I know. I never thought I'd write that. and i'm sure there'll be days i'll be cursing them again, whether about the phone or internet connection. but this week at least, I think they're great. I signed up for BT sport because i got fed up with the adverts saying that this was "free to BT customers" when in my case it wasn't. and as it happened, i needed a more powerful signal, and some complicated kit, and a bump in what I was paying, before I could actually connect.
But on this week's evidence, it's a bargain. At the weekend I watched two gripping rugby matches, Leicester v. Northampton and Toulon v. Bath. and then tonight, utterly stunning, I saw every minute of the rainswept, error-strewn magnificent 3-3 draw between Liverpool and Arsenal. Just amazing.
