    My Netflix account is working well and youtube brings me as much as I could ever watch …

    But what we need is a site to collect progressive local media …

    • weka 1.1

      We do indeed.

      I really like Sacha’s idea too, immediately accessible.

      What if we talked about current affairs between 7-7.30pm anyway? #CampbellLives

      Current Affairs Live?

      • mickysavage 1.1.1

        Happy to change Daily Review to Current Affairs Lives and put it up at 7 pm …

        • weka 1.1.1.1

          Cool! Am thinking it might work on several places at once (twitter, here, FB, etc). People can choose where they want to be, but the focus is starting at 7pm and talking current affairs.

          Could there be more moderation here, or would it be the usual free for all? (although by this time of day the troles seems to drop off so maybe it wouldn’t be a problem).

          GREAT idea! Do it. I am sure there will be lots to expose, discuss and hold the government, the bad buggers and the crooks to account.
          Also, the other stories, (the good sort stories and fun news) too could be included.

          May be John Campbell & his team may want to take part too sometimes! Who knows!

          Must boycott TV3, at least the 7 to 7:30 pm Campbell Live replacement programme, WHATEVER it may be, and teach the Media Works arsehole bosses a lesson they won’t forget easily.

          I for one am determined to do that silent protest.

      QuickFlix and NetFlix seem to cover my needs. They along with Youtube play straight from the net to the TV now. I have some of the on-demand news tagged as well.

      I had to buy a new sony bluray BDP S3200 player on the weekend for NetFlix. $129 inc GST.

      Haven’t had a working aerial since September 2012.

  2. Hasn'tTV3DoneWell?North 2

    Hey……just caught the second half hour of the 6.30-7.30 ‘Antiques Road Show’ on Living Channel……not half-bad that bunch of Hoorah Henrys. Certainly preferable to ‘Mutton-As-Lamb’ on One. Maybe BBC Knowledge tomorrow night……Al Jazeera the next. Ka-Kite-‘N’ano TV3. Everyone needs to feel wanted in their ‘circle’ so tell me Jools and Merc’……what will the two of you NOT do for those Parnell BBQ invites ?

  3. Hasn'tTV3DoneWell?North 3

    Hey……just finished the second half hour of 6.30-7.30 ‘Antiques Road Show’ on Living Channel. Not half-bad that bunch of Hoorah Henrys. Certainly prefereable to ‘Mutton-As-Lamb on One. BBC Knowledge tomorrow night, Maybe Al Jazeera the next.

    Ka Kite ‘N’ano TV3.

    Road cops won over shortland street tonight…..

    Yeah, awesome viewing. A repeat of road cops, followed by all new road cops.

    We usually watch Al Jazeera about 3 evenings a week, so just started early at 7pm instead of 7.30.

    Now it’s back to books for the remainder of the evening.

    It was a dark day when Campbell live went off air.

    Miss you guys. We needed you.

    Got to hand it to TV3 they don’t give a rats arse… bravo Julie and Mark for your disdain

  7. Shaned 7

    Outside of the last 4 weeks, TV 3 might actually get better ratings with Road Cops than Campbell Live?

  8. David Bachman 8

    The first show in the Road Cops genre was the US show Cops. It’s been going for about 20 seasons, it’s up there with The Simpsons.

    They latched onto one of our most basic primal pleasures. Our desire to slow down and perve when the long line of crawling traffic eventually gets up to the motorway accident.

    Humans, wicked animals.
