It's a pretty crappy magazine since Dr Dish(Christian Mass) left the magazine with some other people.

Yeah, I get it. I just got a 6 issue sub a couple of months ago. I've just received the second issue and I've got to say I'm unimpressed. There's not much content, it's half-full of ads (and mostly really bad, completely uninformative "beautiful-woman-sitting-on-a-sofa-in-a-white-room-with-minimalist-interior-whilst-
navigating-the-menus-on-a-satellite-receiver-with-some-bad-engrish-caption" ones*).

The reviews seem to be mostly comprised of stuff being advertised prominently. Don't want to suggest anything but they do seem to play down the negatives.

Oh, and the questions on the Q&A pages seem to be from people less clued up than Wotsat readers. Don't get me wrong, there's clued up Wotsat readers but as that's sold in many high street newsagents there's always going to be newbies. TSI seems to be geared more towards the trade and yet has many questions that are "newbie" ones. In other words there not all that much use to anyone other than newbs.

Maybe the next four editions will change my mind!

*Obviously it's not up to TSI to choose ad campaigns for their customers - but still... :D :-bash

Tend not to find it in the large high-street newsagents, but one of the better local newsagents in my area (Hayes, Middlesex) regularly gets several copies (one on the shelf yesteday!).

Tend to agree about the "grovelling" nature of the articles since Christian Mass left, but I think they have got a bit better and more critical in the recent 2 issues. Also, has some interesting articles on kit that is available in the UK but not in the UK.

I had to get my local newsagent to order it. Most newsagents have a catalogue that lists every magasine availiable in the UK. Try your local shop rather than the high street stores.
