For Regular TV's you can link PC's to most TV sets with a cable or wireless link (ask at your PC shop) or use one of the latest Set Top Boxes that allow you to use your TV to fully browse the internet (like a PC) and play standard video material (eg: MP4, WMV formats). Important: Set top boxes are not allways compatible with industry standards, many media companies have been rushing to launch set top boxes that lock out other providers of content and favour their own selected material.

More About Women's Football TV
Women's Football TVs' current primary purpose is to promote the women's game and demonstrate the high quality of play. In time this is intended to encourage game attendance, fan interest, sponsors revenue, advertisers and ultimately some share of revenue for participating clubs as the women's game economy develops.
Help with SLOW INTERNET ConnectionsUnfortunately a number of people are provided with poor quality connections by their ISP's (Internt Service Provider), not all ISP's provide the same thing although it may appear to have the same name and specification as others.
If it is the ISP at fault it can be a simple matter to move to a better one even if you've signed up for a long time, the connection may have been mis-sold to you, the important point, is the ISP failing to provide the promissed service? and how can you easily find out.
Most major ISP's (eg: BT, Virgin, BE, O2) are easily able to automatically test your phone line and tell you in advance the speed you will get, so ask the question or find the test button on their website and print the results in case you need to claim later, don't listen to the inflated claims in the advertising, very few people if any get the advertised speeds.
Some ISPs do not have a local presence, especially in rural small town areas, many simply sell you another providers product. When switching supplier, you can end up buying exactly the same thing back with the previous problems, the only thing that changes is the name of the supplier.
Beware of the so called Unlimited Downloads claims, some big ISPs claims are false. One big ISP approached us (Sep 2010) offering "up to 25Mbps" and "Totally Unlimited... ...video and film downloads", but it was a con... it cost 25% more, the line test worked out half our current speed and the hard to find small print revealed movie size downloads resulted in a speed cut of 75% for five hours.
One of the consistently good ISPs we've found that offers a genuine fully unlimted high speed connection is BE (BeThere.co.uk), we've tested one major city and one small rural town location over 4 years and got full service 24/7,
If your line test promissed 5Mbps (ie: 5000kbps or 5 million bits per second) or more you are entitled to get reasonably near this when there is no internet congestion (eg: off peak times), you can easily run connection speed tests at any time using the speed test link below.
The following image shows an actual speed test of an unlimited 8Mbps connection from a leading ISP (cost 19.50 UK pounds per month Sep 2006) at a peak time (7pm UK), this is almost 70% of the promissed speed at peak time all the way from New York City USA.

Some ISP's deliberately restrict your available speed, this can be due to monthly use limits being exceded when you do not have an unlimited service or it can just be they wish to maximise profits and cut the available speed (some seem to assume users will be too dumb to realise what is going on). High performance unlimited internet connection packages are relatively cheap if you look around, 24Mbps is already available in some areas for as little as 20 UK pounds per month, which puts some of the 2Mbps packages (12 times slower) costing around 15 UK pounds per month into perspective (prices correct at Aug 2010).
The rush to Video On Demand (VOD) by new players like the BBC, Virgin, BT, Sky and others (we've already been providing VOD for 10 years) presents its own problems of draining available internet speed and a conflict of interest for those who provide both internet connections and Video On Demand, there's already evidence suggesting that some are giving their own VOD services priority, thus slowing their competitors VOD and reducing the quality available at the customers internet connection. We hope Ofcom will stamp out any such practice.
It is important to keep your TV / Set Top Box or Computer System and media player up to date by downloading the available updates, a missing update could stop you playing enhanced video content.
Somtimes the cause of slow internet connection performance can be your computer operating system, eg: MS Windows. For example, years ago, many people changing to a new Windows XP computer suddenly found their internet connection speed slowed drasticaly (compared to Windows 98SE). The problem in many cases was Microsoft (the Windows software maker) had changed Windows XP without telling users that they would need to change special hidden settings within Windows XP to get their original connection performance, it took months to find this out, once done speed increased 400% back to normal.
