  1. Last week
  2. So they get the shit repeat channels back then up the price
  3. Earlier
  4. Because both prime and netflix are just complete shite?
  5. Damn, I was this close to killing my subscription for TV and Phone too... the loss of 'Dave' was the tipping point. Already have Netflix and AmazonPrime, why am I still paying for VM tv!
  6. And now the channels are back. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-45154707
  7. Good thing for me it killed off my v+ box as with others looking on their forums. So they have replaced it with another v6 and no extra monthly fee for it as i did not pay extra for v+ box.
  8. Who needs more Top Gear repeats, or Jamie Oliver 15 minute meals anyway? I think the only thing most folks will miss is Nigella's Tits, and her describing her lemon cake as …..moist lol!
  9. Made me chuckle this thread is there only me with a TV licence on here 😀
  10. Haha TVL or whoever they are. A friend of mine had managed without a TV licence for about two years without anything other than a couple of the standard letters. Then one afternoon was working in his front garden and the collector or whatever you call them called round. The bloke just asked him if this was his house blah blah blah (To which I would have said not me guv just gardener ) Anyway my mate just sang like a canary and said Yeah we have a tv yeah we watch it all the time....oh the wife must have forgotten to pay it...... Feckin idiot paid in full at the doorstep and STILL got reported lol.....No further action though. I have said I'm glad he wasn't in the sas or involved in wartime stuff.....we would have been done in days lol.
  11. same here. worst thing anyone can do is engage in a dialogue with these muppets. i just usually say "hes not in" then close the door. ive no idea who this "legal occupier" dude is either so all the letters for him go straight in the bin too.
  12. I've never ever had a TV licence - ever!!! I get some strongly worded (computer generated), letters every other month - but they just go straight in the bin. I've had the TV plod coming round my house a couple of times, I just tell them to beat it - don't sign anything/engage in conversation/let them in your house. They way I see it, these guys are just the same as some employee for Argos coming round your house asking if you have a microwave. I.E A private company employee - with zero legal training or any sort of legal jurisdiction over you. Never paid - never will!!! they should encypt the channels and get people to pay to decrypt them, then only people that want to watch the pish they show can watch it, everyone else should be left in peace to watch what they want, without some TV Nazi scum annoying them.
  13. not had a tv licence for 3 years,never watch live tv.
  14. I think the BBC are taking the piss out of people over the TV licence. I no longer need one as I don't watch live TV anymore. Streaming is the future.
  15. Grinds my gears that WE have already paid for this stuff via the "license" should all be free to UK license payers - fook the bbc, they aint having another penny of mine.
  16. Kinda makes me happy that I don’t have VM for telly.
  17. virgin have posted a list of replacement channels at https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/News/UKTV-Channels-List/ba-p/3775318
  18. Police in Lowestoft, Sussex (Twinned with Sodor), are currently 'tracking down' a missing 30ft long land train built in the iconic style of much-loved children's TV character Thomas the Tank Engine. The very distinctive vehicle was lifted from a shipping container it was being stored in, along with 2 passenger carriages. So it would be bloody hard to miss and even harder to flog on eBay. Police say it is possible a Lorry may have been used in the removal of the vehicle and have asked the public if they saw anything suspicious. There are fears that Thomas may end up being sold to Northern Rail whereupon he will endure a life of endless slavery as he shuffles disgruntled passengers on the Liverpool line, with little chance to relax and let off steam. Our money is on this corrupt b*stard being involved. If you know the whereabouts of Thomas then please let the police know by calling them on 101 and quoting reference 40241/18.

  20. The European Space Agency asked members of the public to come up with a new name for its previously named ExoMars mission which will see a six-wheeled robot land on the Red Planet. A special website has been set up and the public is invited to post their suggestions, although unlike the doomed attempt to name a boat a few years back, this will NOT be an online poll so you can't vote for your favourite. So if you were planning on Spacey McSpaceFace then your luck is out. ExoMars is planned to launch on a Roscosmos Proton Launcher in 2020 and will land on Mars in spring 2021, all being well. It's the swiss army knife of rovers and will carry a drill capable of digging 2m below the surface as well as a suite of instruments dedicated to researching the geochemistry of Earths neighbour. Is there life out there? Well, this more than capable rover aims to try and answer that. The vehicle is still being assembled at the Airbus factory in Stevenage and will undergo rigorous tests before launch. Britain has played a huge part in the development of the rover and has been its key financial contributor, although the UK Space Agency has opened the competition up to all residents of any ESA member state. There are a few rules and regulations regarding naming so we have listed them below. The naming website is hosted by Airbus. The name can be a single word, a short combination of words, or an acronym. It must not have been used for a past, current or proposed space mission. Ideas should be accompanied by an explanation of no more than 150 words. If a person's name, that person must have died on/before 10 October 1993. The search website will close to entries at 23:59 BST on 10 October 2018. A UK Space Agency expert panel will choose the best suggestion. Think hard! Only one name suggestion will be accepted from each entrant. View full article

  22. Before a certain starship captain named Kirk was on the scene, the captain of the Federation flagship was one Christopher Pike. Season 2 of Discovery looks set to shed light on the mysterious replacement of Pike with Kirk as it would seem at least in this continuity that he swapped ships on a highly classified mission to boldly go where no one has gone before in order to save the galaxy. Actor Anson Mount takes the role of pike as he transports from the Enterprise to team up with Burnham and the rest of the Discovery crew as they pump up the warp factor and head off to unravel the mystery of the Red Bursts, signals detected across space which could be either friend or foe. Seriously though let's face facts here, it's most likely that they are this season's big bad. The new Starfleet uniforms seen in the video must be mentioned, as the costume department has managed to integrate the classic look of “The Cage” and The Original Series with the more modern Discovery uniforms. You can bet your bottom bar of gold latinum that them red shirts gonna die and the hemlines are going to be high on the ladies skirts. All the classic props are also there, the tricorders, phasers and communicators we all loved in our childhood, they have the basics of beam me up and shoot to kill all worked out. Who doesn't love a bit of retro eh? Plus seeing Anson Mount sitting in the captain’s chair in that yellow tunic just screams old school Pike. As for Captain Lorca? Well, his mirror universe counterpart is dead and disintegrated but with a show like this, well you can never be sure anyone is every truly beyond being brought back from the grave can we. We also have a very dangerous mirror universe baddie with a plotline to resolve so we may even see Empress Georgiou pop up at some point in the season. Season 2 Airs in January 2019. Watch Season 1 on Netflix Here: Link View full article

  24. Some content will go here.
  25. Yep, I agree - and you don't have to watch all those stupid adverts either. That's why people use netflix and other streaming services. If you want to watch 1 hour of TV - you don't get 45 minutes and 15 minutes of ads. I bet the advertising industry is hating that as well :-)
  26. In this guide we'll show you how to speed up Ubuntu 18.04, currently the most recent version of the Linux distribution from Canonical. The Ubuntu operating system is based on the Linux kernel. Both are free and open source software, meaning that the code used is available online for others to use and review. Canonical, the main developers of Ubuntu, work with the Linux Community to make sure the OS is as efficient as possible. Over time however, your Ubuntu 18.04 installation can become more sluggish. This can be due to small amounts of free disk space or possible low virtual memory due to the number of programs you’ve downloaded. In this guide on how to speed up Ubuntu 18.04, you’ll discover our ten best tips to make sure your Ubuntu 18.04 system fires on all cylinders. These Ubuntu speed up tips cover some obvious steps such as installing more RAM, as well as more obscure ones like resizing your machine's swap space.
