No time to blog!!
To be honest I had never even looked at Youtube before the ban, so apart from seeing that other people had uploaded videos on Facebook and blogs, I never gave it another thought. After all I couldn't watch any of these uploaded videos...all I could see was a blank white square.
So I started browsing Youtube this week and was pleasantly surprised to find that Youtubers upload TV programmes, including all the soaps that I normally watch on my UK TV website. If I missed any of these previously I could never find a website where I could watch them. iplayer for example doesn't work here.
I am still experiencing problems with my TV website. I have been emailing the website who don't seem to be able to tell me what the problem is. I've also been in touch several times with TTNet because we are also having connection problems. So all in all I don't really know who is responsible...but I have at least been able to catch up on Youtube with the programmes I've missed.
There are also a couple of series on UK TV that I have really enjoyed, and I have been gradually building up a collection of DVDs which I buy from Amazon....not when they are first released as they are quite expensive...I just wait until the prices come down. This means of course that I am several series behind. But I have now discovered them on Youtube...so I had been looking forward to spending the winter catching up with them, and saving myself the cost of buying the DVDs.
However, it seems that my happiness at being able to access Youtube will be shortlived...as this article explains. Youtube is likely to be banned again any time now. It's all so bloody silly isn't it?
The reason I have had no time to blog over the past couple of days is simply that I am frantically watching as much as I can of my favourite programmes on Youtube while I still have the chance.
So no doubt I will be back to my daily blogging again quite soon
