Sky Sports has a very bad fault on Tuesday night with a EFL game - even Virgin has poor Picture.

It was that bad Sky has to move game to a other channel.

I guess it depends on where you are in the country, but was quite common for me. And yes, as for the dish and rain... that was a primary reason I got cable tv in 1991 and had it continually until last year.

I have vague memories of the odd transmitter fault. I wonder if it was during the time of transfer from VHF to UHF? I'm too old to remember back that far!

I also remember the potters wheel waiting for "Watch with Mother" to start!!!!!

BTW. She never did, always too busy.
