Know any good OFFICIAL download/streaming TV services?

Having started playing with the Channel 4 "On Demand" service where you can watch stuff like Hill Street Blues and St. Elsewhere, I wondered if there were any others out there? I'm particularly interested in ones that allow you to download the content to watch later.

BBC iPlayer (will/should have download options at some point soon.)

www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer

It's the dog's, especially on the iPod Touch (when it works, that is.)

As much as I don't like the channel ITV have some decent stuff on their website, you will need to use IE to be able to view the programs though.

www.hulu.com started operating in the last few months over here in the states.

Its got a lot of TV shows and films from all kinds of networks and seems to be growing every week. I don't think its much good for anyone in the UK though.

I got Hulu to work using this piece of software. Only problem I had was that it would disconnect and reconnect the router, so it would cut off the episode you were watching, forcing you to reload and skip ahead to where you were.

Something has got screwed up with ITV.com for me. I just get the initial advert looped over and over. I used to get the DRM request but no longer get that.

I tried zattoo last night to watch the footie. It seemed OK but I had to have it really small to remain sharp. No download option with it though.

What I like about the C4 system is that with the addition of one little app you can actually keep the content!

Thanks for the tips, you can leave your email address with hulu and they'll email you once thier service is available to the UK.
