HomeChoice: TV over IP for Brits
Engadget has an interesting article discussing two new services for downloading television shows over Internet. The first is TVTonic.com which is a free service for downloading various television broadcasts including movietrailers and news clips.
Homechoice, available in Great Britain, sounds like an interesting service. When you sign up for their service, they'll pipe 80 television channels over your phone line, a high speed internet service, and access to some television content like music videos. The trick for getting all this data downloaded over copper is that they only send down the television channel that you are currently viewing (as opposed to sending all the channels down the pipe like cable). Still, subscribers need a 2Mbit connection to make it all work.
