Re: Verizon Cutting Live NFL Channel For Commercials!!!

I think this is automated and the fact that the automated process remained during a live event is probably the fault of NFLN. It most likely happened across providers.

If I'm wrong, someone will jump in and explain the process.

Commercials are inserted via an inaudible tone (to the human ears), couldn't tell you whose fault it is though -- could be NFLN for putting in the tone in the wrong place or it could be Vz's equipment detecting the tone when there is no tone.

I'm pretty sure these are all locally installed (all of the commercials I'm seeing are either local political/car dealer ads or direct response spots). Nobody I talk to with Comcast or TimeWarner has this issue, so it has to be a FIOS thing.

Also, unless I'm wrong, most of these posts are from people in NJ or PA.
