I think the TQS owners would seriously laugh to have themselves compared to the multi-million/billion dollar industries of Amazon, Google and Youtube. I pay $100 a year for my Amazon Prime membership and I see advertising out the wazoo every time I log onto Amazon to even select a video.

Sorry, Lisa, I must respectfully disagree with you on this one.

However, I really wish the Bernina and Gammill advertisements would get changed once in awhile. I want to smack those models silly after watching them for years. :lol: Not Linda Taylor, of course.

I've never had a problem with the ads, in fact I really like some of the Bernina ones. In my opinion, what we pay for the subscription to the best "quilt guild" in the world is minor compared to all the wonderful info we get. I have made some wonderful friends here.

I presume that the membership fee we pay would be significantly higher if TQS would not have sponsors who get that little bit of time during the shows to remind us who they are and what products they sell. I rather be able to afford the membership and have these very few and short adverts. They are not even long enough to make a cup of coffee. You can always fast forward them. And think of all the valuable extras that membership brings! :)

Disappointed: Paid content shouldn't have ads. 07 Sep 2014 12:02 #121326

I'm a new subscriber. Current practice in online media is that if you pay for content, you need not suffer through advertisements.

I was very disappointed that my paid quilt show content includes advertisements in the videos.

The only content that I pay for that still has advertisements is cable tv. Do you really
want to be in that category? :-(

Netflix, youtube, spotify, amazon prime, are all examples of providers where paying a fee comes with (the expected) ad-free content.
