Turns out that the message that has been annoyingly popping up on our ExpressVu every 30 minutes or so for the last month and change said something along the lines of
"Hey Fuckers - if you don't get a new card soon, you ain't going to have any TV to watch!"
Thirteen seconds ago is the new definition of soon.
Came home from walking Cool Hand Luke, sat down to watch some SportsCentre, saw Chipper Jones pull up lame (shocking, I know!) and then BLACK, followed by a nice little message that we didn't have authorization to watch TSN.
Or The Score.
Or CBC for that matter.
Every channel is now off limits, except for the ExpressVu info stations which are about as exciting as watching paint dry, outside of the "New to ExpressVu Adult" channel, which, not surprisingly, we're also not authorized for. Not that I would watch it in the first place.
The irony of it all? I live in a house with a man who works for Nielson's Television who gets all this stuff through work.
Be sure to check back frequently, as I'm sure to be here even more frequently than before now that I'm short one major procrastination tool.
