    Good for them! I love public television, and it deserves to be ad-free. The only caveat is pledge drives every few months, but sometimes even those can be fun.

      This can't be bad: in any country where households who own TVs/radio pay an annual tax, there shouldn't be commercials on the TV/radio the tax goes to. This is the way it already is in most countries that have TV tax and state TV.

      Just to clarify, "public TV" and "state TV" aren't equivalent. Our (US) main public TV of course is PBS, which is nonprofit, collectively owned by the stations and funded through donations and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which in turn does get some government funding (we in the US of course don't have TV tax).
