    I've been watching alot of FOX News the past week. I've noticed the anchor going to break and teasing the upcoming story before being abruptly cut off by the commercial a few seconds early. This occurs on all my tv's with two different receivers. This has to be an issue with them sending their satellite cue's too early, right? The only time this should happen is if they are at a "hard" break and must be in commercial by a certain time but the anchor runs out of time, but this happens almost every break!

    Broken...
    If they are soft breaks, then the problem is on FNC's end. Perhaps there's a glitch in their Master Control switcher software, or they're training a new MC Op. It would only be a problem with satellite cues if it occurred at hard breaks only ( usually at the top and bottom of the hour, though they may have a different "clock".

    If they are DirecTV drop ins, the problem exists between FNC and DirecTV. If they are regular commercials, then Fox News is having the problem themselves. Almost every commercial sounds like it is an internal Fox News problem.
