Why is FTA given a bad rap? Is it 24/7 MAFS and The Block? If I looked through EVERY service, FTA and SVOD, I will see stuff I don't like, stuff I do like, stuff I can see is very good but not of interest to me. News, etc.
It seems to be trendy to bag FTA.
Because they are still stuck in the linear world, their streaming platforms are dire both in UI and quality. I only have one tv with an antenna connection to it, its the kitchen one and I have almost no reason to turn it onto it. Some people will just have it on showing stuff because that is what they have always done. Those people are dropping in number.
And don't forget the adverts - every 7 mins of program punctuated by 3 mins of adverts. Why would you subject yourself to this torture when paid SVOD has shown us a world where you can watch content advert free?
You have to pay for that. If you want to watch free vod then you still have plenty of advertising.
