Everytime I go to watch something, it's a commercial, or if there doesn't happen to be one on at that moment, 10 seconds later there is a commercial. And these seem to last forever! I swear it's atleast 3-5 minutes of commercials everytime there is one!! Before I got D* a year ago, I hadn't subscribed to pay TV (religiously) in years, and now that I'm back, I'm stunned at the amount and length of commercials! It's unbelievable! Even on crappy letterboxed channels there are a ton! I mean I know everything is in HD now...but come on, even fast-forwarding through them is painful! It seems to last for 2 minutes or more...and thats FAST-FORWARD! So what gives? If this is how pay tv has become I'm gonna ditch it all together, theres nothing to watch except commercials.
