You have to figure there will be a fee involved here... that Apple would pay to the channel... and you have to figure that fee gets passed to the consumer/subscriber... so we may get the answer to the question "How much would you pay to skip commercials"... because that's the elephant in the room. IF people are willing to pay more to skip commercials, then the channels might like that scenario as it would be more guaranteed revenue direct from the viewers.
