I'm hopefully getting BT Broadband soon, and I was wondering if you can view BBC World clearly over the internet? At the moment, on a 56K Modem, I can only get sound, or very jumpy pictures at the most. Will I get smoothish video with Broadband?

Yeah... though don't expect it to be perfect.

I use Telewest Broadband's blueyonder broadband service which is really quite good. Don't get BTopenworld!!!

The picture runs much much smoother than on a 56K obviously because it's quicker, but it occasionally gets a little jumpy, with the picture freezing etc. Very occasionally the sound also cuts out. This has more to do with the speed at which they stream the media rather than the speed at which you're downloading it.
