Excessive Commercials on channels such as Filmrise and Tubi

I was a big fan of Tubi and Filmrise until recently. These channels have now increased the number and frequency of commercials to the point that I can no longer enjoy them. Commercials are a necessity I understand this, but why insert them at inappropriate moments in the show, and why now so many? At this point I can now only use Roku for PBS and Netflix, the free channels are just not worth it anymore.

Many of the free ad-supported channels are that way.  Sorry to hear two more have joined the fold.
