I notice that the Bid feed has now finally gone from satellite. Up until yesterday both channels were broadcasting colour bars. Now Bid has gone completely but the Price Drop feed is still there but not broadcasting any video or audio.
On another note, 0800 001 4250 still works. I wonder who is paying the electricity/phone bill.
Has anyone bought the company? Has anyone bought the brand names? What has happened to the studios?
Does anyone know the real reason why they went bust? I thought the CVA was past through? Did the £6 million investment never happpen?
Getronics who managed the companies IT network including call centre infrastructure initially agreed to the CVA but then demanded several million pounds, Sit-Up.TV called their bluff and pulled the plug.
I'm clearly bored tonight as this post will demonstrate.
If anybody's interested, the bid.tv web address may be up for grabs soon, as it's due to expire in August.
The company website, sit-up.tv has now expired (and is displaying a message to that effect), as of June 26th. May also be up for grabs soon.
price-drop.tv and the old speed-auction.tv are both registered until February 2015, and bidshopping.co.uk is registered to June 2015.
In another clear sign that I'm bored, the 0800 001 4250 number is still working. Just says all products are sold, call earlier, go to the website, we wish you a good day. Must be being provided under a contract that's paid up to a certain date. Do the old 0904 numbers still work?
