Must have moved Fox news channel to spot beams during Election day as there were local political AD inserts during the evening for Ohio Senate candidate Josh Mandel. There was an abrupt break in the video at each insert.

Funny thing was most of the commercials were after the polls in Ohio had closed. Mr Mandel was treasurer running for Senator and as such a bean counter. I guess he got better Ad rates from DirecTv after the polls closed! :D

They didn't move it to a spotbeam. For DVRs DirecTV now has the ability to insert local ads in select markets.
