What do you think the ads are? If you don't want ads you can subscribe to youtube red for $10 per month!
Well, ok, but that is the point! It's either ad-free, and then you pay something for it, or it's free but you have the ads. Nobody wants to pay for a service full of ads. I understand the costs of running radio and tv are high, but if that is so, then better damn good program! Was (is) the same in Italy. Paying the "canone RAI" is compulsory but nobody really does that. And today, with internet, skype, netflix and whatnot, it really makes less and less sense to make me pay for a supposedly public thing that I am never going to watch.

I always thought that paying for the Billag just because I have a screen in the house (duh!) is borderline criminal.
