Default TV Over The Internet

Hi All

My brother is living in student house with very poor reception (an no
realistic way of improving it for all sorts of complicated reasons).
Is there any way of watching Freeview or even analogue TV over an
Internet connection rather than an aerial?

Install a Slingbox at another house that has freeview reception,
a broadband connection and co-operative owners that will allow
both to be left switched on permanently.

Then use a PC with the Slingbox software installed at the
student house to watch TV on the PC via broadband.

Picture quality will depend on the available bandwidth of
both broadband connections.

You'd be best advised to use a VPN between sites, as this would be
contrary to copyright laws etc etc.

Also you would need SDSL to enjoy Broadcast quality pictures. Even then
you would only be able to stream one channel, not a multiplex.

Have you though of the Nebula electronics PC cards, as they are natively
able to stream Freeview over Ethernet. You would also be able to change
channels over the web interface.
