Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
 Is all that worth 20 dollars a month ? one meal out ? ! You cannot be serious ! -  as a notorious tennis player used to say.

Then there's the BBC web sites - all of them - god knows how many - want to learn French ? - go to the BBC, lots of options just for that - and free !

Oh then there's this news:

 BBC celebrates three Webby awards  

The BBC News website has picked up two awards at the internet's most glamorous night of the year.
The site won Webbys for Best News Website and the People's Choice Award for online news sites for the third year running.

The BBC's Radio 1 website also won an award for Best Radio Website.
The BBC received the most nominations of any organisation in this year's awards.

BBC News Interactive Editor Steve Herrmann said: "To win both the Webby and the People's Choice awards again this year is a huge honour for us."


Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.

I presume from your sig line that with a crafty bit of satellite dish pointing, you can get those for free.

Actually it works out about $3 or so more than my mental calculation but it is, what, roughly the cost of a coffee at Starbucks a week. I suppose it was really a question of whether a much bigger offer than BBC America could be marketed as a subscription service somewhere in between.
