Not so Freeview…

July 31, 2006

Mr Badger and I are currently undergoing a bit of a Freeview problem. It’s a long story but it seems that, for now, we can only receive good old analogue. Oh, except that we can’t get Five… So that’s just four channels for now then. We’re actually doing pretty well, and I’m surprised that there’s still quite a bit of interest lurking around these channels still.

Sure, it’d be nice to be able to watch free films on Film Four and extra BB coverage on E4. It’d even be nice to pick up the latest goss on America’s Next Top Model… But really… You don’t NEED these shows do you? Not really… I mean, who needs the latest catty taunts on Project Runway when I can watch the Seven Top Man Made Wonders of the South West… Or Countryfile…?

Okay, I’m lying, I’m totally cold turkeying! I NEED Freeview, dagnammit! How did we survive without it?

    Lol, you’re in the same trap as us! Bath’s the same as Exeter, no Freeview signal. We’ve had just four channels for a year now… [sniff]

    What’s more frustrating is that we’re in a Freeview area, it’s our ariel what’s pointing the wrong way. To turn it around, we have to seek permission from the council (damned Georgian houses) and chances are that the rest of the tenants in the house will lose their signal (most of them are old biddies who’d prolly want Freeview anyway, seeing as all they do all day is watch telly and wee themselves).
