Letter: Europe can save TV from Murdoch

Sir: As Bruce Springsteen once sang, "57 channels and nothing on". ("But who really wants all this new technology?" 29 October). Who wants Nicam Digital Stereo, widescreen or cinema-quality pictures when the quality of programming is so low? I would not mind having the old bleary black-and-white set if there was something worthwhile to watch. Two hundred channels of low-grade television cannot be described as consumer choice. Who needs new technology? Not me. Who needs more than two channels? Not me.

Who needs television? Now there is a question.
