Show On Demand Getting Cut Off By Commercials

Hi,

 

I was trying to watch the most recent episode of Sons of Anarchy on demand today.  In the middle of the scene before the commercials each time, the show was cut off mid-scene for the commercials.  When it returned, it came back to the next scene, thereby skipping part of the episode. This is extremely frustrating; I even missed the end of the episode.

So, do you know why the commercials keep cutting in early?

Had the very same problem, very same show, 2 days ago. Without warning, a commercial will suddenly appear mid-scene (mid-dialogue even), and the show will then resume well past where it left off. It appears the ads are cutting in before they're supposed to, overwriting up to 60 seconds of show that would normally make up the end of each segment.

 

I rely on OnDemand to keep caught up with this and many other shows. I'm willing to accept the lack of FF as a necessary evil, but "blacking out" entire parts of the show essentially renders OnDemand useless, which I have a hard time believing Comcast would do for the sake of a few extra ads.

 

Please tell me there's a fix for this...

Thanks for being creative and snarky and moving that post when we really wanted an answer to the OP's question. Comcast at its finest.
