Yeah ITV are launching so TV3 are loosing Coronation Street and Emmerdale and probably more stuff I'd know about if I watched the channel. I'd say it'll just be full of cheap american imports before long.

champs league is separate from their ITV deal. Dunno why they bother with it though, at least with RTE the alternative is usually Sky sports which many don't have. With TV3 almost everyone watches the matches on ITV, even those who use sky and need to go into the dreaded other channels.

The quality on the Other Channels version of ITV is shocking. I get better quality streaming the game.

That'd probably make it better than it is now though.

They'll probably make of the Talafornia type stuff and Irish versions of British and American shows, like they're doing with Apprentice. Dragons Den, etc

Do you have a HD subscription? The HD one is fine for me anyway. For some stuff I'm not pushed about the quality but the difference is really noticable when it comes to sport.

Nah I don't. I have the cheapest possible Sky package and TBH I'm very tempted to cancel it. Barely use it at all.

Started watching GOT 3 weeks ago today. Only have last Sunday's to watch now.

What I have figured out is that:
Nobody makes it home. Ever.
Not any of the Starks. The Tageryegens. The Lannisters to Castilly Rock. Theon Greyjoy. No-one.

It's just one big road trip where supporting characters get introduced and then killed.

Also I'm rooting for Stannis to win the war. Fuck the rest of them.
Went back to the old forum and read the (short-lived) GOT thread in Dukes - Rob's post was awesome :lol:

Theon's sister and her mission to go save ol' dickless from his captors.

the laughter track works overtime on 2 broke girls
such an awful show.
the two leads have the worst voices in the history of anything.
it's like listening to the girl who sings "duke of earl" in the man with 2 brains forever
