More Commericals??? Really???

What's wrong with stupid comcast xfinity.com?

I'll tell ya.  Stupid commericals in the most tv shows, yeah.

It's not Hulu, we are paying for crappy service. 

If I wanted commericals, I would have just watch normal air shows.

That's why most people have DVRs at home. 

If I'm going to pay to watch stupid commericals during my shows,

I should get paid by freakin greedy comcast.

To have the rights to put most shows online (or on the TV for that matter) we are required by the owners of those shows to put in ads. That's just the nature of the business. If we did not show the ads, simply we would not have the shows at all. The content owners would not give it to us and you could not watch them at all. You will notice that when you watch the same shows on TV they have ads, in many cases much more ads than we play online.

Some of our premium partners like HBO, Showtime, Encore, Cinemax and Starz all have ad free business models so you can watch their shows and movies without interruption.

Re: More Commercials??? Really???

Joe, Does the content provider require that you also put their commercials on shows

that function under on demand 2 days later? If in fact this is true, then this is in fact

punishing people who pay for the on demand feature.
