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
by Finy
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 don't own a TV, so commercials are a thing of the past for me :)
I mainly now watch abc because of the ads which I hate
Channel ten is what I watch more of

Pretty much solely the ABC because it has most of what we want to watch (ABC kids for the little ones, the news for me and shows like QI and Spicks and Specks).
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.
Wish I had your tech knowhow.

I just watch whatever I want to watch without much
regard for the channel it's on. The kids watch mostly ABC because their children's programs are so good.
More ABC and SBS these days as I have become far more selective about how I spend my viewing time. The same old recycled pulp gets a bit wearing.
Often watch ABC or SBS...but also comm TV, mute button pressed always when ads come on,

I watch a range of TV. Unfortunately my SBS coverage isn't great at the moment which is ruining my World Cup!
I do like watching ABC and SBS, but my two main shows are on Ten and Eleven.

We watch mainly channel 7, but also enjoy ABC programs.
I've always been an ABC fan except for the 6pm news slot when I tend ot watch 7 because my husband is addicted to the two preceeding quiz shows.
T Box tape all commercial TV shows that I want to see and watch ABC the rest of the time, mainly because of the ADS which I detest.
We do not own a tv, but I used to enjoy both abc and sbs. Ads really do my head in.

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??
I like abc but also have foxtel so change as desired.
ABC & SBS about 20%, Commercial the rest.

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.
