    Blocking the BBC World Cup Video Streams.

    The BBC have posted a page that lists all the urls the world cup games will be streamed from. Block them if you wish.

    BOFH ahoy... If you block them, you will get the "Why is this blocked!" - if you give your Squid proxy a bit of a prod using delay pools, you can just cap the bandwidth to the URLs to something painfully unwatchable. The site remains accessible and many people will just assume "the internets are too slow today".

    Not that I'd do that of course.

    *cough*

    There was that thing about there being an appropriate TV license being needed too on the BBC tech news page a few days ago.

    Another valid reason to block them

    Re: Blocking the BBC World Cup Video Streams.

    We can't even get the streams here, as the BBC say that we're not in the UK. Apparently our ISP isn't in their allowed list...

    Oh well (she says, glancing at the TV that the NM has installed in the office)...
