Also, for those claiming that there would be no TV without Ad's, I beg to differ.
There are plenty of examples around the world of ad-free TV. Take the BBC, for example. But, shock horror, we have to pay a TV licence, which I know many Yanks think is just a step away from a Police State complete with armed airships hovering in the sky, troopers shooting children in the streets and everyone being chipped......
LOL Your BBC is owned by the government. The shows you watch are paid by your taxes.
"LOL", your wrong..... I even gave you the answer in my post and yet you still missed it. Bloody Americans...
We don't pay for it in taxes. Want another bite of the cherry?
Besides, what has that got to do with what I said? I was just pointing out there are ways to have ad-free TV. The BBC isn't the only example, by the way.
And the BBC makes damned site better programmes than many private networks who are only concerned by profit and then churn out drivel for the masses.
