As far as I am concerned they have more chance of seeing the Pope ride a jet ski than me paying them any hard earned cash!......'Power to the Sat freedom fighters!' :D

I have a suitable box, but won’t pay that amount for those channels, but would watch if files became available.

I think there's an option in the poll missing.

"Yes, for a month only to get my card for when the system is cr@cked" O-Ha

In case that puzzles you, SEC@2 requires titanium cards which retail at £20-25, so if you get an OSC for £10 + 7.99 you save.

I wonder just how much of the initial subbers are one month wonders

You do however forget the £20 one of connection charge.

you got to wonder why people running pyramid scams are prosecuted when you have services like this in operation. "Hey we know that a lot of you cant afford sky or cable packages every month , so give us £8 a month and we will profit from your misfortune by letting you see a little of what others are getting"

I thought I would try it, so last week I called their number, which probably most of you know is an automated service Press 1 if you want 2 or 2 if you want 4 & 5, 6 if you want other services 7 if you want to go raving bonkers. Well I finally reached somewhere in the chain that asked for my details for Direct Debit payments, it took a long time to go through it all, and at the end I was told my card would be with me in about three days, so I gave it four, no card, so called their Customer services, and was asked by a Human Being what my postal code was so that they could check, the Human Being said had I used the automated service, to which I confirmed I had. Sorry was the reply, we have no record of your application, we can do it for you now, it will not take long, my answer was " Sorry but no thank You ". So if anyone has applied via their Automated system and you have not received a card, its probably because they did not keep your details

WR, where have you seen that the BBC are going to charge?

TUTV is a commercial offering by a commercial company and has nothing to do with the Beeb. In fact I read that they were worried that TUTV might confuse the public after all their efforts to simplify things.
