    You are correct some of the shows on ABC are 1080p, I just wanted to make sure I was not alone in not getting all VOD in 1080p. Thank you for the reply!

    The only issue I had recently with D*'s VOD was when I was binge watching Miracle Workers from TBS on Demand. Episode 4 wouldn't load at all on D* and I had to watch it via their website because the TBS TV Everywhere app had no audio for that same exact episode on all devices. :eek: I was like WTF? I was curious to see if other providers had an issue so I started a seven day free trial of fuboTV which had the episode on demand. I was shocked that on fuboTV it worked (although for some reason fuboTV had interlacing artifacts on everything I tried to watch.)

    Commercial wise the same 5 commercials were on constant repeat for every episode (1-3, 5-7) but it didn't extend the episode out. Each episode was 30 minutes with D* inserting ads.

    Only way to get commercial free content is to pay for it as far as I know. We do use the CBS commercial free app but only activate it once in a while and just binge what we want to see. You do have to pay for the month but we can usually see everything we want to in that month.
