You can use the bbcombotest to merge the result of all your http content/status check in a single check. 
in bbcombotest.cfg you can put something like:

internet.connect = internet.cont1 && internet.cont2 && internet.cont3

remember to change the hobbitlaunch.cfg to include the launch of bbcombotest

Can these be combined as well? Ie do multiple http checks and go red
only if all fail?
