Sky catchup on non-Sky Broadband?

I've never had Sky. My parents have it and are looking to change to PlusNet instead fo Sky for their broadband, to save a few quid. Will their Sky catchup services still work, or are they for some reason tied to having Sky broadband?

Re: Scooters

He is already doing big skids, arcing round corners with a leg hanging off, bunny hopping up kerbs etc. By contrast, my 8 year old has only just got a 3 wheeler Micro Maxi, which she can just about push along. She's a bit lacking in the physical grace and dexterity department. My wife can't ride a ...

Re: Weird car crush.

I had a 440 - it was nice but not as classic as the 300's Mother used to have a 345....DL, I want to say? Fucking awful car. Although it did write off a Lada at one point so not all bad I suppose. I had a 340 at Uni that I bought for £50 off a friend. It was a fecking liability. Some drunken studen...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Found a sensibly priced set of brembo 4pots for the mito. Might seem like overkill but they fitted them as standard on the 155 and 170bhp models, so seems a sensible upgrade on my 135 which should be making 160ish. Internet wisdom says they don't fit normal models, all the research I've done says a...

The irony is that they make most sense an an urban environment

Re: Your fleet running reports

Yep the dial turns on when you have 5 litres left. The screen warns you when you have 60 miles I think so it depends on your recent driving as to when that one beeps. When I’ve been driving solely in London it will give the low fuel warning with over 1/4 tank remaining. Renault, as I may have said ...

Re: It's that day again.

I sent my wife the amazon link to the very manly bbq temperature gauge (which links to an app) that she's going to gift me with.
Bring on lots of slow cooked meat with remote temperature monitoring.

Re: Your fleet running reports

I’m impressed you get anything north of 35mpg in the 740. I just did 3 days (270 miles) of motorway commuting in the Megane, some stop start but not too much, and not going over 80... 32mpg

Re: Panorama - Smart Motorways

Not see the programme but does your analysis need to filter on hard shoulder (or stopping in lane 1 on a smart motorway) related fatalities?

edit: but then you probably need stats on how many people stopped in hard shoulders or lane 1.

God, I'd love that but probably no chance of getting it past the Mrs. Drove the #rallycar for the first time in 6 weeks - to the station. Managed not to crash into a lamppost this time. Old person's disc on the wheel (bought for autosolo/slalom twirling) is ace :D One thing I have considered as an ...

Re: The ebay thread

I guess I like that it's the GTi running gear in a more practical body. I also have (or had, not for a while) strange desires for the Seat Altea that can be had with the same engine, or the 4wd version, the Freetrack 4, complete with chocolate colour interior and plastic tat on the outside.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Small updates on a rainy Sunday: EvoraBW (2).jpg Evora - my local independent called it a day, which was a shame, as he was only 3 miles away. Took it to a new place over Burton, which is a far less convenient 40 miles away. Still, service done, and fitted new Powerflex ARB's front and rear which h...
