But in our house we still say can you video that for me . Meaning record on the sky box so I wonder what other people might say ?

I've still got one and use it occassionally. It's a more recent one that also has a DVD player built in. Don't watch them either!

I don't have a skybox or anything that records, just the standard freeview built into the telly that has 100 channels of crap on it!

No wonder they had rental places Andy. Most everyone seemed to rent their TV or video at one time.

We used to rent the TV back in the sixties and seventies. Used to get videos from the local Blockbusters. Where are they now? Gone skint I expect!

It was the norm to rent I think. In this age of easy to get credit and where everything is disposable, it's just not needed I guess. Where have all the TV repair men gone?! Used to be a common sight at one time.
