    Default BBC streaming live mobile TV(5800widget)

    BBC streaming live mobile TV (beta)

    Only for UK residents (it seems), the BBC has now started streaming live TV for compatible handsets (currently the Nokia N96 and 5800) at mobile resolutions, 24 hours a day. The quality's currently not brilliant, seemingly a frame size of 176 by 144 pixels, though RealPlayer on S60 phones will sample this up to fit, of course. But - it is TV, it is the real deal and you get the full range of BBC channels. including those normally only available via Freeview or cable/Sky. Screenshot proof, link, handy S60 widget and tips, all below.

    You'll get an informational message about having to use Wi-Fi, which is fair enough. Hit 'Continue' and you'll see the channel list, as shown below. Hit a channel and you're watching live TV. Note that RealPlayer will show "Buffering 0%" for about 15 seconds before playback starts. This is normal.

    It's because of licensing issues. We in the UK pay a license to be able to watch BBC, and therefore it is only available to those in the UK
