      TVcatchup

      From the site:
      TVCatchup is a new service which lets you watch live television online. There are currently 15 channels to choose from, it's totally legal and absolutely free!
      This was around a year or so ago then it disappeared. Now seems to be relaunched with just live TV only, whereas before I think you could save programmes to watch later.

      Claims to be completely legal. Quality of broadcast is excellent on my PC (needs latest Flash player plugin V10 installed - Firefox or IE).

      Thought I'd flag it up in case anyone is interested.

      Oh - that's a shame. It's easily the best quality feed I've seen.

      I noticed it said "checking your location" before connecting but I thought that would be to ensure it was via a UK ISP, not for specific ISPs. Looking into it further it seems that the ISP has to have a peering connection with TVcatchup's service provider NetrinoUK Ltd.

      Wonder if Connect customers can get on it as they're really BT?

      I would be surprised it this was totally legal as I can't imagine the likes of the BBC would want their channels to be streamed in this manor. Just because a website says it is doesn't always mean it is. I am however happy to be proven wrong.

      If you sign-up via a peered ISP (I used one which is using BT MAXadsl) it then works fine on SKY.
      Looks like they only check the ISP on sign-up. (It will probably change now I've posted this!)
