The screen-saver style ads are bad enough during a 'pause.' Yesterday, full 30 second ads started running WITH SOUND. What is DirecTVs problem? Pause is for PAUSING...not to run ads with audio that interrupt what I paused the TV for. This is getting utterly ridiculous. At least give us a setting to turn off this crap. I have been borderline keep/cancel for a few months now. This is the sort of unacceptable crap that will push me into the cancel side. There are just WAY too many other options at better prices now than DirecTV. I have high-speed internet without caps so I have many options. I think I will begin exploring them now. I was hoping that getting AT&T off their backs might help, but not so far.
