I'm not quite sure where to put this but from here:

ABC will provide programming to satellite, telco and land-line operators who agree to disable the “fast-forwarding” capability.

Looks like this deals with VOD though, not normal broadcast.
Who is this "Vod Kanockers" that you speak of?

No fast forward, no me watch. Just that simple. :)

With fast forward, possibility I will watch commercial.

No fast forward, no possibility I will ever even see anything remotely considered a commercial for that program.

See ya

For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!
