People Are PISSED At UTV Ireland Because They're Not Showing The New Downton Tonight

"The most useless station. No one wanted it."


The new season of Downton Abbey premieres tonight, and as per usual the internet is getting pretty stoked about it all.

But just as the anticipation is reaching fever pitch, a horrible realisation is dawning upon Irish viewers – they won't be able to watch it, as UTV Ireland failed to secure the rights here.

So while it's on UTV in the North – ie, the station we used to have here until the new channel started broadcasting in January – fans here will have to wait until Tuesday to watch it on TV3 instead.

And guess what? They're not particularly happy about it, with most directing their rage at 'the channel we never needed'.
