Photo Virgin Media & UKTV
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!

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.....

Smile

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
