I didn't miss any such point, your negative view towards the TV3 channels (and also of Virgin Media) including how you feel they are perceived by Sky customers is clear to all. You claim that people you know do X and people on other forums are saying X but so what, it does not disprove my original point in any way.
I didn't come to a TV presentation forum to hear what you think other people think, you've challenged my point, fine, but there is no need for a lengthy debate about it.
I'm negative towards lots of things in Irish Broadcasting. TV3 is one of them, they've done a huge amount of damage to broadcasting and the Irish Exchequer in the past. But I also have problems with RTE, and others but this thread is not about them. I have also said that I'm willing to give TV3 another chance because of Virgin Media, but the way UTV Ireland staff were treated would raise doubts.
Your original point was that the stations are a great bargaining chip for Virgin. I disagree entirely. You also said that the majority of viewers won't manually tune in ITV. I am not aware of any that haven't done that at this point (people have had over 10 years to do it.) Obviously there are some that haven't but I haven't come across them recently.
You didn't come here to hear what I think, that's fair enough... Just ignore me as I'm sure others do. I'll help by not responding to you from this point onwards. But if you come to any online forum you'll get points of view that are not same as your own and you'll get debate, why else would you bother logging on?
My final point on this is that I have noticed a pattern down through the years, where I or others criticize the TV3 group, there will always be someone coming along to give out, bully and shut down comment on the subject, usually from new accounts...
