Does anybody use the new Radio Times web site?

Radio Times has just closed its old site, which I found very useful for reminding me when my favourite TV & radio programmes were on.

The new site does not work very well, pages fail to load, and it regularly comes up with messages like this:-

"My Watchlist

We're sorry, radiotimes.com is very busy at the moment and we can't load your watchlist right now.

Please pop back in a few minutes and hopefully normal service will resume!

Following

Sorry, we don't seem to be able to load your following list right now."

The old site would load and list the programmes on my watchlist within 5 seconds, today, the new site took the best part of 2 minutes and failed to load the home page.

http://www.radiotimes.com/

The link is above, if you haven't tried it yet.

There is a community support site, but very little actual support is received from Radio Times. I think they've lost interest and couldn't care about it not working properly.

Does anybody have any luck with it?

No I can't say I have ever visited the site and in reality I didn't even know that the Radio Times was still in print either in paper or electrionically.

Why would someone wish to buy such a publication when surely the same information is readily available from your own TV at the press of a button or two?

Condom...The advantages of buying a paper TV magazine are :-

You don't have to switch on your TV to see what you don't want to watch,

You lessen the likelihood of watchin' a film that you have seen eight times before...'The Great Escape' for example...

The 280 pages will be individually converted into paper airplanes...let loose from an 11 storeys high window...tastefully.

Be prepared for a court summons for littering your neighbourhood!

AitchBEE I think you must be Scottish as well as we seem to have very similar senses of humour.
