Use to watch sky news each morning but Kay Burley really turn me off she was so rude to people she interviewed. I now watch GBNews who have poached many well known faces. In my view a much better news channel.

I too watch GBNews but only on catch-up as I binned my TV licence. Mostly in response to BBC remain bias. I haven't missed watching live TV. Most was recorded anyway and only the news watched live.

Something for voters to ponder. ..

I also should bin my TV licence because all my entertainments on sky, Netflix, amazon prime. Both sky news and the BBC are anti Boris.

I'm glad you came round to GB News Hugh as you weren't too keen in the beginning were you ?  I think it's great, of course I can't watch it live  :halo: :halo: :halo:

Do you think we'd be allowed to if we squinted?  :grin:

Cannot remember that Alex, so I will fall back on my age as a reason. I will play chicken and carry on paying for a TV licence its not worth the feeling of someone coming knocking on my door. The forking out not going to break the bank.

If you watch live TV then certainly you should pay. If the money didn't go to the BBC then I would willingly pay and put my set top boxes back on. As it is I'll stick with catchup, Prime and downloads.

My understanding if you can receive live TV you have to have a licence. :?: :?:

If you don't watch live TV, why should you pay for a BBC licence which is what it is, ITV doesn't receive any of the licence fee as far as I'm aware  ?
I've stuck to the rules and my telly aerial is unplugged, I haven't really missed live TV at all, Netflix is great.    On the odd occasion, reading a good write up from a BBC drama, I'll think 'I'd like to have seen that'  but that 'odd occasion' isn't worth paying £160 for.

Dramas? ..I'd like to watch a decent one but it seems that if it doesn't centre on a mixed-race marriage and various kinds of homosexuality it doesn't get made.. :angry:

The Responder starts Monday on BBC  :upvote: I love Martin Freeman, he plays the lead.

Probably cast as a transexual lesbian if it's on the BBC.
