This may divide people but remember when there was a huge market for the premium rate TV quiz shows?
I thought the ITV Play channel was an excellent crack at actually getting it right with varied shows that even linked into ITV brands (This Morning Puzzle Book, Rover Return Pub Quiz etc) and excellent presenter choices too.
If you were stupid enough to lose your money calling in then obviously it was a ripoff but I made around £20,000 - £30,000 back in the day simply by using the free web entry and until recently still had the letters to prove it! Don't get me wrong it was hard work and required a lot of commitment but the £50 here and there soon started adding up! (I only ever got through to when ITV1 started to screen them once and won an easy £2000 anagram puzzle on Make Your Play)
I did actually 'call in' to the pub quiz element of Rover's Return as there was no web entry for that as I started to notice I was getting put through to the studio a lot, presumably the winner was chosen by the number of correct answers and then time to answer, I had a laptop next to the tele frantically Googling back then which may have given me a slight advantage
Don't get me wrong I couldn't stand the other quiz channels with their absolutely impossible number puzzles etc but ITV I felt gave it a good go and it was sad, though probably inevitable that it only lasted a year due to the bigger picture regarding premium rate competitions. Plus, as much as I enjoyed Quizmania they were right to get their wrists slapped over the whole 'rawlplug' debacle!
