Good evening,

Maybe your PC or TV is slightly ancient?

Do you have a smartphone?

If you can get the net on your smartphone, you can watch on YouTube or iPlayer . . . you can then cast from google chrome to your big screen with Chromecast, providing the TV has an hdmi port for such a device

Currently I have 15GB/month data allowance on a mobile wifi dongle.

This is mobile data, I don't have a landline/fibre and 15GB barely covers Windows update/oracle update/Linux update etc.

And a bit of bike porn; the "gcn network" :-)

Watching anything over mobile data does seem to mean record and watch later and pay a heavy premium!

I think that I get your point, but I am not into streaming, FE took the event away from an easy to use/record channel and assumed that the audience is "connected".

Some of the world is "connnected" in that way, but I, living in the UK where it might be assumed that I am, I am not and have no intent to be. :-)

Way back in the UK a massive amount of effort was put into the changing from black and white T.V. to colour T.V. because it was understood that the change was big.

Before digital, in the U.K. colour T.V. was broadcast as intensity (which would drive a black and white T.V.), red and blue every over line, a PAL delay line would simulate the colour info by passing the signal through a very long piece of wire and green was assumed from the difference.

Now broadcasters assume that the consumer will pay for new hardware, expletive deleted off!
