english soap dvd's

Postby jockney » Tue, 10 Jul 2007 1:49 am

its me again,
now i have officially moved here, i need to start work on the soap situation for my wife as she will arrive next month.....heeelllp!
i am looking for anyone who watches coronation street or eastenders and can loan me the dvd's for my wife to keep updated.
i can at a last resort use a torrent site, but it seems to take a long time to download each episode???
any help will be gratefully received and our appreciation will be shown.

use torrents for a while mate. She'll want to be up to date when she calls home. Trust me. Anything else is just a dissapointment!!!

Dload speeds aren;t too bad. Get the 5 meg 49.95 deal and you'll rip along

hmv.co.uk

They work fast, are reliable and have an immense stock.

You can first try here at HMV at The Heeren at orchard, but their supply is limited and censored.

Also called DVD.

The singapore internet speed has always been an issue.
That ISP's are allowed to lie in their adverstisments is just plain wrong :mad:

I have noticed that starhub now put "up to" in their speed specs :oops:
