Grrr. Virgin Cable TV:-
Sky One= no great loss.
FX = only channel you can legitimately watch the Wire on UK TV.
Happily rewatching series 4 tonight, ready to catch all the smart bits of dialogue that I didn’t quite get the first time or read the messages supposedly coded into Omar’s t-shirts by the costume designers that I wasn’t paying attention to. And so on.
Screen goes blank five minutes after the credits.
Ominous blue box comes up, holding the words that I’m not authorised to view this channel.
So it costs about Â£80 a month – for broadband, tv and a phone I make barely half a dozen local calls on – no matter what the ads say – and they can’t even pay out the Wire now?
