the big change over is coming.
soon all tv will be digital. if you are not ready you will miss out on your favourite programmes.
do i care?
well for a start i don't really watch that much tv.
also i have a set top box which means i am ready for digital. oh yes baby.
so it is a sunday and one of the few programmes i want to watch is on. impact wrestling from tna. it is on challenge. i turn the tv on, i head over to challenge and i get nothing. the signal is weak.
why? have they used the substitute transmitter? have challenge not put enough money in the meter?
so i do the sensible thing. i retune.
hold on i have gone from 88 stations down to 57 (ah mr. springsteen how right you were), no bbc but there is challenge that is all i care about right now.
still nothing. just a text box at the bottom of the screen telling me that the signal is weak. yet itv and their lame x-factor show was coming in loud and proud.
how does that happen.
it's digital - surely it is all coming from the same place and at the same strength.
i fiddle with the signal booster. i move it here, i move it there. high. low. at an angle. more to the left. over to the right.
fucking digital - waste of time.
