UPC aka Liberty Global run the cable TV market in most of Ireland, They also have UPC operating in Switzerland, and the Netherlands as already stated. For those of you with TiVo, they are exclusive to VM, so who knows what's going to happen there.
LGI(UPC) are currrently launching a Sky box buster in their European markets - Horizon. http://horizon.upc-cablecom.ch/en/?intcmp=promo1_experience#welcome has more bumph about it. It offers the ability to record four programmes at the same time.
Their broadband service is excellent here in Ireland. minimum package is 50Mb and 5Mb up, but they don;t cater for those who want less or cheaper packages. They also provide telephony packs.
Just a FYI, chaps.
I was coming through Leeds?Bradford on my way to Dublin with 2 pieces of speaker cable (12" in length each) in my carry on, when they were confiscated. They could be used for binding, I was told. The two trouser belts, phone charger, laptop power adapter and shoe-laces were all ignored.
Thank goodness they're so eagle-eyed.
I presume these were the famous pieces of driftwood that once were branches of the trees used to hang the monkeys in Hartlepool, all those years ago.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_hanger for reference.
I've mailed Jeff Stelling of Sky Sports asking him to confirm this speculation.
The scumbag caused a lot of issues for users of the site. It was a great resource for flight-sim add-ins.
Comments such as "doing their job properly" shouldn't be in the discussion. He was contacted before the matter was referred to the men in blue and had his chance which he chose to ignore - the prick is a criminal, and he deserves to get his come-uppance.
He visited Ireland back in 1994 and was due to meet the Irish Prime Minister at Shannon Airport.
However, he failed to exit from the plane and rumours abounded that the man had a heart attack/stroke - call it what you will..
Enlightens us more
Another Red in the bed conspiracy theory.
Get a DVD player which can pump out 1080i or - even better - 1080p via HDMI.
and go on to say...
Hi-def Discs Forget 'em until the Blu-ray/HD DVD thing is settled, and they actually produce a decent range of films on the winning format
Why bother getting the player if you're not going to get the discs?
