Re: I Still Want To Know That's why they need to do dynamic commercial insertion based on your viewing habits and the profile they develop of you. Next they'll want you to identify yourself before you watch a TV show so they can target you correctly...

Re: I Still Want To Know So eventually, will they:
A. Force me to stop watching TV since I don't buy their crap?
B. Discontinue my service for being a "bad" consumer?
Seriously... I pay a premium to not see ads I pay in 2 ways. I pay for amazon prime and other services that don't have ads. the other way I pay is by waiting until shows I want to see are available on those services?

Even if Hulu asks me if the ad I am watching is relevant to me, I click "No" every time.

said by Joe12345678:Maybe. But I will still be able to fast forward thru shows.
and they will jack up the outlet fee.
Re: Stop fast forwarding on DVRd shows; hello TIVO Bittorrent is all the ala carte anyone would ever need.
I'm not opposed to paying, but I'm not paying and watching ads on top of it, if thats the case I refuse to pay.
Re: If they want to see what's really getting watch.
said by buzz_4_20:That has been true from the 1950s onward. TV has always been a way to deliver advertising and nothing else.
That's the sad truth, TV Shows are nothing more than a device to deliver advertising.

Another made-up figure
said by "Comcast" :Yet another made-up figure. Billions of dollars? I wish I could make up a figure like that and get away with it.
The money being lost by people fast-forwarding commercials is in the billions

Personally I usually do not fast forward through ads I don't really mind most commercials. I usually don't fast forward through ads, but I do if the commercials fall into one or more of the following categories:
1) LOUD - I don't want to wakeup the whole house (most of the music based commercials, like for Apple products,and now many other tablets/phones, usually fall into this category)
3) Repetitive (heavy rotation of a particular commercial)
If there weren't so many obnoxious , annoying or loud commercials out there, I wouldn't use my fast forward hardly at all. I may sit through 4 , 5, 6 commercials in a row, but if an annoying one pops up, that is it, I skip pass the rest.
