RapeVictim

Another question...

Granted, OTA broadcasts are "free" to people with receivers and antennas. Paid for by advertising dollars. Why are there ANY commercials on a pay service such as Dish, DirecTV, cable, etc.? It's as irritating as sitting in a movie theater with a paid ticket for the movie and having to watch 10 minutes of advertising before the previews even start.

But then you can get stuck with crappy seats...

I just continue playing with my smart phone until the movie starts.

The theatre by my place has assigned seating for all movies. Buy your seat early then show up 10 mins late.
