Watch the Footie on your iPad

Just in case you do not already know about this, if you are in the UK and have an iPad, you have been especially taken care of over at TVCatchup.  This site allows UK users to watch slightly delayed versions of many free-to-air TV channels, including BBC1-4, ITV1-4, Channel 4, More 4, CBeebies, Film 4 and so on.

But what we especially like is the iPad optimised service which looks fantastic onscreen, and turns your iPad with wi-fi access into a proper little portable TV.  Go and check it out now, before the match starts!

Essential app for 16GB iPad owners

Air Video is a powerful app and computer server combination that can stream videos in almost any format to your iPhone and iPod Touch. Like us you probably have a collection of your favourite films and TV shows on your computer. Before Air Video the only getting non compatible videos files onto your iPhone was to transcode them into an approved Apple format. This takes time and obviously eats into your precious device storage space. With Air Video for iPhone and the free Air Video Server installed on your Mac or PC you now have the option to stream video from your computer to your iPhone or iPod Touch.

The big win is that the source video can be in almost any format and at practically any resolution, the free server software does all the transcoding in realtime. Obviously there is a slight pause while the transcoder kicks in, but it's only a few seconds even for a 1080p HD source video.

If you've not tried it yet, you really must. Fortunately there is a free version available, so you have no excuse.

An iPad specific version is in the works, it may not make it in time for the launch on Saturday, but it shouldn't be too far behind. The thought of streaming our HD copy of Blade Runner to Apple's 'Latest Creation' is making us more than a little giddy!
