I've not owned a broadcast TV in more than 7 years. For a lot of that
time, I just didn't watch the stuff.

Since the BBC iPlayer (I'm in the UK) moved to a format I can view on
Fedora (OK.. Flash, so still not ideal! :) I find I watch rather a lot
of TV on my living room PC!

Nowadays, Chanel4 and 5 also have online content I can watch happily on

It's only ITV that is using silverlight or whatever it's called - and
that's OK because all their output is junk anyway! :-D

On a good day, with the wind in the right direction and the gods of ECC
smiling on my DSL line I can even watch live HD content.
