Have they toned down the ludicrousness of Louis's character a lot?

The last season and the start of this he got progressively more caricatured - clearly played for broad comedy and it really spoiled...

Grouty, this thread's not here to list schedule changes, since scheduling is not specific to Freesat, but relates to every 'carrier' a channel is broadcast on - Sky, Freesat, FTA, etc.

Pernsioners get more use of their TV than almost every other section of society. If *anyone* should be paying a TV license it should be them.

Oh look. It seems they can pay their 6bn tax bill after all!

I feel sure our fiscally responsible 'all in it together' coalition government will send out a bill to VodaFone without delay.

So everyone will be paying for it and subsidising the entertainment of an already well-catered for metropolitan population. Wow.

Completely unjustifiable.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I have to say it's a pretty cack-headed descision by freesat to wipe people's recording schedules just because they rescan. I wonder what the justification is...

I think Jesus would approve of the redesign because DS have ditched the "Cult" section.

Seriously, though - that's my one go-to section. Now it doesn't exist: less reason to come here.
