You know, it's not the ads I object to so much as the time slots. I'm sick and tired of only getting half a show because some sporting event or political speech ran over and my TiVo only recorded the first half of the show. When I try and buffer by recording the next show, I can't, because I'm already recording 2 things. Just show me a menu, let me pick a show and let me stream it to my house when I want to see it. You can keep commercials in if you want,
But time slots still equal revenue. The show that's #1 in it's time slot will cost more to advertise on than the other shows, even thought it may be #25 in the ratings.
