    well this could be interesting I suppose... I like the comparison to BBC 1 and BBC 2 though... Channel 5 is not BBC 2 and deffo ain't BBC 1... heheh

    I guess it's more comparable to those channels which appear on Sky if you accidentally click the up button immediately after going to the menu.... heheheh :p

    Channel 4 is more like BBC2, but 5, it's a bit more as you say, off of the beaten track of TV channels! Mind you, it is getting better, a year or so ago it was just budget stuff no-one wanted, now I recon I watch on average a programme a week on 5. If this means they will have more revenue from advertising, and be able to create and buy more and better programmes, it has to be good.

    I heard rumours Live! TV was coming back - don't know if anyone remembers it, was an early sat/cable channel, and just a complete laugh - topless darts, strip financial news, midget on a trampoline doing the weather! Many hours wasted with that trash. Ho hum.

    Well Channel 5 (or five or whatever its called nowadays) couldnt get any worse. Infact it would be infinitely better if it just showed Channel 4 repeats.

    Scrap that actually just make it show 24. Damn not having sky anymore no series 3 for me :'(
