BBC1 streaming (all legal too)

The BBC is now streaming its terrestrial channels and News 24 on Realplayer
as they're transmitted in the UK, if that interests you...

There is a warning that some shows may not be available outside the UK due
to rights issues though. But Dr Who fans can but try!

Well, it's working here in Canada. I'm watching "Just for Laughs".
In terms of "Rights Issues" this technology is quite legal here ...
CRTC approved it years ago ... though the US broadcast industry had
a bird when a Canadian company tried to start streaming all the local
OTA signals (including CBS, NBC, ABC) over the Internet. Perfectly legal
under Canadian law, but the legal implications in the USA were too much,
even though they had taken moves to block US IP addresses.

I wonder how long this will stay up.

I heard about this earlier today. It's an interesting idea and will
allow DW fans outside the UK to watch DW if it's shown online.

One thing that did jump up was that would a US network buy a show if
it had and was being premiered online? Also it does once again raise
serious issues regarding the licence fee and who pays it and who
doesn't.

I couldn't even get the original link to work, and I have the latest
Realplayer installed. It just timed out. Is the link still active (I
just wanted to watch some BBC 1) for those of you in the UK? Can
someone post the link to the page that mentions they are streaming BBC
1?

The stream has been closed down. It turns out that it was never
supposed to be accessed from outside of the UK. Here is the link to
the page that lists what streams are available, however.

Oh, happy day! I can't thank you enough for posting this link. I
just watched the new Doctor Who for the first time. It came across as
a slideshow with a soundtrack, but that could be either that my
machine isn't fast enough for this connection or a whole bunch of
people were watching with me. Anyway, it was miles better than
nothing. Now I might actually be able to take part in the discussions
of the new program. Thanks again.

hopefully it is never pulled. The future need not take a step backwards.
Still, my VHS would lose out.
