Streaming HDTV via IP is here to stay...

Playing from Blake Whitman on Vimeo.

If you wondered how long it would still take to watch HDTV full screen on your big-ass flat PC/Mac monitor, try this clip. Then click on 'Playing' to move to a site that does the same but in high def. When you are there make sure you have the HD button 'on'. Then, experience the same clip in quasi HD quality. Amazing, huh? So the answer to the question 'how long' above is: 'Not long!'. Sounds kinda Martin Luther King Jr, innit?

Crazy to think about but I reckon to some of us, live HDTV will come via IP faster than via our normal cable programming. That's what you get if you are stupid enough to live in Central Europe.
