    Zattoo is a proprietary peer-to-peer Internet Protocol Television system ("P2PTV") with current focus on European channels, licensed content, and Digital Rights Management. It is developed by researchers and programmers based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, with corporate offices in San Francisco and Zurich. The player is based on H.264 (FFmpeg), and is Mac OS X, Linux, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista compatible. It needs a minimum downstream bandwidth of 500 kbit/s on the client side.
    The service is currently restricted to Switzerland, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Norway, United Kingdom, Belgium and France, but is expected to expand to other European countries, (with Austria and Poland being at the top of that list[7]) then to Canada and the U.S. while adding fee-based channels to its list. It is also designed to only allow specific audiences to watch specific channels, thanks to geolocation of the IP address assigned to the user's computer (hence the restriction to a few countries for the time being). This restriction prevents, in theory, British users from watching French channels. While BBC World is available to Swiss IP addresses, it is not available to British ones.

    i think sopcast is the best..............

    watch all premier league games on ben1 and also champions league games!!!

    What's the catch - do you know if they bombard you with advertising? Has anyon tried this service?

    Also - 4 on demand and BBC I player seems to make the value of this site somewhat less...

    Also they obviously haven't done many checks into the uk market as there must be a system to check to see if you have a tv license or not.

    I have moved this to the misc forum as we generally do not allow downloads as deals/freebies. Thanks.

    Certificate error when signing up, certificate was given for a different site.

    Ok to proceed or does it sound dodgy?

    There was a news item about this yesterday, can't remember where but it's as legal as downloading the programs from bit torrent etc. Not that many care of course

    I think you do if it's being broadcast live from the uk, ie a proper channel, I guess it doesn't apply to all channels.
