I decided to download an episode of parks & recreation on vod. When I played it back there was a notice that fast forward was disabled. Sure enough I couldnt ff/skip through the commercials. This is the first time I encountered this problem. NOPE don't like it.

Yeah NBC on Demand disables skipping. Not sure if any of the others channels do.

I think ABC requires that it be disabled too.
