Newest Review: ... started ranting about how the Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, was a "serial killer" and that he was awful for authorizing a cull of wild camels. I guess these people must be geography experts because they were talking about sending the meat to Mozemiza (he meant Mozambique) among other things. I don't know why this guy (Joe Cramer I believe his name is) was commenting and ... more

If you are not media savvy, completely uneducated and like to listen to people who have paid-for opinions (chequebook journalism), then please, please feel free to watch CNBC. If you are the sort of person who likes to watch people comment on issues that they have little idea about, then go ahead and watch CNBC, because you will see a lot of that there. If you like to watch TV presents screaming a lot, then go ahead and watch it. What tipped me over to actually go and write this review was an excellent segment that I recently saw on the internet where the issue of a wild camel cull in Australia was brought up. The stock trader ... Read the complete review

CNBC is one of the few English speaking channels I have here on Polish cable, anyone flicking through would be forgiven for taking a dim view at English speaking media if they based their opinion on this rubbish. CNBC (Consumer News and Business Channel) tends to focus on business news, regularly talks about the stock market and exchange rates - this is done by the reporter and various "experts" who usually broadcast their opinions in a most chaotic hyper way, shortening phrases and speaking quickly with typically simple American grammar whilst cracking unfunny jokes and generally being very dramatic. Occasionally the business spiel is ... Read the complete review

CNBC is a service of NBC and the Dow Jones News wire. They provide the most comprehensive financial infromation available on TV. They aim their programme more at the professional and the business man than some services, but it can be easily understood by the small investor as well. They are the quickest at bringing vital information and press releases. In a business world where every second counts they are the first to bring you the news. They are linked to a service in America, so they so more to the US market at 13.00 GMT. However every investor should be keeping an eye on the US as well. A great feature is the 'ticker' which brings you real time prices of the . Read the complete review

Another channel that got me curious I had a look at this when I came home from work and have to admit I couldn’t make head or tail of what was going on. If you are into financial dealings stocks and shares then you’re in for a wild ride if you are like me and this bores you totally senseless the I advise you to stop watching I did. I remember this on analogue as NBC it had some nice sports programmes on then but its all change now. There are other programmes on a night and to be honest I have never checked them out some my rating reflects this I wouldn’t recommend this channel to anybody I found it boring. ...

I suppose there is a niche market for this sort of thing, if you happen to be a city whizz kid with a penchant for watching business programmes from an American perspective - to me, it was about as interesting as watching the proverbial paint dry! It is an offshoot of the giant U S network NBC, and I was hoping that more of NBC's programming would be shown on it. Suffice to say, if I earned a dollar every time during the day "Wall Street" is mentioned, I would be rich enough to want to watch! ... Read the complete review

Carlton Food Network - Well presented, variety of shows, excellent website. Some shows and chefs not to my liking.
QVC - Covenient , good prices , freephone , 30 day money back guarantee , prompt Maybe too convenient , remember its a sales pitch , returns need postage paying for

Carlton Television - A great independent channel service, preserved old Thames favourites, bought in fresh new programmes, kept up with the times and has a bright sparkly image Being an independent station, don't expect 'paid' quality programming as that offered by the BBC or Sky etc.
