what the heck?

Am sure most people would know what's satellite television.. here in Malaysia, we have 'Astro'.. Astro is the region’s leading cross-media operator with direct-to-home satellite television services in Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia.. our subscription TV service, currently broadcasts 55 channels to more than 1.93 million subscribers, or some 35% of television homes.. it's 1.93M users, you know and this is what happen every time it rains :-


'Service currently not available' *sigh*






I mean if it's raining cats and dogs or even a storm, i'd understand BUT why would the service be interrupted when there's even no rain at my place?! or is it, it's raining at the Astro HQ so that explains why the transmission is down?

Astro is trying to sell one of their new product (Astro MAX) which is quite similar as the TiVo.. it's basically a decoder with a powderful digital recorder inside and it's ONLY RM549.. if you would to choose, which one would you get? i'd choose TiVo!! IF only we have TiVo here.......

Powerful digital recorder? U mean like a hard disk so u can record programs and the burn to DVD later? A lot of people already have that ler.. but different brands.. hehe
U know what? Here in the states there are so many channels, but when I browse from the first channel back to the last, I would say over 60% are always commercials on at the time im browsing.. so irritating.. hard to find the automotive channels, documentaires and porn.. hehe :P
