Time shifting is not that important to me. Skipping one or more commercials is more important to me.

So I must not be part of the group of "most people". :)


But you wouldn't be able to skip commercials if you were watching live TV. It's the time shifting that enables the commercial skipping! :)

As I recall, there were VHS VCRs that had "commercial skip". The VCR would automatically fast forward through commercials.
