Why need them if you have internet.... WHAT ABOUT THOSE THAT DON'T?

Child poverty is sky rocketing, young families can even heat homes yet there going to have money spare for internet? Or if they do, I doubt they will have enough data to get episode of Hey duggie, before wiping out their months uses.

I did raise this same point, with the closure of BBC3.

People really need to get there heads out of there backsides. liner channels have an extremely important part to play for the BBC for many many years to come. Sky don't care about cutting back on channels because if people can afford SKY tv they will be able to afford via another means ie web or beaned right in to there heads.
This doesn't feel like an argument for Metropol, but for those in receipt of Universal Credit BT offer a package with 35Mbps broadband for £15/month including 600 mins worth of calls. That's £1.75/month more than the license fee.

Surely, if cost cutting is your aim, losing access to linear TV and the BBC is lower hanging fruit than losing your ability to communicate with the outside world without leaving your home.
Your right, this isn't the place, but that deal only possible if you already had a PC, that luxury many can not afford. Many also can't afford the TV licences. I know of schools that have had to bend over backwards to help number of pupils because there have no access to paperless operations.

This is why we need BBC and ITV in there current forms

You do realise it's no longer the year 2006 and a personal computer is no longer required to access the internet?

The discussion over the past few posts has not been meta enough for my liking. TV Live Forum is over there.

I'm not sure why I'm subjecting myself to the BBC One thread. Some people like it! Some people hate it!

I'm assuming, based on his username, toast.

Everything else is up for debate.

I decided not to even participate in the BBC One new idents thread until 3.20am. I thought it'd be better for my sanity to leave it to everyone else to post and then evaluate my thoughts before posting.

I think it just needs Rob to post “yeah, they’re alright I suppose” and lock the thread.
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.
