Amazon prime (7.99) and netflix (7.49) together = 185 a year. TV license is £145. But with those I also get amazon music, unlimited free delivery, twitch prime. Its so much better value. The BBC seems to be mostly light\reality entertainment, cop shows, news and panel quiz shows. Its only surviving now because of nostalgia for what it used to put out.

I just asked my bank for a card without rfid\no contactless feature in it and got one.
You're right, we don't care for it and if it wasn't for nostalgia neither would most people.
Looking at the TV guide for tomorrow, Tuesday, tv is only on between 9am and 12 - its news other than that. Of those 15 hours, there are 3 more hours of news so 12 left which will be the same that was on all the rest of the day.
2 hrs 45 minutes of cop\detective shows, 5 and a half hours of reality light entertainment (flog it,homes under the hammer etc). Other slots taken up by quizshows 90% of the time.
Most of that is on every day, its hardly the most diverse and interesting lineup. Haven't watched live tv in many years and obviously haven't missed out. The tv license is about the cost of Netflix and Amazon prime. Without the music, delivery and other benefits and the original shows put on by both of those shame the bbc.
no sympathy, no sure who would apart from other people on the same tax dodge
Any chance of "news" papers doing the same thing? Those are very rarely clearly labelled as sponsored content.
another piece of clickbait with speculation and no real information.
2 pages without actually saying anything, nice work.
I dont know why these organisations seem surprised they need to buy the software they are using.
you arent forced to use that and its as Keith said, it's free.. there are plenty of other IDE's out there.
So Eddie Murphy is the new Steve Martin?
First: I have to admit to using Vista at home, installed it when it was released and I've never had a problem with it.
Im using the 8 CP and i don't get why bars and buttons are getting bigger on a lot of programs while actual useful space is declining. They even removed the classic theme which I have been using since XP. The OS should be in the background letting you run what you want, not the main feature of the PC.
rip off games
The only reason for all the backward compatability is to keep the price of their last gen console titles high.
Been with NTL/Virgin for nearly 8 years and not had a single problem. Speed seems fine too.
predictable jokes. besides, no-one said it has to be set in the current timeline.
the major conflict ended before vanilla wow by the way, with minor skirmishes lingering but still long before shattrath.
upgrading to shiny new things when you dont need to
The Excel thing..really? Not sure what the point of that was but most of the article screamed..what is new and shiny is good and what is old and tested is bad..even if it works and does everything you need it to. upgrading for the sake of it is just stupid. is there something vital missing from the older version?
This quote also says the same "more focused on design attributes which drive the consumerist desires we all share". You might, I look for features vs price.
get the shiny things! oo same thing but different colours? must pay full price again.
Hmm, so they cant monitor those dangerous people but a database of exactly the same information for the whole law abiding population is fine?
Good work government.
agree with AC
It's a gaming network, your orientation should have no place in it.
Unless she was using it to try and pick up others as that is the ONLY reason to include it. I think this is one of the reasons why, they dont want Xbox live to turn into a pickup joint.
Agree with AC in that why do people need to shout about certain things when it clearly has no place in the arena they are venting it in.
Not sure why its on the reg but love the article.
Its a shame more newspapers don't do long term temperature trend analysis over one day "hottest day since gates of hell opened etc.." scare stories, but then people would be informed. But I guess "ice caps bigger than x years ago, temp pretty much varies but stable with some variance over last 100 years" isn't an exciting headline.
New news story
"As part of this we don't make any kind of accusation about the user — it could be somebody else in their house, their block of flats or they might have an open Wi-Fi connection," said the spokesman.
"We can't point the finger at the account holder, but we can point out what's happening with their connection. Often it's a lack of education that's causing the problem."
So Virgin wont be cutting anyone off, they are leaving it to the rights holders or representatives to take action as it has been for some time already.
