No they aren't. Receivers have no hard drive, and don't have nearly enough RAM to store commercials. Theoretically they could stream them over the internet, assuming the receivers are even internet connected, but they'd look pretty bad for people who have crappy internet links or are experiencing a bit of slowdown, so I highly doubt they'd want to do that.
Obviously they can insert commercials before they send them to their satellite to be broadcasted, but you're talking about taking a single RSN channel and having receivers show it as two different channels (the RSN channel, and a GamePlan channel) with different commercials. Not possible with receivers.
Ah. You meant non-dvr receivers. Got you.
Who cares? Just show the rsn.
