See what you saying now, at least we agree that there is no such thing as FTA TV to a degree then assuming that we are buying goods that are advertised to us, makes sense that.
SKY and cable will and do fleece you but it is your choice, for what I get out of the BBC now then I say they are fleecing me out of £150 a year and for what? Just so we don't get commercial breaks. Whoopee do. Yet I have no choice in that due to an old fashioned idea about what items you happen to own in your own home.
Also perhaps not paying a TV License fee could help me afford a 335d maybe.
