I see so much fail in this. We already have Freesat, Freeview, Freeview HD, Sky HD, Virgin cable etc. We already have too many boxes to plugin (Game consoles included). They repeat the same shows over and over (Mostly crap reality shows and X-Dancing-With-Cooks). It’s complete shite. BBC iPlayer is sorta OK (It would be great if they let you stream HD content properly with no DRM crap). They just need to put all the content on one site.
This is a limited market. About half of those interested in this live in areas where they are lucky if they get 1mbs broad band, most get half this.
Proper broad band will have to be supplied throughout the country before the large profits they’re looking for can be realised.
