Basically, when i'm on my laptop, i'd like to have a small window (ie 3"x2") always on top, for tv.ie last nights football.

Any thoughts on how i can do it.

I've looked at catchup tv, but 1. Not sure how to get it to always stay on top 2. There is no pop up option, you have to adjust the window size.

Any thoughts.

Blu-tack your mobile phone to your laptop. Sorted.

With this utility you can make any window 'always on top'.

Just get a small 15" monitor for about 10 from a charity shop and drag the footy to that screen and job done as sods law will say that what you want will always be under the small screen especially when the action gets good but you need to press certain buttons hidden

I think this means use a 2nd monitor (if your graphics card supports it). [Maxatoria may be down the pub with his mate robert]

Yup i vote for a cheap 2nd screen, enable extend desktop and drag the browser over there. So you can work on laptop screen and have the tv on the other screen
