I gave up on the television a looooong time ago. I'm going to be absolutely raging when the TV liscencing team rape me of £110+ per year just for owning a television that i'll only ever watch DVDs on.

But judging by his selection of TV programmes his choice in books could also lead to the conclusion that books are also shit! Being more carefully selective is the answer.

no, I think Hogs point was, they were all on the telly at the same time...and unlike "everyone else", doesn't have freeview, or sky.

A quick glance at last night's paper reveals that Hog must have been watching telly at around 10.30, when there wasn't in fact "Quiz TV" on BBC 2, but Newsnight.

So you could have watched that instead, I watched some of it and there was an interesting feature on interest rates and inflation. *cough*

TV is total gash :down:

Public expectation is now so low that they can put any old pish on - and as long as there's a Z-list pop "star" a disgraced/deranged "celeb" and at least one repulsive Essex slapper on show, then the dimwitted British public will tune in.

A country that used to lead the world in all manner of things is now developing into a nation of jelly-heads. Just look at some of the grammar & spelling on this otherwise fine site alone.

I don't know if TV contributes to the general dumbing-down of the UK, or if it's a result of it

Hearbreaking ;(

What I was meaning...

4 channels and half of it is made up of no brainer reality nonsense. As Paul Cocoass pointed out, why pay 110 to use the tv for dvds. Channel 4 should know better.

Big Brother= sittin gin my livingroom watching people sit in a livingroom.

Tempted to buy Sky but I really just watch world cinema movies from Blockbusters postal service.

Having seen the sorry state of ITV, personally I'm happy enough paying the license fee, yes there is more bollocks on BBC these days as well, but lots of good stuff too.

Anyone who just wants to watch DVDs should just watch them on a computer.

I have to agree with Sky (though I do kinda strangely love it). With Sky you will develop a compulsive need to constantly flick around all the channels. Several hours will pass and you'll have not have watched a complete programme.

Get freeview and you'll get E4 and Filmfour.

Or more importantly More4 (YES! to the daily show and west wing repeats) and FilmFour as E4 just seems to show big brother just now. You'll also get UKTV History (the recent run of Attenborough sundays was ace), BBC News 24 and Sky Sports News (for Soccer Saturday).

That's probably a much better use of cash. Sky is utter shagwank. I rarely watch TV but seem to find myself only ever watching poker or repeats of Scrubs whilst eating me tea. You do get some good movies popping up in the evenings on random channels but generally I've seen them all before.

Do you get Film Four for free on Freeview? I have to pay an extra Sky subscription if I want it??

It became free across the board last month. But they now show adverts in the films, although not too often and they're not starting to annoy me yet. This week I've watched Motorcycle Diaries, Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile on Film Four.

So I now have it free too? Cool. Although having said that any films I've seen listed I tend to have anyway.....but there's always the odd one. Motorcycle Diaries was ace. I avoided The Green Mile for years but my girlfriend insisted I watch it a few months back and it was also very good against my expectations.

I watched TV for the first time in ages last night (Liverpool game) and then I was hoping to watch Alcatraz, Defying the Rock, but it turned out that it was on a different history channel to the Freeview one, UKTV History. Gaahhh... TV is shit. (But Mark Gonzalez isn't :))

only thing is... you are now subjected to adverts in film 4.... if you think the tv programmes are shite (and by enlarge they most certainly are, although tbh some aren't as quite as good as shite) the adverts are most certianly painful...

now its free... i kinda wish i had subscribed to film 4...

best tv on at the moment is i clavdivs (imo)...its very telling that tv from the 70's is the only thing currently worth watching on 600+ channels...

tv is for morons.... if you are not a moron, but watch enough tv u soon will be... then you enjoy tv.... pretty good closed loop feedback control system really...

You must have missed the huge marketing campaign that has been going on for the last month all over the telly and the papers.
