Great site. I have just moved to Bermondsey St from Ireland. I am only going to be here for a year and want to rent a tv. Does anyone know of anywhere in the area that does this (or would deliver to SE1. I am having trouble finding anywhere.
Totally agree- I used to rent and then bought a TV from Tescos (on offer) which cost less than two months rental-still going two years later! So once you have an idea as to what you want ie size,dvd player etc 'froogle' for one on the web or look in the supermarkets as they are always doing specials for TVs.
I second the suggestion re. British Heart Foundation - I've got stuff out of there. Just be sure to check you can connect a dvd if that's essential for you.
But just a cheeky but heartfelt suggestion.... ever considered not having a tv? Honestly, for anyone who hasn't tried it, I can't recommend it enough. Time to do stuff (and the energy that goes with it) magically appears like you wouldn't believe, you sleep better (provided you don't substitue films for horror books) and going to see a well-shot film at the cinema becomes a mind-blowingly exciting spectacle. Imagine removing the temptation to come home from work and just slump on the sofa.
when i get in i usually just put the radio on, although MrsR tends to prefer the TV - i can't live without the daily dose of Hollyoaks, Emmerdale, Corrie, Eastenders, plus the weekend omnibuses if she missed an episode, or sometimes the 10pm repeat of 'stenders on BBC3...
