It's because crap TV is cheep and good TV isn't because it requires writers, actors, etc and not just normal people who will do it for free (or very little money )

 

On the good TV front i am watching a show on channel 5 called person of interest which is made by JJ abrams. It's on Sunday night about 9pm. The idea for the show is that after 9/11 the US wanted to stop terrorist attacks before they happened. So this guy built a machine which scans all communication and CCTV and it finds murderous intent. However it picks up all murderous intent and the US government wasn't interested in everyday crimes. So he created a back door and it give's him the social security number of someone who is going to be killed. I am loving this show it is really clever.

You should have switched to the Horror channel around midnight which was screening the classic ' Nude Nuns With Big Guns', perfect background entertainment whilst playing Day Z.laugh

Hold on, hold on….now, here's where I am at the moment.

I have a connection speed to the interwebs that peaks around 4MB (if no one else in the village is online).

We don't get cable internets, so I'm stuck with Freeview TV and a BT Vision box.

(I'm thinking of looking at FreeSat in the future).

 

Yes, there is some utter garbage on the telly, but (and I know this is not everyone's cup of tea) there are some amazing 'factual' shows on the BBC. If you havn't seen Africa in HD, then I urge you to go and try it.

 

Its a shame that there is even a market for some of the banal bilge they show on some channels – but to be fair, we don't watch type of show…I've really been enjoying the Ripper Street on BBC…especially in HD….magnificent production values.

 

BBC iPlayer through my new telly is a wonder of science!

I've had 'Freesat' for 2 years now, but in all honesty, now that 'Freeview' has HD channels I'd choose 'Freeview'. Not just because 'Freeview' has 'Dave', but because you don't need to have a dish installed that costs around £130. The only good thing about Freesat is that 'Sky' uses the same satellite, so if you are leaving 'Sky', it won't need re-aligning, making the switch to Freesat cheaper.

4mb is more than enough to watch Netflix without problems. Six quid a month, and there's ALWAYS something on tv!

Streaming is the way to go. It's finally easier the pirating stuff and in better quality.

 

Now that LoveFilm have added a "Watch Later" option to bookmark stuff, I'm up to my neck in (mostly American) shows I've not seen. Also great to binge on 3 episodes at a time.

For any Netflix users I can strongly recommend House Of Cards. American political drama, some dark comedy thrown in and Kevin Spacey is magnificent.

It's funny how these streaming services are acting like a cultural exchange program.

With Netflix and HuluPlus I've been turned onto a bunch of British and Canadian shows like Mongrels, Whites, Misfits, Spy, and Endgame(a fun Canadian show about an agoraphobic chess grandmaster who solves mysteries from inside a luxury hotel).

Is that anything to do with the British "I couldn't possibly comment" political drama of yesteryear?

Yes, it's an adaptation of the BBC version. I've only seen clips of the original so couldn't comment on how similar it is but this version has so many current cultural references I can't see it being *that* close.
