Leeds EPL game coverage on TV in England

I've been wondering about this without actually taking steps to ascertain independently, so thought I would ask the question of forum members. In order to watch most or all of Leeds EPL games over there is it necessary to have cable or satellite TV, or do the BBC and other 'terrestrial' channels giv...

Re: Cassette Tapes are back!

I wouldn't have cassettes back at any price - awful things, maybe an improvement on vinyl for convenience but not for sound.

We're currently switching all our DVDs to SSD so we can bring them back to England.

Re: Our Board of Directors

Re: Big six proposal

Wasn't this the second bite of the cherry? I don't think it's over - these scumbags will try again after a while, when they've had a chance to modify their approach and make it somewhat more acceptable. Pep had it right - how can it be competition when, if you lose, there is no penalty - it's the Am...

Re: Big six proposal

My previous point wasn't quite serious but, remember, when money takes over completely anything's possible if we don't guard against it. You may think the US's democracry can't be defeated but, back to the money!

Re: Big six proposal

What everyone has to realise about all American professional sports is that there's no system of promotion and relegation in any of them - thus the same teams get to stay in the same boring leagues all the time making money from the spectators and TV fans who have never experienced genuine competiti...
