Someone said :
Since Irish legislation was made less stringent re. access to TV, RTE decided to cut back on subtitles 'due to financial constraints.'
Well, in order to save money, why not simply not remove the sound track. Hmm, what's that you say? you can't, because it's necessary? So are bloody subtitles.
Before anyone thinks I am talking about myself, hold your horses.
I am not a real TV watcher. Yet I was talking to elderly people who suffered age-related hearing loss, and they were quite upset at the removal of subtitles from their favourite tv programmes.
What's 'Good on TV' has now changed for these people.
Wow! Are you serious... that's disgraceful
