Why so many Ads?

Why so many Ads?

Maybe it's just the TBS shows, in this case I was trying to watch some episodes of Seinfeld, but I had to stop watching because every time it would pause for an ad, it would play eight 30 second ads before going back to the show. I'm okay with 2 or 3, but not 8, that's ridiculous. Not only that, but if I closed the app to do something and come back to it later, it would play 8 more ads before starting, even if I was 30 seconds before the next ad break! I couldn't take it, so I gave up. Is this an app issue or just a TBS issue?

I forgot to mention this is on an Iphone 5.

most likely tbs.   Have you ever watched a tbs movie?  an hour and a half movie on tbs goes 3 hours, they love commercials on that network.

It's TBS.

 

Ads in anything you watch online or in an app- from news videos to tv shows and movies- are inserted by the network/news vendor. They get paid to run those ads and they are not dumb enough to turn down a revenue stream.

I just tried watching Seinfeld too! 8 friggin commercials?? No way, I don't have time for that. How useless. How about I don't watch at all and they don't get anything for making it completely unbearable. Just plain dumb. Stupidity running amuck!
