    Probably a couple of ways
    - Bluetooth and you accepted his connection
    - If he was ever in your house and asked for WiFi password and your tv is on the same WiFi he could connect without you approving anything.

    Back when that technology was starting out we were on stag in Manchester. One of the lads had gotten the password for WiFi from barmaid earlier in the day. Later on United were playing on the big screen TV and he noticed he could connect to the TV. He flipped on Timbos Goals with Gerrard goal against United At Anfield in 01 on his phone and then put it on the big screen in the middle of match. He didn’t even let onto us. The place was packed, he kept his composure and only told us after we left as would have got a serious hiding had he been outed. Seen something similar in Galway one year at the races when someone put on porn on the TVs in the Quays pub.

    Bout 15 years ago my mate checked the baby monitor video feed and got a fright. He was looking at a baby sleeping in a house a few doors down.

    I would say so. You would like to think the tech has come on since then.

    You can't beat Sunday afternoon drinking. Just wish it was in a pub.

    I've about a half a bottle of red on board and looking forward to the other half once I get the baby to sleep. Sunday is without doubt the best drinking day but it has to be early.

    The joys of working shifts and 5 over 7. Plenty of late starts on a Monday or like tomorrow,not in at all. Of course you also work some Sundays but it's swings and roundabouts.

    Jesus, that's fairly hectic even if home by 9. Though in my 20's maybe no idea issue, 9 pints might have me in ICU these days.

    I would say most people are in the same boat Ed, regardless of age, we're all out of practice, having not seen much of a pub in the last year.

    It's good that the government are talking about relaxing the licencing laws once this is all over. Can only be a good thing.

    Let's hope they go through with it, and get it right, this time...

    They'll also need to declare a national holiday for about 2 weeks, let everyone go bananas and get over the impact of Covid - 19, a bit.

    Give everywhere the option of opening 24/7 would be my preference. Very few places would actually stay open full time, but it would give both business owners and punters absolute flexibility.

    Wasnt there extended opening hours of an hour or two introduced years ago, and then reversed a few years later?

    Could be me being cynical, but I reckon this is another notion put out there in the public domain at the exact time of news of extended restrictions to distract and appear to give struggling businesses some hope for the future. Over last 10 years they have wanted to restrict nightclubs and bars from staying open late so would be surprised if this actually happens.
