If given the go-ahead this will mean the end of broadcast TV as we know it. Can't say that I myself am impressed with the idea, but others may be looking forward to it. What say you? TC. Lords help us!
How is internet TV ever to be achieved throughout the country when the vast majority of the population cannot D/L Youtube video without it buffering. I for one cannot see high speed broadband reaching my area within the next 10 years if ever. I don't live in a particularly remote location, just a bit off the beaten track. it is typical of Westminster, if you live north the Severn/Trent you do not count. Everthing is for the southeast.
I too can D/L through Sky but in my case I have to D/L the film etc. some considerable time before viewing. Live TV is impossible. The funds allocated to upgrade to high speed internet at the moment will only cover a small fraction of the country. It is going to need at least 10 times as much if not more to give an adequate service.
