So what did you think of the Christmas & New Year tv schedules on the main channels this year?? The dogs whotsits, or a bad year all round.

This ones running for a fortnight from 30/12 as we dont want it hanging around too long...

If theres an option missing you really want , DONT vote, post something here, and one of the mods will add it if its valid.

In which case we need a 'No concern of mine - too busy with the Clarke Belt' tick box :)

You should have an option for 'didn't get a chance to watch anything'

I now have thousand of channels and spend less time watching them that when I had four...

Damn right. I watched Eastenders on Christmas day, and that was only 'cos my parents were over. Don't really watch "terra-telly" at all.

The Internet is the new TV, and no stinking licence fee. Sir Tim B-L is my God.....and Gianfranco Zola is his big brother.

Why put the idea in their heads?

That'll be next - you bet.

Yep, with NDeeS encrypted streaming, it'll work a bit like mp3 downloading I guess.

By the time the muppets have worked out how to licence it, we'll be over the hills and off on the next techno-wave...

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Sad Christmas indeed, blaming the parents is tantamount to signing the confession in your own blood though :ch1

I did see a report today (cannot find it again, senility)has kikked in) that stated that during this holiday period more non-terrestrial TV links were watched than traditional terrestrial TV links.

From that I deduce that more people watched "god knows how many rubbish channels" from Ruperts domain, than the conventional 5 analogue channels/30 DTT channels via a normal aerial.

If this is the case, god help us all.:ny

or it could mean Freeview channels that are on satellite have been accepted as a decent alternative to terrestrial based reception.

There are plenty out there that would tick the 'SKY' option when they are simply viewing anything off an egg shaped dish

Not many votes, but its interesting that the best vote so far has been "iffy"
