At some point in the last month, my Freeview signal went all crappy. As it occasionally does (grr). I was lazy for a few days and just ignored it, hoping it might magically fix itself. It didn't. So I powercycled the box a few times. Nope. Unplugged and re-plugged all the cables. Nope.
So I retuned the box. Analogue switch off soon, blah blah, so I thought maybe things had moved a bit in preparation.
Turns out this was a very silly idea. I am now left with only BBC channels, ITV3, QVC and Fiver. Not a brilliant selection, especially if you consider that most of what I watch is on E4
Which means I've been streaming a lot of tv online. Yay for SeeSaw! This was going fine, until I got the dreaded email "you're approaching your broadband bandwidth limit". And only half way through a billing month. oops. Admittedly I "only" have 10Gig a month, because it's el cheapo and normally plenty enough. Today I got a second email saying I'd exceeded the limit, so they've added a fiver to my bill for an extra 5 gig. sigh.
But on the plus side, I've discovered that BBC4 isn't just boring 'intellectual' crap... Switched over after Hustle last night to find nearly 2 hours of Iron Maiden. Awesome! Seems they've got quite a few heavy metal documentaries going on as well. Good stuff. And possibly a bit less brain numbing than Hollyoaks and endless repeats of Friends.
