Due to the nature of my busy schedule, I rarely watch TV, but when I do... soapie, soapie, soapie, garbled mnet, and soapie. I may have the fortune of switching to cricket... when SA is not playing. Added to the fact that 1 hour programs are actually 20 minutes, the rest consumed by adverts you have witnessed 30 times that week (I did mention, I don't watch much TV), and at the end of the year it's TV license time, time to pay for all the adverts.
Tuning to DSTV you say? where you pay a dozen times more per year for a dozen more repeats? Let's not get started on the compact version, where they decide what limited channels you watch, and then choose the ones you least want to see in the first place.
But don't despair, the future of television is a stone throw away, the glamour, the glitz... Junk, in DIGITAL.
