    Since most of us here are from Scotland and happen to like Tech TV and since it isn't ran with such wonderful people as the BBC maybe you could get a live stream up ZD?.

    Great TV station I watch it all the time (when I'm not on the computer). Screensavers is a great show.

    sorry i did'nt make myself clear i meant to get it to a server then broadcast it from there since datacenter bandwidth cheaper than for residential bandwidth in most cases other than cable etc...

    True, but all the cable channels do ( hgtv, food ch, disc, E!, travel ch, etc. ). It's still a very informative channel.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that show. You're right about the other guy, although the other guy isn't as good it's still a good show.

    Anybody in the UK (or spain!) watch "Game Network" - very, *very* bad TV. All the intros are done in powerpoint, they have about 3 presenters, only one of whom is english but they all try anyway and most of the content is 2 minute clips of really old games - pacman etc.
