    Hey guys,

    Just browsing through my endless amount of blank videos, and I found 2x 3hour tapes of Rapture TV. Does anyone remember this channel and did they watch it? (BTW, The videos only had R.MUZIK on them, you don't think I'm sad enough to record everything... do you?! lol). I remember Rapture TV used to be a Weekend channel on telewest, it use to have a computer program called "Gamerz" (PC Gamer readers will know that), and the occasional clubbing program. As far as I can remember, after that it went offair for a while then came back as a dance music channel. I used to love it, It played music I liked - other channels played the same old crap by boybands and girlbands... and just general crap.

    Does anyone remember Rapture?? It just disappeared from NTL without warning. Same with the sky box... the only box that said anything was my sisters Telewest box, it claimed "Rapture TV ceased broadcasting on 30th October". I checked the website - nothing. Very strange. I don't remember rapture warning us of this either >.<

    Another good thing about rapture is that when my nephews came round at the weekend, Rapture would shut them up - It played sk8boarding programs, and general sports programs.

    Oh well. MTVDance is good... when it's actually on, that is.
    Heh, Luckily we got Kerrang!TV and M2 on sky digital, which I guess makes it better ^_^

    Recently I lost all TV in my room - We used to have NTL digital cable in my mums room, so i'd redirect it to my TV through a hole in the wall and used a VERY long scart lead. Thing is, without that box I have no TV cos the terrestrial signal in our area is too weak. We got rid of NTL cable cos it was costing £84 per month. When that went, the chance of broadband went away with it :( , but the plus side of that is that we now have just one SKY box. Just the name "Sky Digital" makes up for it (I love the interactive on it)

    Anyway, just thought I'd share this with you as I'm very bored, and I got the videos playing in the background... :cool:

    G@ME Network my arse

    Yup. Game network sucks. I never had the chance to watch [.tv], altho my mate loved it and hated to see it go.

    You should see the Legend of Mir prog. Talk about crap presenting, I'm well known for my shy-ness and nervousness, but even I could do a hell of a lot better than that guy. Gawd. Then there's the dumb blond presenting the charts. It's all Italian... or is it dutch? they're not sure where they come from either (the web site claims italy, but the channel claims netherlands). oh dear.

    Hmm... :cool:

    Wasn't the weather done by a trampolining midget and a bikini clad fit lass? I'm telling you, you jus don't get TV genius like that anymore!;)

    I remember Rapture. I remember watching snowboarding on there after the first (and sadly the only) time I went myself.:(
