It's been going the way of full pay to watch it live for a while now, like a lot of sports we all enjoyed for free. I won't pay for it but I hate the possibility of only being able to see highlights in years to come.
The just is still out on the Channel 4 coverage but their highlights program was littered with ad breaks which annoyed me. Thankfully I had it recorded and could skip the ads.
Yes you can use SS like kanthal in normal wattage mode. I do dry burn mine when gunked up and have not detected any ill effects. I don't dry burn Ni200 or Titanium any more but I will warm them up to try and get rid of any gunk before re-wicking. What I am reading from that article is that SS is the safest of the 3 wires featured.
