Anyone else avoid DPR tv reviews?
56

I really dislike reviews and interviews on here using video.  And thus avoid them.

Why:

I can read anywhere no matter how noisy, but for video I need to carry headphones with me.

I like relaxing and reading whenever possible.

They use a lot of data bandwidth allowance when I am out and about.

The video producer takes the pace of information acquisition away from me, it's becomes their choice not mine, which is always frustratingly slow.

It's inconvenient to watch in many situations where reading would be possible (use your imagination for those).

Usually the content has far less depth. It reminds me of 'bread and circus'. Feed the masses and entertain, it keeps people quiet.

Does anyone else loath the videos and would prefer to read?
