[Cable TV] Mediacom cuts into Weather Channel with commercials

This has been going on for weeks, the anchors will be talking about something, or there will be a show on, then BOOM they get cut off and there is a commercial,unusually for MC22. Then you miss a good bit of what is being said.

Does this happen in HD or SD?

Legally, Mediacom is supposed to allow users to opt out, but the opt out button does not work. They have been claiming that it is a bug for several years but keep redirecting my internet searches in order to advertise to me. It has never stopped and I can't get away from their advertisements while on line or when they interrupt my tv programming and they don't care if they interrupt any tv show to do it.

Browser hijacking and deep packet sniffing is actually illegal, but Mediacom does it to it's customers anyway.

You think that's bad? Mediacom also interrupts your internet searches and changes the address you were trying to go to just to advertise to you!

Sorry forgot to respond. Its the SD channel, The Weather Channel does not have an HD version (AFAIK). Its channel 62.
