Us BBC license payers are paying for advert free content. And fair does, the BBC seems to have an excellent news service, brought out iPlayer before all the other commercial companies, and is one of the first with an HD Freeview channel.
Now, we do pay more that the usual Sky subscription (although how Sky has the barefaced cheek to charge you extra to watch Sport, and then STILL pump adverts at you is beyond me), and if it wasn't a condition of having a TV set (more or less) then perhaps less people would pay.
So we're paying over the odds for good content with no adverts, tell me why we're not allowed that paid for content on any platform we choose.
Anyway - what's the difference between a website and a mobile phone. I can already read the BBC news website on my Nokia S60.
