    "even worse idea than the original iPlayer was?"

    I think the iPlayer is brilliant tbh. Took to long to happen, but enjoy watching shows on it never the less!

    The iPlayer software is pretty dire, peer2peer? No thanks! The idea and the web streams are great for some lunchtime catchup however.
    Surely someone has itunes working on linux since mac osx is a unix os itself?

    If it's free then fair enough, but if it's not they can sod off.

    Just restrict what upload it uses and everything is dandy. I don't mind giving 10k of my upload to it.

    Using the online iplayer service is kinda cool, being able to watch tv shows on the net is a nice thing, u dont have to download it etc, it just works.
    If Apple and BBC were to offer a free service similar to iplayer but allwoing u to store movies for a few days on your ipod, this would be a clear winner! if there were to offer this kinda service for a very small monthly fee then i would use it, but if there to charge you for each thing you download and its only 'rented' then i wont want this,
