You're only partially correct. Corporations can donate directly to a campaign, but they are limited in how much they can donate. They can donate any amount they wish to a PAC or multiple PACS. Now, PACS aren't supposed to donate to campaigns, but they can. Additionally, congresscritters receive compensation from corporations in the form of "after public service" appointments, appoitments for family members, vacations, stock options and many, many, many other ways.

It really depends, some programming I watch (Daily show, Colbert Report, Castle) rarely has commercials or they have this option to watch and extended commercial first and then no commercials for that episode during the show. I agree, it's annoying. I'd rather not have to see commercials for user supported tv, but HULU is owned by the big baddies of the media industry so it's inevitable.
