ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:57 PM) negative

santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) i also have hbo go netflix amazon prime. with hd antennas i get the local channels as well.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:00 PM) I tried the watch ESPN ap but since I cancelled my DTV it said I needed a provider.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:10 PM) yep need an account

ROBJETS Icon : (31 March 2015 - 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (31 March 2015 - 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (31 March 2015 - 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (31 March 2015 - 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (31 March 2015 - 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (31 March 2015 - 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (31 March 2015 - 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (31 March 2015 - 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (31 March 2015 - 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (31 March 2015 - 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (31 March 2015 - 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:15 AM) Now I just need to find a reliable stream for the Jets games.

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:31 PM) lol we knew he wasn't coming back. he isn't as bad as people here think, but i feel like skrine is an upgrade at nickel

I have Vista home premium coming for free. I purchased a new Dell laptop last month and it came with the free upgrade package. I heard That I could use the one copy for two computers! Anyone know if this is true or not.

I see prices ranging from $99 up to $400 depending on what version is purchased. There are 4 versions out there.

1. Windows Vista home basic $99 for upgrade only, $200 for entire program
2. home premium $160, $240
3. home business $200, $300
4. home ultimate$260, $400

I have no clue as to why a OS program would be so high. The Aero Glass windows seem nice and you cannot get that on the Home basic version. Only time will tell if this OS is worth it or not.

Actually there are 8 versions, but only 4 are out to consumers. I'll get back to you soon about the other 4.

Found them:
Vista Starter
Vista Home Basic
Vista Home Basic N
Vista Home Premium
Vista Business
Vista Business N
Vista Ultimate
Vista Enterprise

The N versions are for EU... scaled down to please their governments.

I was waiting for it for a long time. I was going to buy til I read up on it. Its slower than XP. Security is always a concern with any new Microsoft software. If you have a crappy system, Vista is not for you. I'm building another computer. I'm waiting for the AMD dual core chip to go down a bit to built it and add Vista. The Media Player sucks in Vista. My computer now is Vista tested and can use it. I bought XP the day it came out but Vista can wait.
