    Telewest to show all World Cup Games in HD


    Although satellite broadcaster Sky scored an early goal with the widely-publicised announcement that it will be transmitting all of the BBC's World Cup matches in high-definition (HEXUS.headline), its HD rival, cable-operator Telewest, has banged three in the net, having signed up to show in HD all of ITV's matches - on top of those from the BBC - and on-demand high-def programmes from Channel 4.
    Read the full story in this HEXUS.headline - and let us know here your thoughts on this latest HD development.

    Since they are boasting a high speed connection why can't they allow me to use my PC to get the TV? Why make me buy an expensive box....

    Um, well, I think you'll find they want LOADS a money from you - it's how businesses work at the moment.

    Indeed - but delivering in to a PC is a more cost effective thing for them - no boxes to service or warranty.

    I can understand why though....

    Totally agree, this now makes much more sense for people with large computer monitors.
