Actually, in honour of my crappy nick, they should call it gotoo.
I share the same thoughts about what UK Health Services is doing with telling schoolchildren "masturbation is good" [...] -- UK Gov't Health tells kids to masturbate;Parents are angry. But when you have a monopoly, customer opinions don't matter
Where are you getting this info? I assume by "UK Health Services", you're referring to the NHS, but the top 2 google hits on NHS masturbation were one page saying (paraphrased) "social values have changed, it's no longer taboo" and another being a description of study that found masturbation at a young age may be linked to prostate cancer. Neither of those seem to be a call for the youth of Britain to get down with their bad selves.
Why do I even waste my time putting together posts? I am so sick and tired of this site.
I appreciated them, FWIW.

Why are all the prices in British Pounds? Did they just annex all those countries overnight or is the author of the article a lazy bastard?
The prices are in British Pounds, because the linked article is on a UK website. The author of the article is someone who is reporting the news to people in his country of origin. Congratulations on discovering that there's an entire world outside your country's borders!
If it's not on the same multiplex, you'd need at least one other tuner in the box (2 if sequential "channel" numbers are all on different multiplexes). Quite often that's the case, though, particularly in boxes which offer picture-in-picture or "record one channel, watch another" type functionality.
Sorry if it's been done.
