I tend to try and avoid commercial channels by watching on Tenplay or whatever thereby not having so many ads.....have got smart TV's in order to do this but live television, I probably watch more ABC and SBS
I watch a lot of SBS and ABC.I enjoy the type of programs on both of these channels,and while SBS does have ads,they are not as prevalent as the major commercial channels! Occasionally I watch the commercial ones if there is a particular program I want to see,but I always have a book handy to enjoy when the ads come on!!
I watch both, depends on where my favourite show is airing. I normally record the shows and watch them at a time of my own convenience, and therefore ads and commercials don't bother me as I can forward them.
A bit of both these days but the level of advertising is extraordinary. ABC has measured, insightful reporting which is great. I did watch commercial news not that long ago and one of the 'articles' was about the programmes (as in infotainment type programmes) that were soon coming up on that same network....news??
BUT, the Commercial ones' I ALWAYS Tape, that way I can not only 'time-shift' but also FAST FORWARD the useless adverts which now come in blocks of 10-12, ie 5-7minutes' worth! Gives me the sterks to the nth degree!
Commercial TV, but only if my husband is watching something that I'd like to see. When the ads come on, he'll change channels to another show. We do watch a couple of SBS show a week, then I watch all the ABC drama shows I want to watch, on view later, while sitting up on my bed.
