Its all personal opinion of course, and for my two cents worth I would rather see a channel like BBC news added to Freeview rather than another music channel. Is there any plans on adding BBC news, I am lead to understand that the chanel it self is free, so its just a case of paying for the bandwidth on the satellite?

Must be getting old, my reaction to another music chanel is "oh no more depravity I can't relate too", of course...this is probably what my parents thought of my music back in the day :-)

Have a good day all, Shomenno

I would imagine that there aren't any plans for FV to add BBC, unless of course BBC themselves decided that they want to broadcast on the FV plaform - which includes them paying the fees and transmission costs. Just my $0.02.

There's nothing to stop BBCWorld from broadcasting on freeview. However, it's entirely over to BBC to organise and fund it, just the same as it is for any other organisation broadcasting on freeview.

Thanks for the reply, I already have a dish and a reciever and get Freeview. Would you be able to explain how I can do this in a little more detail, I am pretty new to satellites.

I am aware that you can pick up Australian Broadcasts and this includes BBC, but you need a considerably larger dish and a another LMB. Is this the same or different to what you sugegst?

Ta, Shomenno

Back to the channel C42, I've been listening to it a bit over the weekend while working (yet another working weekend unfortunately), they actually play some pretty decent music (in my opinion of course!). A lot of independent stuff, haven't heard any hip-hop at all so far!

It's a real shame that people have a view of what hip-hop is based on the absolute garbage that C4 play most of the time. Hip-hop is actually really good.

This ^

Unfortunately, most good hip hop is not mainstream enough to make it to tv or is too "offensive", or is produced by labels that don't control the charts.

Most of the "hip hop" played on tv/radio is simply sh|te or is really pop/r'n'b garbage
