Of course I watch the news, however N24, n-tv and CNN are just as good for me as the public news. Also, newspaper and internet are good sources as well.
The problem I have with these fees is that it's mandatory. If you don't watch it you still have to pay. That is unacceptable, they should scamble the public channels and give out decoders to those that want to watch it.
Sure quality news are important, but you can't force everyone to watch it, which is what happens everyday at 8pm on all public channels. On top of that, the public news are not objective in my opinion.
Yes, the fee is way to high and the reason I believe it's a rip off is because they want to introduce a 15 Euro monthly fee for PCs, that is outrageous! What would be the justification for that? They just made this up.
That quote was rather in respect to the involuntary charge which does not exist in the US, neither in Lithuania.
Of course we all like ad free TV
, but it doesn't even work without ads on the public channels.
So what about France, the UK and all other countries? How much do they pay? Are they forced to pay it, too?
