MTV UK joins the video on demand party
Wednesday 19 April 2006 16:32:00 by Andrew Ferguson

MTV is the latest media provider to add video on demand over broadband to its stable of satellite/cable TV channels. Visit to find out what music, movie and MTV shows can be viewed.

Unfortunately it seems Mac users will miss out, since Digital Rights Management (DRM) is used, and Windows Media Player does not have this support on the Mac, and as development of Microsoft Windows Media Player for the Mac platform has stopped it will not be getting DRM support. The channel also comes with a recommendation for a 0.5Mbps broadband connection to ensure a reasonable picture.

Update Friday 21st April: Change in wording to reflect fact that Windows Media Player on the Mac will not be getting DRM support.
