I always find something adversely wrong with the word FREE being used by ANY company ... they don't seem to understand what it means. :confused:

I feel really irate that these 'phrases' have become a norm. :rolleyes:


you moving V_R ?

Ha, no well, at lest not to Kansas.....


I did like this bit though..


Never miss a show again.
Or eight.
Record up to eight programs simultaneously, just because you can. And with an unprecedented two terabytes of storage, you will never have to worry about having enough space to record your favorite shows.
Eight at a time!? :eek:

How I'd love a 1GB connection - that's pretty incredible... I didn't even know those sorts of speed were being rolled out. I'm still chugging along at 6Mbps and don't feel that's too bad.

There have been Gigabit trials in a few places around London for a while now. BT started around 2011. Not sure what the packages were though. I did mention this in another of V_R's posts before, or might have been in a PM to him.:blush:
