Xfinity commercials interrupting live broadcasts

Several times in recent days I have been watching live TV (usually a news program) when an Xfinity commercial breaks into the middle of the show.  Anything that would have aired during the time the commercial is playing is lost, and it is always an Xfinity commercial.

 

Today's example was watching Next with Kyle Clark on Denver's NBC channel.  At 6:13pm a very interesting story was interrupted for me to see an Xfinity ad.  Why?  Are you trying to lose customers?  This needs to stop!  It may be a local issue - I don't care.  Who needs to be told to not play an Xfinity commercial at the wrong time?

I have been trying to find an answer to this. It happens often enough that I’m getting really annoyed. I am a regular news watcher and it always disrupts something I don’t want to miss. I’ve never experienced this until maybe the latter half of 2020 and still in 2021.
