Of course not. Why would they? That doesn't make one bit of sense.
Why not? You can elect not to see the ad banner on Dish.
I forgot how sensible you are !:hurah:
An "on off" switch would make sence.
The few that want the adds or don't care, well the tiny amount of you have what you want.
Now give the other 80% an ad free option.
Wouldn't that negate the purpose of the ads?
I don't let it bother me especially on the HR24 but on the HR22 that's a different story. That's why I use the blue button for the mini guide.
We should not have to be inturded upon in the Guide with an AD.
One of the reasons we got DVRs was to be able to FF thru ads in the programming.
Now they are thrust right in the way and we can't get rid of them.
It is just not right to do this to us.
Yeah pressing 1 button to skip over the ads is so brutal to do. It's bad enough we actually have to push any button to do anything. These receivers should read our minds. Then there's the whole idea of advertising...I can't understand why DirecTV would advertise anything. Companies who advertise are stupid, especially ones that allow another company to pay them for ad space.
I'm worried that the more we remove ads from TV the more expensive it's going to get. It's one of the reasons I'm not a fan of dish's Auto-Hop. If we eliminate the ads/commercials all together, sooner or later, it will impact my wallet.
With broadcasters increasingly wanting to recoup their lost commercial revenues by negotiating higher carriage fees from the service providers that spiral to increasing our bills seems to be in full swing.
There has to be balance between ads/commercials and our bills.
Exactly what I was thinking. Hit channel down once and *poof* a whole page of ads is gone. Such a hardship.
Just look at what they did to the website, I'm starting to think directv is a ad supporter, I don't mind if they advertise their audience channel but opt us out of PPV ads, We all know what Dish is their position on this.
Not only higher fees but more and more shows are building commercials into the show itself and/or we're getting more and more "bugs" on screen during shows.
And thats any different now? We have ads and its still not enough? Maybe its time to clean house at Directv.
There is other areas that ads can stay mainly the message banner or devote a channel mainly for ads besides PPV preview channels, Or even make a App for ads and keep them there.
Agree, Put it in our Mailbox.
All those ads do is prevent me from wanting anything they show.
Same as the telemarketers.
Ah for the good old days of C band IRDs with base band video out , no bugs or logos . :hurah:
Well I can't complain too much since comcrap is the same way or worst on their DVR's
I don't get way that makes it ok?
Comcast also charges $20 a box, too. So if Directv Charged $19 that would be ok cause comcast charges $20? :hurah:
