DRM-less would be lovely (not short clips like on You Tube)
I don't do DRM.

If they could put up a site where I could have their content, it couldn't be in Flash for no DRM.

Anyway what most people need is a remote cortrol or a TVlike experience not using the keyboard with larger text. For free of course.

Why not Flash?
While using Flash means that you aren't downloading the content, it doesn't make it a bad thing! It's actually more convenient for the majority of users, and in this case it's not a bad thing.

Now if this were a download service, DRM might be something to consider having or not having at that point. If it's just streaming, I don't see an issue.

This is not TV!
You watch TV on a television - not a PC. We really need to get mmore set-top boxes that stream video to a TV over the internet.

This IS television
How about being able to watch television wherever and when every you would like. Not being hampered by a lack of cable, broadcast signal or internet connection. The hookup is coming and very soon bandwidth will be come a non-issue.
