Now i dont pay my TV licence to have adverts shoved in my face and thats what is increasingly becoming more aparent. It annoys the hell out of me so much. For example. I was watching the snooker today and Ray Stubbs said on at least 2 occassions "Welcome to the 888.com World Snooker Championships". Now correct me if im wrong, but i dont think he needed to say 888.com unless 888.com had paid someone money to do so. And that in my eyes is advertising. Someone is paying the BBC (or someone connected to the BBC) money to advertise their product and i dont pay my licence for that. I dont think 888.com would pay anywhere near the amount of money they have in sponsorship to the BBC if they didnt think it would go out on the TV as the auditorium is only 300 capacity or there abouts. On another more subtle level, football is full of it. I know most matches are not exclusive to the BBC, but when it is do i really have to watch hundreds of samll banners behind the players when they are interviewed? Also, the BAFTAS "sponsored by Orange" was anothger example of obvious advertising. I know this is a very minor niggle and alot of problems in the World are far greater, its just i get annoyed when we are played for fools, such as paying alot for a TV licence to not have adverts, but the BBC is full of em. I would quite happily forfeit my TV licence and promise never to watch a BBC channel again. Rant over.
