Problems with viewing TV show online

It took 2 hours to play a 42 minute show on my computer. It kept freezing up and playing and replaying commercials one after the other. When the show finally resumed it would not continue in the right spot....sometimes it would restart from the beginning, other times from the previous screen...right before more commercials.  Windows would send a message saying that Comcast has stopped responding. I tried using the back button, using the refresh button, signing out of comcast and signing back in, and restarting my computer. I only watched the episode on line because that episode was not available on demand; it was skipped. I ended watching more than my share of commercials trying to watch on line.

It's great to report those issues, however, often the same episodes are available from the website of the tv network that air's the show.   fwiw: Sometimes searching Google we can find websites streaming the same thing w/o any commercials also.
