Commercials are too long!

You are losing customers  that want to watch comcast videos, the Ads are way too long and i refuse to sit thru them.

A ten second ad would be much more effective for all!! or no ad at all because i walk away , it is too long!!

Re: Commercials are too long!

I am frustrated with the Ads on the home page when reading news.

 

It use to be terrible waiting 15 for each video, but now it ranges from 25 seconds to 45 seconds.

 

How can i work around or not see ads at all. I already pay some 170 dollars to Comcast and really hate wasting my time on ads that i will not use. In fact if I see an ad i will make sure NOT to use the product.

Re: Commercials are too long!

I will not spend 30 seconds of my time watching these ads - Comcast is going to ose customers or at least have customers use a different home page.

30 seconds is ridicuous.

Re: Commercials are too long!

I find all the videos are available elsewhere, either without commercials or with the ability to skip them.  Thus, I have no reason to ever visit Comcast's home page.

Re: Commercials are too long!

The ad's to the video' are much too long, 5seconds would be livable,not what you have now. Since you probably won't change, is there a way for me to remove that section of the browzer?

Re: Commercials are too long!

I was so frustrated, I just had to comment as well. I am amazed that there is a forum about this ! I complain constantly, but each time I submit the request to abolish those terribly LONG

30 second videos it goes on def ears! Smiley Sad
