What is it with cable TV? There is certainly some quality on cable - if I watch anything it is Discovery Channel, Bloomberg and Australia's ABC Asia-Pacific.
I guess I was naive, but I expected cable TV to be advertisement free - after all, you are paying for it.
But you get this irritating ad break every 8 minutes or so, just like free-to-air stations. When you are engrossed in something meaty, it is damn annoying. At least ABC gives us some uninterrupted programmes.
But I keep paying the subscription - I can always tape the show and play it back later to get rid of the ads...
