I used to get the guide in the Sunday Mail,but I found it was downgradred hugely and a total waste of money.I am not a big tv watcher so I just check the guide which is online each day,if I do feel like watching TV.The tv which my son bought has a guide accessed with its remote control,so I often just check that!
I can't remember the last time I made a plan to watch a TV show! Therefore no guide necessary. I get my partner to download any TV shows I might be interested in and then I get to watch them whenever I like (usually one episode on daycare days).
Have been buying 'TV WEEK' since it was first published, decades ago!
Just love its' organization of shows' in columns, easy to read & 'encircle' with felt tip pen, fave shows to watch.
Also like reading the 'info' & 'gossip' pages! Filling out the crosswords'!
If there's a TBA, I just check it out on 'Jumpin'!
We used to buy Monday's Sydney Morning Herald, but when the price went up, we stopped buying it, & now my husband just switches channels all the time, until he finds he show he wants to watch, or he may look on line. sometimes.
We use the free TV program in the Sunday paper. Mostly they get the programs right but when you're particularly looking forward to watching a program that was advertised and find it's not on, it's so annoying.
