Wish I could afford pay TV just so that I can get away from all the REPEATS, REPEATS, REPEATS!!!!! But, I can't afford pay TV, so my lot in life during non rating periods is set in stone. The only saving grace is buying dinner at a local RSL, then watching the A-League game on the big screen.
Not only are we subjected to masses of rehashed blah, blah stuff, we are also watching shows that are repeats of repeats, or repeats.
But wait, the rating season begins, the new shows are starting to emerge, and yes, we are being asked to watch Encores the next day on the sister channel. So, there are now re-runs withing 24hrs of the new shows.
But wait, there's more. I challenge all free to air channels to program their shows so they start and finish as advertised. On the rare occasions I want to record a program, in most cases I either miss the beginning or the end.
I guess it comes down to "you get what you pay for".
