After all, if you want the News, you can get it on-the-hour on radio, or
full version on the Internet.
As for Documentaries, if you miss them on TV, they end up on DVD anyway.
Quiz shows, serial Dramas, Comedies? If any good, they too come out on
DVD.
The commercial channels (so-called free-to-air), are crammed full of
adverts...
Sport? Go to the game, or play sport yourself? A news summary is always
available.
Hence, pull the plug on direct TV - and use DVDs, Radio, Newspapers, and
Internet?
