I went to Quilters TV (http://www.quilterstv.com/) today, as was greeted by a Wal-Mart video ad. Yuck! I tolerated the ads that started to pop up at the bottom of the video screen, because I realize they need a revenue stream and I could always icon them - but having to watch an ad between videos is too much for me. I'd rather pay (and I joined QNN, so I do.) The fact that many of these programs originated thru PBS and are now 'commercial' just makes it worse.
Embroidery club at the machine dealers = trying to sell me something. Classes at the quilt shop = trying to sell me something. Now quilting shows = trying to sell me something. Please tell me I'm not the only one sick of seeing advertisements attached to everything!
