    Broadband ? Sky / BT / Talk Talk opinions

    Our BT infinity deal is coming to an end and we're thinking of changing ISPs We currently have the 76MB infinity 2 with the TV package etc. We hardly ever watch the add on channels so am considering going for a plain old Internet, but as we've been a BT customer for about 15 years have no clue...

    TV Highlights Sky channels

    I notice that both first leg matches are being shown on Sky Sports 1 channel but both second legs (being played at the same time) are not yet allocated channels but simply shown as on Sky Sports channel. Could this be because they want to see the outcome of the first legs before deciding which...

    Freeview channels on the internet

    Just lost all of the BBC freeview channels on my satellite tv. Been offered a basic price of 150 euros (plus 60 euros to install BBC iplayer and ITV player) for a freeview internetbservice directly on my HD tv or PC via an andriod app (I believe). That sounds a reasonable price to me.Thoughts?

    Southend United manager Phil Brown: TV channels missed a trick by not showing our gam

    I HAVE to say I think the television channels have missed a massive trick by deciding not to screen our forthcoming FA Cup clash against Hull City. More...
  6. Sky or Virgin Media

    Moved into a new place about a month ago, now things have settled down a bit, have been thinking about getting Sky or Virgin Media, mainly sports for me and kids channels for lil-ones. Just wondered if anyone had any advice on which company would be better going with

    British Lions series win

    So the news and Sports channels are going into meltdown as they always do after any kind of tub-thumping victory. As an only occasional fan of egg running, I'm all over the kudos and looking around me for any Australians to rub it in with, but it does all seem a little over-the-top. To any of...

    Question Stephen Fry - Is he a massive ****?

    I was sickened to see a programme called 'Stephen Fry - Gadget man' on Channel 4 whilst flicking channels. The question - is he a massive **** and why? You would have thought it would be pretty hard to burn through the good will acquired as Melchett in Blackadder but there you go.
  9. Oldham Athletic Report

    I went along to Bournemouth v Oldham on Saturday to take a closer look at next week’s FA Cup opponents. The game finished 0-0 and was absolutely dire – if we are to go up this season, and if this match is indicative of the quality of the bottom half of L1, we should be fine in that...

    Convert a mate to SUFC

    I am really quite pleased with myself that I have converted a mate from a 'Gooner' to a Southend fan. Now this has taken a lot of patience and guile, but it can be done. Firstly, I invited him to a game, then a drink after with the lads. Much subtle criticism of armchair premiership Sky (other...

Currently, the system is set up so that i have Sky, but it only has one feed, as there are only 3 outputs...
  12. Breaking News BBC Essex

    On the sports news this morning the newsreader stated that: Southend United may yet be allowed to sign players. I didn't hear the rest of the article, as I had just turned on the radio. Did anybody else hear this? No news on the OS or the other news channels.

    Scott Spencer

    In the past we have lamented about how the likes of Paynter, Hooper etc have been a pile of poo for us but have come good once they moved on. we always moan about this and is does always seem the case. I wonder if Rochdale fans are now thinking the same thing. It took a while for Scotty to be...

    If you were born in the 50's, 60's or 70's

    Doesn't this just some up what it was like growing up and exactly what the kids of today are missing out on? First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads...

    The other Peter Taylor...

    Doc on BBC1 (East Mids) tonight Having watched A Damned United for the first time the other day, I might give this a look tonight - one for those with Sky I'm afraid, guessing BBC1 East Mids will be around the 970/980 mark in terms of channels.

    Wenger's Bar

    I'm afraid I won't be writing a column this week, or indeed ever again. Yep, I'm hanging up my presspass and shutting my laptop for the final time. I'm off to France, you see. Arsene Wenger's assertion that he learned everything he needed to know about football in a pub gave me food for thought...

    For those of you that have Setanta

    For those of you that subscribe to Setanta I read in one of the papers this morning that they may be forced to call in the administrators this week. Apparantly, they are struggling to pay their annual £200 million rights bill for FA Cup, England and Premiership games furthermore, it seems they...

    Lampard Leads The Way To Glory

    Chelsea 2-1 Everton Drogba, 21 Saha, 1 Lampard, 71 An FA Cup Final that began with the quickest goal of its history was secured with one of its best and could have been long remembered for one that wasn't even given. In the kind of sweltering heat that would have made Saturday afternoon on...
