Freeview Parody Video

I’ve spoken to a lot of people about the dodgy “anti-ad-skipping” Freeview brand lately.
Freeview is basically:
  1. A poor attempt at branding free to air TV
  2. An attempt to get manufacturers to make PVRs minus a button that skips forward 30 seconds (to skip ads)
  3. An estimation that the general public is stupid and that they don’t have smart friends!

Whilst Freeview is wrapped in a promise to supply more free to air channels, the unfortunate reality is that there is no new content. Channel 7 and Channel 9 have not taken up the new channels yet, and Ten has already been playing US sporting events on its OneHD for ages now.

I found this video on Smart House today…


Lesson: Don’t buy anything with Freeview written on it. Get a Windows Vista Media Center or a decent PVR instead.
