I personally agree with you. And IMO each program should be made available in 2 versions - free to view with ads or paid without. However, I think there was a study (I can't find link to it) that showed majority of people don't want to have to make a choice and/or effort to find something specific to watch. They basically WANT to watch whatever is on now.
