    I agree about ads. Some of the channels even have 'breaks' in the ads. Mind you BBC has advertising too, for its own programmes!!~~

    Still would not pay for services. The TV Licence is too much as it is~

    Yes, but I get almost 100 channels "free" from am aerial. Not that we watch most of them. In Oakville we get "spotty" Aerial service of about 4 channels.

    I am with Cogeco and their TVO service. The TVO gives me both Netflix and YouTube and I confess to watching YouTube quite a bit as they have many documentary programs like the A1 series, Air Ambulance, Won't Pay, we'll take it away, etc.

    Agree, it's a ripoff. They tried to introduce it here many years ago and there was practically rioting in the streets. The adverts don't bother me, I just zone out when they are on.

    Just re-watched a Neil Oliver "Coast" special. Lots of work being done in Orkney which suggests the Orkney was the 'origin' for all the Stone Circles in the British Isles. The Ring of Brodgar and all the associated neolithic structures pre-date Stonhenge etc. A Google search for "orkney capital of britain" will shed some light~~
