TV On Demand Downloads Kinda Suck

August 9, 2011

Let me start this by saying that I run Windows XP x64 Professional on my main work PC. It’s not the best supported OS but not the least either. Last week I got accepted for BBC’s iplayer beta release. Works on my Mrs C’s laptop, but doesn’t on my main PC. Apparently I don’t have Windows XP installed! Annoying.
So in the search for some TV to watch in the corner of my screen I went to Channel 4 to get their 4OD player. No Dice. Application error.

Why is it so difficult for these guys to just provide streaming video so you can catch up when you’ve missed a show.
Can no-one just copy Youtube? All platforms, all browsers, no downloads, no hassle.
