    This is a discussion on Product Placement & Increased Advertising Breaks within the General chat forums, part of the Community channel category; I've not seen it commented on anywhere but actually Coronation Street have been mentioning specific brand names in the dialogue ...

      I've not seen it commented on anywhere but actually Coronation Street have been mentioning specific brand names in the dialogue for some weeks now.

      Maybe nobody else watches Corry

      I always fast-forward through the adverts. I guess if the programmes are full of adverts I'll fast-forward through them too...

      I like watching programmes like Merlin & Being Human.

      Agree with you stubble I watch merlin and being human not corrie.

      This series of bring human is looking great.

      Hotspotshield and American website streaming is good for finding some of the best shows. Chuck, human target, burn notice, royal pains, house and the big bang theory to name a few

      New Hawaii five 0 is great aswell

      Roll on the return of Dr who think its this month

      Stubble! STUBBLE! You been looking at my legs? I swear they're smooth!

      I already have both series of Human Target. Admittedly I haven't caught up with them all yet. I have a few TBs of HD capacity to watch. It is a good series though from what I've watched to date.

      Hawaii Five-O is nice. Some poor neighbours might not agree about the theme tune though.

      I wonder if they'll put some PP for the Pineapples? Didn't the man from Delmoté say "Yeah!".

      Dr Who looks to be returning in 'Spring' & Summer for a total of 13 episodes. There's a special for Comic Relief too on 18th March. I can't see an actual start date though.
