So, those not on Virgin Media may not know, but due to a break down in negotiations their customers have lost access to all the channels provided by UKTV (even the freeview ones!). This happened at midnight Saturday but I've been away so only just found out!

Unfortunately, I was one of those mugs who fell for one of their many deals and tbh I have an increasing amount of regret ever since making the switch. The WiFi is shit too!

As usual Bally cuts through all the crap concentrating on the root cause :)

An even bigger cunt.



Both self serving cunts who happily use the Tory party to increase their wealth. One by giving them the media to retain power in exchange for favours and the other by using their stupidity and greed to fuck the NHS.



I hope one gives the other Aids and they both die

A lot of people talk about IPTV, what's that.....



:)



The quicker Sky release an internet based subscription the better. Now TV is ridiculously expensive for sports as an alternative. Good for day passes but not a monthly one. Hopefully that will allow them to bring the costs down and make it affordable again for ordinary folk. I am probably living in a fantasy world but I'd like £20 for entertainment and Sports. Still 60 quid when you throw in Fibre!



Can't get Virgin in St.Annes which is why I am only talking about Sky

Do you really want Sky to go totally IPTV?



Sky Broadband is one of the best mainstream residential offerings, but that doesn't mean it's great and it still relies on BT's crappy outdated network.



Then there's the fact that they (as in any provider) will send you the absolute cheapest, bottom of the line wifi router they can get their hands on and they lock you in to using it. These routers are simply not good enough and only the technically minded of people will figure out a way to a better solution.



There is no way I would go fully IPTV at the moment if Sky offered it.
