Hi,

There's an excellent service in the UK called channel 4 on demand, which carries classic programs like Father Ted and Peep Show. On the site it claims that you need windows media player 10 (ewww) to watch it, but I wasn't sure if there was a plugin that would open it up to boxee.

keep up the good work!

Just for reference, everyone seems to know the BBC iPlayer, but there are competing systems from the other big UK TV channels: ITV Catchup (http://www.itv.com/catchup/) and 4 On Demand (http://www.channel4.com/4od).

Sadly, ITV Catchup uses Microsoft Silverlight and 4OD just plain doesn’t work on anything except Windows.

I can't even get 4OD to work on Windows. That thing is junk. I have sent them abusive emails about it. :D

Now that 4od catchup is mac-compatible, any chance of adding it?

The Channel 4 service now works on Ubuntu Linix! I seems to use flash player.
