    I have been reading lately about the rise of a new technology which enables S.Ps to send movies etc to its customers' PC so they can view it on their TV. I think iinet's Netflix is one. Can you please tell me how this works and what is required to achieve this?

    I have netflix and there area a lot of good movies in there (except for the new releaseses). You have to pay monthly by using a credit card and they charge you depending on how many computers or TV's you want to watch them on. I have for 4 computers and I only pay approx 11 dollars per month. All you need is a good internet connection speed.

    Thanks for your quick reply, Texasbullet - but is there any hardware or software required to get the data from the PC or does Netflix send it direct to the PC?

    You only need a web browser.

    You get it directly into your PC. All you need is to register your name,emai address and Credit card number (to be billed automatically) and no extra hardware required. If you want to connect it into your Digital TV then you may need to buy an HDMI cable or VGA cable, but this is optional for you.
