Advertising on free to air television has reached a point where there is no entertainment, only advertising. The executives at the various channels are only after profit not entertainment, consequently the average viewer is going to Harvey Norman and buying a Personal video recorder, recording the programmes they want and skimming through the adds. soo.. to catch up the Television stations introduce other channels that broadcast thirty/forty/fifty year old rubbish, filled with advertising. The free to air channels are killing the goose that laid the golden egg, they are sacrificing entertainment for profit.
My advice, get a personal video recorder, record all the programmes you want, create a library and skim through the adds. ...do it now and tell the channels to get ###ed, we have had enough.
