TV license is a one-off payment of only *flashing*£145.50!!!*flashing*.

"Cable" is at most £20 a month if you want all the movie channels and stuff. I pay £12 a month without that because torrents.

The TV License authority have vans that can detect that you're watching TV without a license because a receiver alters the behavior of all surrounding radio-frequencies in the area (bull****). I didn't know one person when I was at university who paid for one.

I pay my TV license quarterly because I'm a pauper who dries his teabags on the washing line and reuses them.

I agree the grass isn't always greener though tbh. Even here, people slate their own cities and fetishise London. I wouldn't live there unless you paid me some serious money.
Well its better than crappy Birmingham and I hope that you don't talk like Jasper Carrothead

But let's be honest about it, the vast majority of Brits are a nation of complainers that believe they could have a better life elsewhere, despite the fact that they're just applying guesswork here rather than actual experience of living abroad.

We have Sky and Virgin here. I think Sky is something like 75 quid a month for the TV (all channels), phone line and internet (scamming twats). But you can make your own dodgy set up at home with relative ease which costs about 5 quid a month to run.

Virgin, not sure.

Personally I refuse to pay for TV and use an antenna. I accept that it limits my choices but I'm ok with it, I don't watch a lot. If there's something that's on cable only and I really need to see it (this will definitely be true if the Ducks make it to the BCS title game) I'll head over to Becky's place or go to a sports bar or something.
Same mate I literally never watch telly unless it's live football or other sports like Snooker, Wimbledon in the Tennis etc when there's a big tournament on.

lol I'd say I do tbh.

London is a great place (as you'd expect), but it's not for me. Birmingham is fantastic imo. That's on my doorstep, it's class. Good mix of city & outdoors here imo. People can slag Brum off but I don't really care tbh, I love this piece of shit little city. This was opened recently too.

I would also take Manchester/Alderley Edge over London. If I had to choose a place in London I'd probably go for somewhere like Richmond (ex was from there, v. nice) but I'd rather not.

I'd consider living in America but only because of the outdoors.

I agree. Tbh the only thing I don't like here is the weather but other things make up for that.

Why is this thread twelve pages long? We really are a bunch of losers.
