    Until the UK and other large consuming countries such as the US bring unlimited data caps in as standard I don't think that these services will take off just yet.

    Streaming around your home is not dependent on broadband data caps, just the terrible packet loss of wireless. Wireless n just makes it worse, even though you get higher throughput.

    "Experimenting"? Does this mean they've got their hands on a prototype Wii U? :)

    Oh? Would you say it's better to use G rather then N then providing you have good range on both?

    Yay?

    I'd love to sacrifice my wonderful screen and peripherals to play on a tablet that's lacking proper control interfaces connected to a TV of lower resolution, quality and worse pitch than my monitor.

    Especially as most PC games don't allow splitscreen or similar.

    The only way I see this as useful is if you're able to run two or more of one game on the main PC and stream one of those to a less powerful device.

    The 5GHz range can carry more information, but drops off quite rapidly over distance through objects (because it is a higher frequency) while the 2.4GHz carries less but goes a little further. Either way they are both pretty terrible inside anything larger than a flat.

    Hm, I'm going through a desk, 2 walls and a floor at a distance of around 8 meters. I really wish it was an option for me to LAN.

    It would be like "StreamMyGame" but for "free".
    Interesting :)

    I think I must be missing the point here somewhere.
    Stream a game from your PC to another device, but you have to have your PC on anyway, so why not just use that?
    you could wireless kb, mouse but that's just moving clutter from one room to another, use wireless joypad or tablet controls? no thank you.
    I can't think of any real advantage to this
    you lose all advantages of playing on a PC and gain?
    It's not like it could even add to the social aspect like playing on a TV with a console does because PC's just don't really do split screen multiplayer stuff.
    seems pointless, but maybe that's just me.

    Pointless.

    How is it going to stream? Wireless - no too choppy and too much lag. So therefore you will need some sort of wire.

    Why not just get a long conventional DVI cable and connect it from the PC to the TV. As for keyboard and mouse. Now THAT would be more interesting.

    disagree, wireless-N or better should be able to offer little to no lag.
