Hi Lynn.

If you subscribe to Foxtel or cable you can watch UK-TV, although Corrie and East Enders are way way behind the latest episodes on the TV in the UK.

Sky News is on live from London every day, and Fox Sports carries live sport from the UK, although the soccer (footie is Aussie Rules) is on at an unearthly hour ...

Then again you can see the latest episodes of Neighbours on Channel 10 (6.30pm in the evenings) - about 6 weeks ahead of the UK I think - and my favourite, The Secret Life of Us ...

See what's on Foxtel here:

Best regards.

Alan, very useful info as my girlfriend is hooked on British soaps. Do you know of any other providers that show more current UK shows, I noticed that the likes of Eastenders and Coronation St are a good few years behind.

Yours Hopefully,

Glenn

Also, you can get a broadband connection and watch UK TV over the net:

Think of it as an incentive to get your girlfriend out of the habit of watching
soaps. It's amazing how many people watch soaps only out of habit. My parents have
been watching Coronation Street for 30+ years, and for that last 5 years or so
they've moaned about how naff the show has become, but will they switch it off ? ....
