

Find a friend in the U.S. with cable, purchase a Slingbox and ship to your friend, ask them to connect to their cable box with internet connection. Install the client and you can now watch U.S. programming from the comforts of your office or home PC. Just make sure you have good connection, ADSL is best.

I am planning to catch baseball in the mornings...at work....until I figure out how to save to my HD for later viewing.
