I reckon it is also something to do with a) the awful ads British TV now airs; awful, b) the news programs do seem to be little puppies lately of the government to the point of boredom and tackiness (plus UK news is very UK, not very worldwide), c) the terrible new programs and d) the incessant repeats. I live outside the UK but have a Sky box but am likely to ditch it soon. What I am saying is I wonder if it is a question of switching off rather than switching over. But yes, I can go online everyday and look at 4 or 5 news sites around the globe to get a much broader and better picture.
