Very odd that it only works with sudo. A git clone this morning of the 
sbsOnDemand script, ./setup.py install, and I'm able to download and 
watch SBS! (No sudo other than the setup.py install).

$ uname -a

Fairly update Ubuntu 11.10. I have 3.0.0-16 installed, but haven't yet 
rebooted, so might reboot and see if I get similar problems to you. Only 
thing I can think of with network traffic and needing sudo, is something 
like selinux preventing the script from connecting to the network and 
hence the error?
