commcercials

when I watch a tv show online, why do I have to watch 20 commercials every few minutes, with several of them shown multiple times....... in a row.  Ridiculous!!!!!!

The networks place the commercials in the videos. Advertisers pay for them to be in the videos. The networks are want the money.

Re: commcercials

on 6/11, i tried to watch falling skies...i paused it for a couple of mins., then commenced a full 15 mins. of the SAME commercials over and over and over again. it took me well over 11/2 hour of watching the show. now that is ridiculous...i'm just starting to notice an improvement on the choppy video mess that has been going on formonths now...and da-da! we have to endure this...

Hi all,

 

I tested the latest episode of Falling Skies and all commercial time for me was under 5 minutes.

 

Can you please send any other URLs of the videos that you are trying to watch.

 

Thanks,
ComcastJoe
