Advantages: Some decent videos
Disadvantages: Rip-off prices, Poor Sound and Picture Quality.
I think "The Box" is a terrible channel, and basicly I also think it is a total rip-off.
I mean it is terrible the way you get charged 60 pence a minute to watch a Video, that you can see on any of the numerous Music channels, free of charge.
And before anyone comes back with the comment that "You get to choose the video to watch" exactly how long do you have to wait for the Video to come on as I`ve seen certain videos been chosen (by the number imputted) and it hasn't come on for about an hour, and also when you see a popular video getting chosen about 10 times, how come it is only shown the once?.
The other thing I hate about "The Box" is the quality of most of the videos is attrocious, can anyone remember when Oasis`s "Champagne Supernova" was on, boy was the video of BAD quality and Very very low, you had to put your TV on full blast just to hear the words.
This is not the only Video that was of poor quality as I`ve seen lots of them, and also seen some videos get cut-off halfway through them.
The only good thing I have to say about "The Box", is that they have a lot of Videos from new and unheard of groups quite early, thus giving you the chance to sample some new acts.
So come on whoever owns "The Box" (I actually thinks it MTV) enough of the poor quality videos, lower the phone charges and maybe you`ll find that we like the channel a wee bit better.
