    AT&T does seem to allow Sling Player mobile to stream over 3G on other devices (such as Blackberry). Also, when Sling first announced the player for iPhone, the noted WiFi streaming only at Apple's request.. Maybe we have more than one target for that over ripe fruit?

    glad I do not own iPhone

    slow

    Snooker's popularity rose hugely in the UK - as it was an efficient way of colour TV.

    What we need now is to find a sport that is most bandwidth effective thru as little happening as possible. Golf ? Cricket ? Manchester City ?
