the networks sell most of the commercials in 'broadcast' TV, but some are available through comcast to buy for local commercials. for Cable channels the networks mostly have sold all the programming time but do offer local companies like Comcast opportunities to sell - the commercials 'cover up' the one in the program.

TVgo is for out of home watching and is a link directly to a network feed. Comcast has nothing to do with commercials on TVgo channels. use of TVgo channels counts toward your data CAP too if you have a cap.
