Why the 30 second skip no longer working for On Demand

Its bad enough we can't FF that when viewing most  programs using On Demand to bypass commercials because of how networks control content  but we have gotten used to that BUT not being able to use the 30 sec skip is unacceptable and why have the function if we can't use it???  We can FF thru commercials when they are recorded so this 'control ' to force us to view commercials on programs not on the DVR is archaic.  I see that this was brought up years ago on the forums but its locked now I didn't see an  explanation.  We record so many programs and series  but sometimes the 'record all episodes' does not work well or we want to view a past episode of something and to have to deal with the commercials ....grrr. This week I decided to 'trial' watch some episodes of a show on USA that I had not set to record at all and could not skip thru it and I figured it was time to ask why not? Thanks
