Hulu+ has commercials you can't skip....why is that different to you?
Cause it's only $8 a month. If I'm paying close to $90 a month for Tv, I'm NOT paying to be able to skip commercials.
My guess is we're all paying about $6-$8 a month for our local broadcast channels which gives us the national broadcast network programming to record. While I too want to continue to skip commercials, it seems to me paying to stream with commercials that can't be skipped is going backwards just as much as being charged to skip commercials.
I'm always puzzling over the fact that the likes of News Corp/Fox, Disney/ABC, and NBCU haven't decided to bundle their cable and broadcast channels and sell them as a commercial-free or limited commercial package in a price range something akin to HBO.
CBS could create a commercial-free or limited-commercial bundle with its common-ownership Viacom's channels or with its The CW partner Time Warner's cable channels. In fact, I could see all three as a bundle that would offer the follow channels or groups of channels: CBS, The CW, MTV, Nickelodeon, CMT, TV Land, VH1, BET, Palladia, Comedy Central, Logo, Spike, Adult Swim, Boomerang, Cartoon Network, truTV, TBS, TNT, TCM, CNN.
