It's only there to placate UEFA in taking games off FTA - they had to agree to showing the finals of both events plus one live game per UK club to get exclusive rights.

From what I understand it...

Humax HDR-FOX T2 (not) recording an hour early

I suspect the Japanese original had presenters (definately had sideline reporters) - they were just ditched for the international redub.

One of my favourite episodes of any Big Brother ever. It played out almost perfectly and the great comp (which was original rather than a rehash of previous comps like many are!) was a nice little...

Arisa is probably the best BB host around at the moment. It's nice seeing how the US format would be hosted if the host had a personality.

I do think though given budget constraints they shouldn't have been too afraid to lose the rights. It was never likely ITV, who haven't come to the table in years, would bid really agressively for...

LOL - probably not quite how it would work. I would guess they'd take Sky's 5 highest bids and then put the two remaining packages back out to tender. At best BT could maybe win the lower end...

Yes, not flagged up at all on their featured shows but only had to get as far as "B" on the search to get it.
