    There are numerous people out there advertising "free sky" on your PC.All for a 1 off ultra low fee.......
    Apparantly its all 100% legal !! It all sounds too good to be true.......
    but it is tempting ..

    What experiences have people have had with this?

    What do you get ?

    Is the quality any good on a 42" plasma ?

    Does it mess with your broad band download limit ?

    What problems are there ?

    How does it compare with the xx gbp a month sky subscription....

    If it seems too good to be true then it is.

    If you've ever watched streaming video over the internet you'll know it's nowhere near good enoughto watch on a regular basis, certainly not on a 42" plasma. It would certainly have an effect on your download limit as its pretty high bandwidth stuff.

    At the moment it's a curiosity at best, I'm afraid.

    I paid the grand fee of £4.49 for a year membership of 'PPLive' just to watch the England game last week that was not on terrestial, and to watch some of the tennis... :eek:

    What a disaster....... some of the streams were sort of watchable in a little window in the corner of a pc monitor, but I certainly couldn't sit back and enjoy the match.
