Do you think it's "illegal" for any t.v. network to skip commercials? Don't you want to skip them?


Dish Network is under fire by CBS, NBC, and FOX for offering auto-hop (a HIGHLY valuable feature to most consumers) which skips commercials. Apparently they are taking Dish Network to court.

    I hear you! But, I also know that nothing is free. Right now, we have the luxury of skipping the commercials because advertisers are paying for the ability of those shows to air. Without advertisers dishing out money, then we'd have to pay to watch.

    Advertising attracts some of the most creative people around. Every now and then the agencies let them go wild. There's nothing wrong with enjoying their work.

    I also hate ads and believe that the consumer's voice counts. The networks probably believe that if Dish gets it's way then they will lose (more) viewers. The stale networks don't allow consumers a choice in avoiding ads and don't want to change.

    I know that DN is a delivery system & used their exact business name. Networks claim skipping ads is illegal & bullied one company into bankruptcy in the past. It's in the networks best interest to fight ad skipping though that's what custome
