They now serve different news content to UK and outside UK. Often exchanged links won't work. Sometimes the bbc.com/news and bbc.co.uk/news links do automagically change domain when used across the national GeoIP border other times you get nothing. BBC future is unavailable in UK. They claim for commercial reasons of charter & Adverts. The real reason is that it seems to be recycled from other websites.
bbc.com/news working all weekend but very slow apart from the Clown Error page once.
Also too much damm video and flash rather than text and photos. Also outside UK EVERY video is poisoned with a prepended unskippable long advert. I do not wish to use up my Cap downloading stupid advert video.
They, ITV and C4 seem to stopped making much decent TV too (Five never did). I've gone back to Radio. I have no wish to watch soaps, Fry, reality TV, quizzes, crap rude comedy and US imports or franchises.
