I think the leaked copy I have came off the CD they used to use to demonstrate CD players.

In a way I'm sad about it, but any semblance of the fun which made up Bid went about a month ago with Shop at Bid. I honestly don't know what they were thinking with that, it was obvious to me it wouldn't work. The channels became a lot less watchable after Christmas, even before the 'big change', and generally were nowhere near as good as they were 10 years ago (and back then, they were nowhere near as good as they had been 2 years before...). Price Drop made a bit of a recovery in that regard, but it was clear that they just weren't shifting stuff.

Hope it's not Peter Simon's last gig.

- A junked track with additional instrumentation (can be heard from about 30sec into track)
-- 2004- bid-up.tv new concentrate 1.4 (junked).mp3 - cool track if you haven't heard it.


Thanks for sharing those. The junked one is.... odd. Well I can't actually decide whether I like it or not actually! I can see why they junked it though - I don't think it would have worked on air - just a little too busy.

No, and the reason for that is - the muppet that kept sharing the tracks on public sites to be the big "I am"; well... no idea who it was; but it got back to sit-up, and they never sent me any other tracks after that. I don't even know who composed them. The guy that sent me them originally left the company a couple of years ago and I had no other contacts there.


Just like ITV breakfast... are people getting the picture here......

Does anyone have any recording of the last moments on air, or are they not live during the day?

Both channels broadcasted live from 07.45 - 01.30 until today. David might have their last moments on air?

They are live. If ShoppingTelly forums are to be believed the plug was just pulled. Would be interested to see myself.

Price drop tv can't even get its website address on the caption correct. They've forgotten to put the hyphon between Price and Drop in! Oh, and you guessed, if you go to the website, it's down for maintenance!

If we're really going to nitpick at this stage, the caption is completely wrong since the channel was renamed 'Best of Bid' and has the wrong logo, same with Bid.

Has anyone managed to find footage of their last minutes on air? If not, was anyone watching at the time, and if so, what was said?

The channel was never renamed and didn't change to the [Best of] Bid format exclusively anyway. [Best of] Bid was recently abandoned for the [All New] Price Drop format.

Bid's website is now showing a "oops can't connect to www.bid.tv" while Price-Drop is still displaying the maintenance screen.
