BBC coverage of golf is awful. The commentary these days borders on the farcical. Peter Alliss drones on continually about anything but golf. He's inculcated his other commentators with the same diatribe. Sky do a much better job of covering all sports.

Good. Don't like Sky golf coverage, amazed people don't get mad that they get that and pay for it, it doesn't show in my opinion. I know some people much prefer it but I'm not one of them, and I know others who are the same. Everyone's taste is different though, so fair enough.

To be fair at least it is a movie, and the bbc I player I'm sure must have a "by using you agree to have a tv licence" warning somewhere. I also suspect many have one. It can't go into freebies due to this so I think its in the right category?

It was not designed to be "nanny"...I have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye made for ITV from 1982!



Though I've never watched it, you offer up Sky news as a (solitary) example of free Sky TV viewing...? Precisely how politically unbiased do you think that little number is from Murdoch?

Amongst other goals the BBC was designed to educate and stimulate the British Public and beyond. So, in some sense, it was both nanny and teacher.

You do not have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye (whatever that may be). The BBC offers a wealth of material for public consumption; you are not restricted to TV productions, new or old. The choices you make about what you watch, listen to or read are your choices. However, if you peruse the BBC web-sites you will find a massive archive of information covering myriad aspects of life.

A 40p per day tax, I you so consider it, is, in my opinion an absolute bargain. I would far rather pay for the upkeep of the BBC than fund munitions production or HS2 railway projects. We are all paying considerably more than 40p per day in recompense for the criminal activities of a mere handful of bankers, failed IT schemes and environmental cleansing.

You are free to gripe about the BBC if you must. But consider the pleasure it brings to millions of people young or old, day in, day out.

And, if not directly, they are too often functionally steered via his right-wing media juggernauts. Even "New" Labour's once leader, and our PM for years, was a ventriloquists dummy for Murdoch's personal politics.The BBC has been a vast institution for decades. Given the prevalent misogyny of a patriarchic population it was bound to have some bad apples in its baskets. Then again, the same could be said for religious and charitable organisations. "Proven liars" is a term applicable to every corner of every organisation. So, why single out the BBC?

A few new freebies down, there is a thread about Leeds V Sheffield Wednesday on Sky Mix, no one seems to be moaning that isn't technically freebie, as you'll need some sort of Sky subscription to access the channel.. Bit of consistency folks...

wish bbc would give up on football, or at least put it on another channel if they insist on buying a few games. It messes up the regular scheduling of other programs that people tune into every week/day like clockwork.

Original Poster

Thanks for all the comments guys, this has opened a can of worms!

What I was trying to get at was Pay per View was not required with BT/Sky or whoever to view these games. If you are not paying for a sports subscription, there are not a lot of games on terrestrial TV and maybe this would be welcomed by some.

Having posted some BT Showcase free games recently, I have not had comments like "it's not free, you have to pay for electricity and a TV to watch it on" for example. Similarly, it's a bit like a magazine that you may always buy and this month there is a "freebie" on the cover. What is free is open to interpretation I guess.

Well, I hope at least some people can use the info, and as always, criticism is not unwelcome, everyone has their own opinion on whether a post is useful or not. Hats off to bumbaclart for opening the debate.
