    ok guys for anyone who is on UTV Internet. i found a neat trick that will let you watch shows on the BBC iplayer and aslo on itv.com and listen to 5 live commentary on the web.

    Just change your proxy server to the northern ireland one which is

    ni-cache.utvinternet.com Port 80

    How to configure Internet Explorer to use a proxy server

    Slightly related is Joost

    www.joost.com

    Its an online Tv station..........lots of repeats and the performance can be poor.

    It did have the Sarah Connors Chronicles on it last year.

    Worth a passing glance also.
