Re: Telly Tax or Adverts
What I described is what we did in Finland and quite frankly I am fully prepared to pay for not having to see any adverts. There are other channels for that, and then there is this question about domestic "home made" programs, I doubt Netflix would have "made" say Yes Minister or Monty Python or will ever "make" anything particularly English programs. There are other things to remember too that the BBC is supposed to deliver that no other channel have to deliver.
I also agree with technois comment.
The quality question is an other topic and who wants more of this and less of that, as the story goes one man was interviewed about the radio programs and how he liked them, and he did very much, and when they asked him what he listened to he said the time signal.
Personally I spend a lot more time on YouTube.
