The OFF button and channel buttons are on the remote for a good reason. It gives you the viewer the power of choice. I use it quite regularly to avoid Eastenders where murders, rapes, robberies and arson frequently appear. I don't want to watch so I flick the switch. It is called freedom of choice! So why watch Top Gear if you don't like it? Flick the switch then you do not have to go through the trouble of complaining "Simples"
