Streaming from BBC

I used to be able to stream audio/video from the BBC using JetAudio (not RealPlayer). Just tried to check on the ManU v Arsenal match and nothing. No Audio, no video. Only a minute by minute text commentary. Although my JetAudio is set up to read Real files .ram .ra etc I don't appear to see/hear them anymore.

Working fine for me using RealAlternative.

Do you use a proxy server? If so, it may be based outside of UK so you may be blocked.

Diodorus Siculus, is Real Alternative different from RealPlayer?

Proxy server? not as far as I know. I am on NTL cable BB at 2mb. I don't like anything Real because of it's intrusiveness, which is why I went for jetaudio.

Can you give me a link to download RealAlternative?

Realalternative is indeed an alternative to having to install anything from - there is also an alternative to QuickTime and it is pretty good too.

Diodorus Siculus, thank you mate. Got it. Now listening to the ManU v Arsenal commentary. No video though.
