Someone here wanted to watch the final of the world cup tonight but wasn't aware of the kick off time.
Let me explain the situation. There are two TVs in this house connected to Sky and one is HD - in the room where the golf and Everton fanatic usually views programmes. But I have my 'own' Sky TV in another wee room and just around 7.30pm they joined me there watching the match on BBC1.
They then decided it would be good to see it on the HD TV and immediately went to the room with the HD TV only for it to be announced that the match didn't start for another half hour so they would play U2 until then.
Do the BBC right hand know what's happening from the left? Another question I was asked: Why do the BBC have so few HD programmes in comparison to the likes of Sky? It's not as if the BBC aren't behind the door in advertising their HD abilities and the income they receive from the licence fee, which is another tax in anything but name.
After about ten minutes HD updated to show the match. How can they get it so wrong or is the HD hype a scam for people to buy into HD? Answers in the comments, but I'm sure they'll be very brief.
