[access-uk] Re: bbc freesat

I too am a boring BBC4 viewer, but it isn't boring at all.  I have been
watching all the Medieval Season, which is fascinating.

Ok, so I'm not the world authority on Free Sat - especially as I cannot use 
satalite reception, but I thought I'd heard either that Sky didn't want to 
carry the free stuff any longer, or that the BBC and ITV figured they could 
do it more cheaply themselves if Murdoch was winding the price up of them 
using his platform.

I could have it entirely wrong, but thank goodness I can receive Freeview. 
As for my viewing?  Afraid I'm a boring BBC4 viewer.

Cheers,
Ray.
