TV news, both on and below
Published: Thursday 2007-01-18.
When I visit Sweden, SVT 24 is one of the channels I often watch, to get a quick news update and not having to wait for one of the “big” news programmes, and despite the Oslo cable networks carrying both SVT 1 and 2 and TV 4, none of them have any plans on carrying the 24. So initiative from the privately owned TV 2 in a news channel is very welcome from my part. Now I don’t have to turn on CNN International or BBC World to get the latest news, and I get the interesting national news that the big giants are missing.
Speaking of TV, or rather what gets connected to it, it is not only my workplace that has bought a Wii, I have managed to acquire one for myself as well. Despite it being sold out in all the electronics shops I checked with, Elkjøp’s on-line shop for a short while had a package in store in the middle of last week. I managed to order it, my copy arrived on Saturday, and I have been playing Wii Sports (bowling is fun), Zelda (although not to well) and GT Pro Series (with a steering wheel, which should be awarded a prize in the “make the player look stupid” class) a bit since then. That, and that my girlfriend’s brother have been visiting, has unfortunately lead to me not posting to my blog for a while.
