The full history of this quote. Richard Serra, 1973:

…In commercial broadcasting the viewer pays for the privilege of having himself sold. It is the consumer who is consumed. You are the product of t.v. You are delivered to the advertiser who is the customer…

Wether you pay or not, you are the product.
