A Device with which to obtain Vast amounts of money from the Public. The TV network provider demands moneys from the Public for receiving services from them repeats of old programs obscure sports events Sports events that have already been played films that have been out on video for at least 1 yr get the picture.. The TV network provider then Demands vast sums of money from Advertisers for Airing their Products and services to the Public. The Public pay to be Advertised to Nice & Legal Scam Like NETWORK MARKETING !

At last BSkyB is moving in the right direction by providing free hardware. Soon to be obsolete Hardware but it is Free !! Remove the adverts on Pay per view channels, show films before Video release then BskyB might improve on its market share !!

As pay per veiw becomes the norm rather than the occasional visual treat, Mr Murdoch will be rubbing his hands in delight. not only because of the profit he will be making but also because it will be yet another smack in the face of public broadcasting. Taking what was once within everybodys reach and restricting it to those who can afford it and have the equipment (which convienently he suppplies) to receive it.

Well, All I can say for the British public is that it is our own fault that there is Pay-Per-View in this country. If we had boycotted that Tyson/Bruno fight, then Pay-Per-View may never have caught on.
