    What is the Internet Channel like?

    To those who have purchased the Internet Channel, what is it like?
    Is it simple and functionable like it should?
    Do you need an internet connection to run it? I know that's a silly question, but why would you get the Internet Channel if you have a computer which lets you access the internet in the first place?

    To run the Internet Channel, you will need an ISP already. It's ok, I dont really have a good reason for you that I have it, other than the fact that I can surf the internet on a 50" rather than a 22" (or whatever my monitor is) Havent used it in quite some time though.

    If you already have an ISP and a wireless router, you are good to go. What kind of setup do you have?

    Pfft, I got a Vodafone Mobile Connect on a laptop with Windows Vista, which is probably the worst possible thing if I want to be able to access WiFi at home.

    not worth it at all IMO.

    its awkward, clunky, and costs 5bucks.

    if you have a keyboard to use with it, or dont have easy computer access, or have to share it with a whole bunch of people, then go for it. but 5 bucks is better spent on VC games.

    I think it's worth it. You can surf from your lounge or where your TV is so it's convenient. You can plug in your keyboard for easy use, and it means that if you have a group of people over you can show them stuff direct from your TV rather than disappearing and being anti sociable. Great to browse for local takeaways as well!
