So ... there I was.
Watching Terry Prachett's Hogfather on the TeeVee, and just as Susan (Death's Granddaughter) and Bilious (The God of Hangovers) head off on Binky (Death's horse) ...
... the picture went right down the khazi.
Something DirectTeeVee neglects to mention in their ads is that if you have heavy cloud-cover, the signal tends to, shall we say -- break up -- on it's way to your dish.
Since it is, as I type, snowing, it's safe to say that we've got heavy cloud-cover.
Great. Just great. And I was so enjoying that movie, too.
A quick run around the Intarwebz reveals that a Hogfather DVD is available. In England. In the PAL/SECAM format.
Since American TeeVees run on the NTSC format, this doesn't perzackly help me any.
Bugger 'em all.
