Commercials and their irritability

Is it me, but isn’t the repetitive nature of them not the most irritating thing?  I was hoping to avoid the major frequency and irritation of commercials found in cable television by going to total streaming. The repetition of a given commercial or commercials during a program, with streaming channels, is horrific.  Sometimes the same especially crummy commercial is run three times in a row or during a commercial break.  To add insult to injury you are usually not allowed to bypass the commercial or fast forward it.

All of this really pisses me off!

Re: Commercials and their irritability

I agree. There are too many commercials run during a certain period.  For instance 4 sets of commercials during a 45 minute show. No one likes commercials, that's why many people record the shows, and zip ass the commercials. Most people would accept them if they would run a set after 15 minutes then another set after 30 minutes.

Re: Commercials and their irritability

Depends on the installed Channel/app.  Some certainly do have more ads than others, but unlike cable/satellite, normally only 30secs or so per ad.  Kind of what the Mute button was invented for.
