Channel 4 – Joins Inefficient World

Another UK broadcaster is offering its’ service over the internet. I can see hundreds of UK company networks grinding to a halt at 3:30pm every afternoon to the boyish grin of Des Lynam. Hopefully, the cost of putting on this service will be quickly be so prohibitive that ISPs up and down the land start turning on Multi-Cast Streaming for all the main TV stations.

In my opinion, they’d be much better putting some archives of their classic programming, such as The Comic Strip Presents, Drop the Dead Donkey, Father Ted and Black Books online instead. Although to be fair, I'm not sure whether Channel 4 actually owns the broadcast rights.
