Jas777:JimmyH:Jas777: It is probably a good thing that people here are still in the minority because if the practises here were the majority the whole concept of FTA TV would be changed quite drastically.
To be honest, I doubt I would miss it much.
FTA TV pretty much consists of ad-ridden dreck. Local content is banal twaddle, and overseas content is years old. Even with recording, unless I really want to see (which is very rare) it reaching for the remote every 7-8 minutes to get past the latest screaming interruption about the latest greatest sale is too much of a pain in the backside to make the experience worthwhile.
Some of the sky channels (History, Discovery, Comedy, Jones) aren't much better.
It always astounds me that, apparently, there are people who diligently sit through that drivel.
The question is though if FTA went would you be willing to 'PAY' to watch TV? Because if the majority didn't watch adverts and/or downloaded everything then where will the revenue to produce TV come from?
Gilco2: hate to admit it but minimum 6 hours daily. 2 hours TV1 breakfast show then mid day news then AFV then Prime news then TV1 news and after that different channels depending whats on. Enjoy different outdoor wilderness type programs Choice have. Like Coast and Ray Mears Wilderness etc
