As for the scheduler issue, what you say about scheduling may be true of tinpot channels such as ĎTalking Picturesí, for example, which I hear is run from a garden shed! But the bigger, popular channels are a different proposition.
Can you explain to me how the act of scheduling is proportionately more expensive for larger channels than smaller channels? A huge media conglomerate could do it for buttons across swathes of channels across numerous countries.
