Watching 10-12 minutes of commercials with every half hour show; they should be paying me to watch cable tv rather than me paying them. I pay a hell of a lot of money to allow those stupid commercials into my living room. Most are so extremely irritating, they should also be paying for my blood pressure medicine.

This makes me glad I stopped watching television in January 2009. I don't even get a signal so even if I bought a television, I couldn't watch it.

I never saw this coming though. Now how I watch television, if I watched television, is subject to arrest and prosecution?

I MIGHT be more inclined to watch TV again and suffer advertisments IF 1. they gave out free TVs and / or 2. They put ALL the ads BEFORE and/or AFTER the programme.

when I was kid and I'm not that old I remember there used to be a commercial every 15 minutes and it was usually a maximum of 3.
Now it seems it's every 7 minutes with 5 in a row.
It ruins the enjoyment of the flow of the show.
Not to mention the volume is twice out loud.
They couldn't make advertising more obnoxious if they tried.
Hence why it's killing off TV.
And now they are screaming like stuffed pigs that people are trying to avoid ads at all costs.
Not to mention why is it the same bloody ads every commercial break? It seems there are only about 10 companies max who can afford advertising.

They are afraid you'll miss a subliminal message that a business has paid good money for you to see.

The woman below caught the word KILL on tv while taking a photo. Sorry for the ad before the video, you can skip it after just a couple of second. If this one incident is BS (I don't know but it seems pretty real to me), there is a 4 part documentary on YouTube about the various subliminal messages that are on television.

Re: WTF ?!? # TV NETWORKS SAY You're BREAKING The LAW When You SKIP COMMERCIALS #
This illustrates several things:

There IS no legitimate law. Laws today are a farce, not just biased and hypocritical; but a direct reflection of the current government of the United States...

Corporate dictatorship.

News Networks need advertising; Newscorp, TW are LOSING it, so they must create legislation. They are DIRECTLY involved in political corrupti. i mean bribes.. i mean contributions.
The folks that did 9/11 are behind the mainstream media, i.e "the corporate zionist, multi billionaire, anti american, elitist establishment". Their agenda? Usurp sovereignty, capture government policy, institute a 'top to bottom' dictatorship, Hide behind false institutions of legitimacy and faith like 'Israel', while engaging in corporate privateering and international resource capture through extortion and war. It is all plain to see, it is reflected in ALL institutions of control.

No laws are "real" today, because we exist under a non representative government. The 2 party system has been dilluted and corrupted to the point there is no longer 'opposition'; but a 'cooperative'... to push the elitist agenda. It has resulted in 'false premise' institutions like DHS and economic policies like Keynsianism.

Top to bottom dictatorship over the people, who are NOT represented. Laws enforced against only the poor and unconnected. Colin Powel and Cheney write their books and get standing ovations. Bush costs the taxpayers multi millions every year... Now, steweaters, preach to me about the law, and how it is relevant to me.

It's bullshit.

The phantom legal authority, 'color of law' illegitimate mandates they squirm out everyday in washington now mean SHIT...

Ridiculous. They can't control whether people watch their stupid commercials or not. It's not the people's problem that commercial advertisers can't keep up with current technologies. If they can't change with the times and can't come up with new, innovative ways to market their CRAP then they don't deserve to be in business in the first place.

The broadcast networks are absolutely correct in this. They're not arguing that the viewer *must* view commercials, but that the satellite and cable companies must make a good faith attempt at providing those commercials to the viewers.

To that end, I agree with them. The cable and satellite providers can't provide their end users a means of automatically skipping commercials. By doing so, they would be making a financial profit from the broadcast networks' intellectual property, but denying the same broadcast networks of their revenue stream.

The networks suck, but even they have a right to profit from their own work.

TV Networks Say You're Breaking The Law When You Skip Commercials
Mitch Stoltz
Saturday, May 26, 2012


Television networks are having a busy month trying to stamp out new TV-watching technology, including telling a court that skipping a commercial while watching a recorded show is illegal. Yesterday, Fox, NBC, and CBS all sued Dish Network over its digital video recorder with automatic commercial-skipping. The same networks, plus ABC, Univision, and PBS, are gearing up for a May 30 hearing in their cases against Aereo, a New York startup bringing local broadcast TV to the Internet.

EFF and Public Knowledge filed an amicus brief supporting Aereo this week.

The suits against Dish are a response to the "Hopper" DVR and its "Auto Hop" feature, which automatically skips over commercials. According to the networks' complaints, the Hopper automatically records eight days' worth of prime time programming on the four major networks that subscribers can play back on request. Beginning a few hours after the broadcast, viewers can choose to watch a program sans ads.

If you go to the CBS website and choose a program to watch online, lets say you missed the last episode of How I Met Your Mother. You can watch it on the site commercial FREE.

There has to be more to this than just about watching commercials.
 Quoting: One Of My Names


Yes, but its THEIR show. They own the rights to it. If they want to put it on their website free for people to watch, without commercials, they can.

That does not give a cable/satellite provider the right to air the same show, with or without commercials or to provide their subscribers with a means of automatically skipping commercials.

That's one of the big reasons I stopped subscribing to TV over a decade ago - I can't stand commercials!

Now I only rent movies if I want to sit in front of the old boob tube.

True. And they bombard you with commercials everywhere - billboards, internet, radio, magazines, newspapers, papers stuck on your windshield, on the back of your reciepts - just every fucking place.

There's no basis for declaring it illegal. Its like saying that because you have a membership at Costco that everything in the store should be free. It doesn't work that way.

The networks produce the shows, the satellite and cable providers distribute them. Both expect and have a right to be paid for their services. Its a shitty system they've devised, with ads generating revenue to partially pay the networks, but the alternative to ads would be for the networks to demand more money from cable/satellite for distribution right and for the cable/satellite providers to demand MUCH higher subscription rates to offset it.
