richms: They are paying tvnz per customer for that crap called heartland. That really annoys me since I dont want to see that junk but if I get sky, tvnz are getting paid if I watch it or not.
A lot of us rural ( and probably a few urban people as well I would imagine ) folk like a lot of shows on the Heartland channel. We can't stand Vibe, Food, The Box, Comedy channels and Prime to name a few, just goes to show - you can't please everyone all the time.
More HD sport and we will be happier.
