Re: OTA networks...
said by Tomek:They always "forced ads". Afterall that is what they are selling - ads. The shows are merely there to get you to watch ads. It has been that way since the 1950's. Retransmission fees were added to recover income lost to people watching less ads. It merely supplements ad income.
So first they charge so much for retransmission and now they want to force ads too?
