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!
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!)
