He's got a little confused. The TV licence is 120 a year. Or else I'm only licensed to watch TV in July of last year....*goes off to check*...

And they still give us Fame Academy...

As far as I know it is 120 a year, not month. Unless you're over 75 in which case they pay it for you. The rest of the license money goes on telling people over 75 that their license will get paid for them.

*wanders of muttering*

Also you can pay that in installments. 10 a month doesn't seem so outrageous to me, considering we don't have 5 minutes of adverts. But considering you could just video all the programs you like then FF through the ads, suddenly it seems like a rip-off!

Whoops, I forgot to moan about Sky.

BBC: Paid for by license, no ads.
ITV: Paid for by adverts, no license fee
Sky: Paid for by license AND has adverts AND has Pay-Per-View

And the bastards STILL claim they're losing money. Maybe if they didn't have crap shows like Beat The Crusher (does anyone remember that) then they might not lose so much. Idiots.

They don't have to pay the licence fee towards the cost of the BBC as that is a UK tax. It has probably changed now there is satellite TV but when I went to Ireland in the mid-eighties it was noticable that the further you got from the UK the taller the TV aerials got.

We'll be getting satellite soon. Which means more channels. Hopefully something that I can see Futurama on. (Cartoon network?) My dad just got fed up with the crappiness of the cable.
