    I have cable TV. It's pretty good but expensive. I've heard many people say that sky TV in Europe wasn't very good...billiards during prime time, ect.

    I would go ape without decent TV.

    This is why USA is in crisis and doesn't have any money!

    No one has jobs there, yet they all want the latest iPhone, 9999 channels, 80" TV, 5.1 surround sound, etc.

    It's crap and Sky TV in UK is too expensive. Luckily there is "the internet".

    Does Torrents count if my monitor is a tv?

    On a related note,why is live streaming of some channels from Romania from their website slow as hell? I can't watch Kiss tv. Is it because I'm located in the U.S. and they don't have a server for people located here?

    Im in the UK and with Sky I have every channel I would want, few adverts compared to the US and generally only have to wait an extra day or two for new US TV shows. Price is not cheap to be fair but meh, you get what you pay for at least we only have to put up with one set of adverts every half hour and even less (or none) on lots of channels.

    To all UK people: I sure love the idea of few advertisements. I watch "East Enders" every Sunday night, even if it is 2 years behind what you get.

    Roparadise: I've never watched TV online, but I know a software engineer from Australia working in Chicago who does. He says Americans don't know how to manage their money very well. Can you get CNN online?
