Prisoners are moaning apparently that the planned digital switchover in a few years is going to happen, but they are only going to get 9 channels instead of 40...

9 channels! Thats 9 more than they should be given in my eyes. A prisoner more often than not so I believe, is there as they have committed a crime. Correct me if I am wrong?

So therefore why should they be given TV at all? A reward for good behaviour apparently...

Obviously there has to be some sort of scheme in place for Prisoners to have rewards etc... otherwise the whole system wouldn't work, Prisoners would rebel, and the system would collapse.

But I think now that its got to the stage that Prisoners are in fact moaning about what they get, shouldn't they just be grateful for what they are getting, cheeky sods.

They are criminals after all...

  3. It is disgusting. Most of them are foreign too. They come here, claim benefits and then commit crimes anyway. And then we lock them up they complain about the conditions – we should just send them back to where they came from – where they’re lucky to even have running water, let alone E4!!

    HM Prisons are probably doing the prisoners a favour – there are no more than nine decent channels on Freeview anyway.

  9. Do they get to choose which 9 channels they get. Like, a majority vote, or whatever?
    What a terrible disgrace.

    There is a sheriff in Arizona, USA that follows the law that says the prisoners have to have TV, there are 2 channels, one is an educational channel (The History Channel) and the other one is the weather channel so they know how hot it is going to be. I love it.

    I found it funny that in America, they have banned Nintendo Wii’s and PS3’s because people were able to contact the outside world.

    I’m beginning to think that prison sounds like a bit of a lark
