We've not had a television for 13 years - don't miss it at all - it may not all be rubbish but we can pick and choose what we want to see on iplayer. e.
I am assuming you only watch catch up or from their library catalogue on I player and the others, if you watch live tv on i player even if it is on your computer you need a license
Never give up Tomorrow is another day.
I've not watched F1 for years - I used to watch it in the old days of Murray Walker on BBC but got fed up when Schumacher kept winning constantly. I haven't watched it since. I used to like watching motor racing in person though, both cars and bikes, and used to go to Oulton Park regularly.
Visit my blog for food, drink, photography and hamsters.
I used to follow motorcycle racing from the 60s to the 80s and helped my then husband to run a racing club. That was interesting but I preferred to go to the big races - the Hutchinson Hundred on Boxing Day at Brands Hatch - riding the wrong way around the circuit, it was a lot of fun. We got to know quite a few of the riders who became famous, Barry Sheene was one. It used to be 10 shillings to go to a circuit then...
I'll try that again!
I used to love watching F1 in the days when Eddie Jordan had his team because of the Irish connection and because F1 generally was a far more interesting spectacle. Nowadays I never watch it.
And American Football back in the days when Dan Marino played for the Miami Dolphins and Channel 5 had it on TV every Sunday afternoon. That must have been early 80's.
Like reading, watching TV seems to come and go in phases with me but now I get bored with it very easily. I love Michael Portillo's railway journeys and enjoy lapping up the evocative WW2 period atmosphere of Foyle's War although Honeysuckle Weeks grates. And rugby. I watch as many internationals as I can.
It always stuns me when anybody says they enjoy Come Dine With Me or Jeremy Kyle (people watching, basically). They should take a walk down my local High St here in Armley, or take a gentle stroll (not) through the council estates in Harehills

Ah, the Patriots, Eileen. I switched my allegiance to the 49ers because I lived in San Fran for a little while and have friends there. Tried to watch the Super Bowl in Jan but fell asleep!
I lived in Limerick for a while, Steve, and while rugby is not held quite in the same esteem as it is in Wales, it is Ireland's hotbed for sure. Garryowen, Shannon, Young Munster . . So I am a big fan of Munster rugby.
Anyway, I digress and may feel a gentle stroke of the if I do not pull this thread back on track.
Some game shows do appeal, like the Chase. Clever format and challenging questions. I also quite liked the Cube for a while. Is it still showing?
