Re: No more commercials

Not quite.  You pay for Comcast providing you with, among other things:

(a) the ability to watch local channels with a decent quality picture - or, in some cases like mine, where I live too far away from the broadcast antennas - watch local channels at all;

(b) the ability to read through a program guide, and even search for programs;

(c) On Demand programs.

 

One thing I agree with you on: get rid of the commercials put there by Comcast (as opposed to by the broadcasting stations) - this was one of the reasons I left Comcast about eight years ago (what happened was, Comcast would replace a channel's late night infomercials with ones of its own, but somebody forgot about the switch back from Daylight Saving Time one year, so the infomercials replaced an hour of programming for a week or two).

Each national network reserves time during its programming for local commercials. Comcast and other telecom providers insert those commercials into the allotted slots.
