Extra adds for on demand content?!

Extra adds for on demand content?!

We pay alot of money to have this service, and have to watch extra ads?!  On demend doesn't have extra ads on the cable box, so why do we have to endure extra ads if we watch the same content we paid for on-line?  Seems like we should get a service discount since extra ads have been added to watch the same stuff.  Thanks for charging us, then taking extra money from ad sponsors...

To have the rights to put most shows online (or on the TV for that matter) we are required by the owners of those shows to put in ads. That's just the nature of the business. If we did not show the ads, simply we would not have the shows at all. The content owners would not give it to us and you could not watch them at all. You will notice that when you watch the same shows on TV they have ads, in many cases much more ads than we play online.

Some of our premium partners like HBO, Showtime, Encore, Cinemax and Starz all have ad free business models so you can watch their shows and movies without interruption.
