Skipping commercials

How do you skip the commercials.  My arrow works sometimes,  but the last couple of weeks it has not.  Get rid of the commercials during watching.  It's bad enough you have to watch all the commercials during a television show On Demand, but to also watch them on the internet is ridiculous!

watching network on demand does have commercials most of which can not be skipped. you can record shows with a DVR and skip what you will.

Even dvr'ed some network shows still aren't allowing me to skip network commercials. Fox, SyFy, and FF are bad about that.

no DVR recording stops fast forwarding. next time you think it is, while playing the recording hit the OK button. upper left corner probably says on-demand not DVR.

Re: Skipping commercials

These services started out to be premium priced because a customer paid to avoid commercials. You forced commercials on your customers without our ability to regulate them. For a premium price all commercials should be optional not a demand for service.

Wrong, I am watching Seal Team right now that I recorded last night on my DVR and I can’t fast forward

Same here. This is the last straw if it's a permanent feature. Customer loss will be huge! Can a rep chime in?
