5 Mainstream - BBC1, BBC2, ITV1, Channel4 & Channel5, about 30 'freeview' - Digital(transmitted digitally from normal (for the UK) terestrial antenna) , so free if you have a transcoder box, plus about 50 or so satellite stations, most of which you pay for, and most of which are C*%P. We can also point our satellite dishes, (both analogue and digital) at various Euro-stationary satelites, and pick up their C*&P too!!!

SLick350 I await with anticipation. Top gear usually follows the start of 5th gear does anyone know when?

Looking forward to seeing Tiff Needel throw a SLK around their test track although with him being an ex-race driver (and co-presenter Jason Plato), they are unlikely to warm to anything with an auto box or traction control that you can't offically turn off completely.

Top Gear used to be 'the' UK TV motor program to watch but unless you want to endure 60 minutes of a cringe-worthy Jeremy Clarkson ego trip its easily forgettable... saying that ....

I kick myself for watching it every week and moan like crazy in the vein hope that their ego will give way to more driving action and less catapulting cars across desert landscapes... that's not really what you buy an SLK for is it ??!!!!
