Default TV programmes on Broadband

The BBC is threatening to offer most or even all their programmes on demand via Broadband. The techies at BSG Broadband Stakeholders Group are jumping up and down about this, saying that the Internet was not designed for this traffic.

I have cable TV (and broadband) which is fibre optic to the local junction box and co-ax from there to my set, but I still get anoying delays while the cable gets round to delivering the past TV programmes on-demand.

And the cable TV has poor synchronisation between sound and vision, the spoken word is just a fraction late with the lip movements which makes it difficult sometimes to understand what the idiots are rabbitting on about.

I have not been at all impressed on my PC with the video at 2mb. What speed to you need to get full screen TV? Germany has a VDSL service at 50mbps, and Japan and South Korea have 1Gbps if you install fibre. Sounds expensive either way.
