Broadband BBC?

Hey, is it possible to watch BBC News, for example, in broadband quality? Seems that no matter what links I click to watch all I get is a poor quality narrowband feed.

Does my IP (84.92.32.xx) need registering with BBC or something? TIA.

Broadband BBC?

All of PlusNets broadband IP's are already registered with BBCi so you should be able to get the high bandwidth feeds.

Unless PlusNet have introduced a new IP range and have forgotten to register it with BBCi amd you happen to be on it.

I'm on 80.229.x.x and can access all the highspeed feeds from BBCi but not all broadcasts are highspeed. The BBC1 lunchtime news available from the main BBC news website is only transmitted at 34Kbs

When i first used the BBC Broadband news thingy it was pants quality. But I had forgot to set up Real Player for my connection. It was on 28.8k lol. Could be that.
