    Does anyone know of any alternative (and cheaper) options for streaming from my iPod touch (and my sister's iPhone) to an HDTV? We already have services such as Sky and BTVision so I don't see the point of shelling £100 for a service that I don't need or want, I just want to be able to stream to my telly...


    Cheers

    I don't know of another streaming option, but you can get a cord that will let you connect the iPod to the TV.

    If you don't need to actually stream it and can stand using cables then this would work for you.

    Can't you just buy an Airport express and hook that up instead?

    I was thinking the OP meant that he wanted video too..the Express can only do audio.
