Gurglervision – FTA TV Highlights for the week

Don’t let the blanket ads, Zip Cold/Hot Water tap talk in the office or the Brand Power lady fool you, there’s plenty to be enjoyed on FTA TV than Reality TV, advertisements and the other assorted dross that the channels spend their money on.

As with anything on our website, we’re not about joining in on anything popular, we’re down at the other end of the pool championing the lesser known and the lesser liked servings available.

So we’ll take the hard work out of the TV Guide and highlight or favourites and all the sport on offer. Don’t be fooled that just because football season is over there’s no sport on. It is only ALeague though.
