Strangely enough I had just been discussing the reliability of IP networks and the need for a fast track internet to guarantee a TV like experience when the BBC lost the picture to the Euro 2008 semi-final between Germany and Turkey for some minutes.
If that happened on a PC most people, I suspect, would shrug and either reconnect or reboot.
Traditional TV is nowhere as near forgiving. I bet that the duty officer (the guy or gal who take the complaints) at the BBC's phone is ringing like crazy just now. The medium is still the message...
So, there are advantages to Internet TV after all! (More about the fast track web to come)
