    If I pay the bbc the £100 ish I can watch their channels in any room of my house. I can also record one channel while watching another. I have NTL Digital at the moment - hence I can't watch 1 digital channel while recording another (I know you can do this for terrestrial channels).

    If I want to receive the package I have subscribed for in another room I have to pay a monthly rental-fee for a box that never becomes mine (at least sky users can buy the box). Why can't I buy a box? I saw an advert for sky with their friendly-voiced ad guy saying how you could watch sky in another room for a small extra sub (so you pay to watch the channels you already pay for in another room)

    Digital tv is supposed to be a step forward, but some of these things make me think otherwise.
