Reasons To Disagree
Maybe it was just the language barrier, but German TV seems to have waaay more ads that NZ TV. I don't think there is anything wrong with what we have now, although a few less per thirty minute program would be nice.

I was once watching a league game in aussie and they had an ad break during the game in the middle of the first half! you would never see that here lol

I have been out of New Zealand for 3 years, living in Singapore which has little ads and they just repeat over and over again, I miss New Zealand's ads

Reasons To Agree
There are too many and they're completely tasteless and crude.

Better to have ads than a licence fee. There are rather a lot, mind you - how about increasing the fees and having a few less?

never mind the comparison - there's too much adverting full stop! Especially by the bunch of grinning, simpering, sickos who peddle patent medicines!

Far too much - it makes watching TV a real chore!

Reasons for Remain Neutral
don't know about other countries , too many here
Haven't seen many foreign ad breaks, but sometimes I get quite weary of ads. On Desperate Housewives (I admitted I watch that?) there seem to be more ads than show-but does that mean we have more or less advertising than USA?
I don't mind ads in television shows but they should be left out in movies.
