Commercials OnDemand

I understand that commcials come with network TV but why can't they be fast forwarded? It's a pain to sit through them OnDemand when I already have to sit through them during LiveTV.

on demand license fees have to be paid in some way and most on-demand with commercials do not allow skipping as that is their revenue stream (for the producer not Comcast).

Because they want OnDemand to be treated like Live TV.

Hi, bs44. Rustyben is right. Sometimes as a way around this, you can use the page up/down button to jump ahead. That will often then let you FW and RW from there on for that segment.
