30 Rock My World
We made an exciting discovery the other day.
We've gained two new satellite channels!!!
Back when we had it installed we weighed up the packages. For $95 a month we could get pretty much everything there was - wall to wall sport channels (which neither of ever watch anyway), all the news channels, all the entertainment and movie channels - more dodgy programmes than you could ever fit into your viewing hours.
For $25 a month we could get BBC Prime and BBC World, CNN, MNet Series, NatGeo and Natgeo world. We would lose a couple we liked - Discovery, History etc - but for saving $70 a month of our salary, it did not seem worth it.
And anyhow, our main criteria was whether we would still get 30 Rock. We had fast become big fans of this new show, and were tuning in to every episode we got. It seemed to be on about 3 channels at once, but was repeated on Mnet Series, which we would still get with the smaller package. So that didn't seem to be a problem.
So we downgraded our subscription.
And they promptly cut 30 Rock from the Mnet Series schedule.
Damn them and their cunning.
But now we have channels which have mysteriously become available again, including Go!, which has 30 Rock on every Tuesday.
We'll have skipped half of the second series so there are bound to be a few moments of confusion, but it's like having a new love come back into town.
We have an extra skip in our step thanks to a fantastic show.
And it starts in 5 mins so I'd best get going...
