This morning's Metro quoted Roger Mosey, the BBC's Director of Sport, and he said that a TV licence is required to watch games online.

Great idea from the BBC, just a shame our ISP's usage restrictions will basically rule out watching... :roll:

If its standard unicast then I guess it will be around 50kbps which is around 25-30 MB per hour depending on overheads.

The publicly advertised Multicast streams are at various rates from 128Kbps to 1Mbps...... but Multicast doesn't work on PN with no fix date as its an experiment and not a priority.

50kbps for radio was that?
The BBC news coverage of the terror stuff going on now is streaming at 225kb/s for that tiny screen in the corner of the desktop.
This equates to about 100MB an hour, give or take.
