The Beeb on Broadband
Some days the Internet blows my mind. I was looking for background music from some other continent. I perused Broadcast-live and Live365 for genre and language. I tried a few Dutch, French, and German stations, but when I clicked on the the TV sectoin of Broadcast-live and selected BBC World at 300kbps. It runs in Windows Media player and is nearly perfect looking at 250 px across and not too bad at full screen (1280px across.) with great sound quality. I was able to watch Click Online's review of CeBit.
The direct link to the BBC World Internet broadcast is http://idirector.media.ibeam.com/netshow/v2/onair/BBC/BBCworld_300k.asx (Windows Media Player 300kbps).
