    I hope they chuck in E4 too, as I tend to watch it more than Channel 4.

    WOOT! C4 FTUU!

    Not that I watch TV that much but C4 usually does the foreign films that are subbed late at night.

    If I'm understanding this correctly all you can do is watch programming whilst it's being shown on TV. This seems a lot less useful than what the Beeb does by allowing you to view programes after they've been shown.

    Any1 know what the Quality will be like for streaming services? The BBC world cup footage has been pretty nice (especially when in the office, now i have a use for dual monitors :) )though suffers a little from buffering issues and sometimes the ball simply disapears due to its quality. In the end, its free, and thank the beeb for it.

    cool we need higher bandwidth to use streaming video properly though.. I would say at least 25mb/s for decent quality.

    ? Should'nt be that much surely. For viewing on the pc, anything around a 1000kbps wouild be fine with me, as im not looking for a substitute from watching the tv or a dvd.

    Though i only have 1mb/s download speeds I think that streaming it while im not downloading will give me some pretty sweet visuals but not up to full quality because of the connection speed but im not looking for a DVd quality broadcast...
