If you live in a country that is funded entirely from advertising then i guess you're really lucky because you have a choice to use your tv just for watching dvd's on or playing computor games without having to pay extra. If you live in a country where government grants do the funding then although you are still paying for the priveledge to watch tv, you don't have what seems like an extra financial burden to deal with. In countries (like UK) a licence has to be paid which is cumpulsory if you watch tv no matter how little you watch. What are your views on tv licencing? Should advertising be the sole provider allowing people to watch freely? Is government funding a good idea or a bad idea? I personally would love a pay per programme model because i don't watch much tv but because i watch some and because even if i did'nt, i still watch dvd's, i still have to pay a licence fee which is an annoying extra financial burden. What tv if any is most worth paying for?
