    QNN has quilting ads before Fons and Porter shows but not Quilt in a Day.
    Some shows are broken up into 3 segments some run the full time.
    Its crazy. I do like having the shows full screen, its like watching TV.
    It is worth the 24 bucks a year. The only quilting shows they dont show is Simply Quilts, Her and Rickey Tims do their own thing.
    Oh and why we have so many ads. The government took off all its regulations and free interprise has taken advantage of it. Thats why credit cards can charge whatever interest they want. This happend back in the 80s and it has gotten steadily worse since.

    You're welcome Skeat. The ads on QNN aren't bad; just a box to the right of the video screen unless you go full screen.

    I did e-mail Quilters TV this morning and got a response. I quote it here because I don't want to mess it up in the translation:

    The ads are not from us. They came from the people that deliver our
    bandwidth and without warning. We are in the process of switching
    providers, but with over 3000 videos to move it will take us a couple
    weeks. If you want to see what our new system will look like, click on
    Marketplace on the right hand side. Sue Ann
    I'm sure it is sheer coincidence, but the ads aren't there now. If they pulled them because people spoke up, then kudos to them for listening to user feedback!

    OK, ads on regular (free) tv, but when you pay for the privilege (cable, satellite), grr. Even WORSE in my book is the ads going on WHILE the program is playing! For example, I am watching "Deadliest Catch" and they put up promos for another program! VERY distracting and frustrating!
    I'm with you. Every fifteen minutes they take up the bottom third of the screen WITH SOUND EFFECTS to promo other shows and they need to knock that off. It's very distracting.

    When cable came out, it was supposed to be commercial free since we were all paying for it.

    Now we're paying an arm and a leg for it and be besieged with excessive and annoying ads and promos.

    If I see one more male enhancement commercial, I'm going to blow a gasket.

    I am very rude to people who call me on the phone wanting me to buy something. After being bombbarded with ads from all sides, I refuse to have my phone taken over.
    My next purchase is a TIVO.
    I also have QNN but you do have to pay for it. Quilters TV is free.
    and you want to know what gets my goat!!??? When the tv ads play the same advert 2 and 3 times in a row!! I mean talk about brainwashing ya!!!!!! Make no wonder I never turn the tv on!!! I was never a tv person. When I do watch tv, I love the OLN channel, National Geographic channel, and other learning channels. Otherwise the tv is off and I just turn on some tunes and sew sew sew!!!!!!!!!!!!
