Found 5th May 2009
dontcha just love em? the way they have to talk for 20 minutes about each item and just drone on forever!

last night watched bid.tv and they were selling a microwave which had the great feature "a cooking end time signal"(it pings when its ready-lol)

or when they demonstrate tellys and one of the main features is "this handy remote control device" which means....wait for it...."you can ACTUALLY change channels without leaving the comfort of your armchair"

class!

10 minutes explaining the mute button etc :w00t:

What I think is funny is the postage some people pay on there already ridiculously over priced crap lol.

You can pick up some bargains if you bid online sometimes.

My Mum is addicted to Bid-TV. lol

The postage and the premium to pay to ring up alone make them a small fortune, even if they gave the items away!!!

Unfortunately it seems to work!
My mother is addicted to them n has bought SO much crap off them.
I've tried telling her but she just won't listen!!!

As AshleyRFC said, the MOST ridiculous thing about the whole channel is the postage.
By the time you add the cost of the phone call as well, the item's cost you a tenner before you've even started!!
Drives me insane but she just won't listen!!!!!

Anybody else had any problems with becomin addicted to these channels themselves or relatives?

I know i saw it just after i posted it lol.

Is ur mum REALLY addicted.
I mean, when mine was at work (she's retired now), i was made redundant n out of work for a short while, i was on 1st name terms with the delivery driver (as she used to have the stuff delivered to my house!).
It became a daily routine of "hello m8, how r u 2day? What's she ordered this time?"
Unbelievable lol.

My mum used to phone the quiz channels all the time, she even did it from mine once when she was babysitting, I looked at my bill and thought wtf is that, she had to give me £9 lol, silly cow.

£9? Lucky you, my wife once spend almost £100 in an hour and a half on one of those. "I thought I wouldn't have to pay if I didn't get through".

Hmmm.

I think when these channels started a lot of people didn't realise that they were charged no matter what.
