Re: Seems a good deal to me
"Try living in Au/NZ for a bit with only Sky at 50 quid/month that is 40% advertising by time."
SKY Subscription is optional. Do you get legally threatening letters because you don't subscribe to SKY?
Theres a difference between threats and marketing material.
If you did, you would just vpn/proxy to sites where the video material is available thereby evading the need for license. But what if you dont use TV at all except for DVD, computing and games console? You're sill liable to intimidation tactics.
You dont know how good you have it. Try living in the UK .
