Getting commercial’d to death

Is it just me or is there 100 times more commercials and the same one repeating multiple times. Trying to watch Batwoman on CW and I’m starting to really get annoyed.

Re: Getting commercial’d to death

CW is one that provides little to no ad-break relief when viewing their content on demand thru next-day airing in comparison to live viewing. Batwoman premiere was 42 minutes in length with a total viewing time of 52 minutes rounding down the seconds. 15 minutes of ads broken into 5 ad breaks. Content from other providers seem to provide a much lower advertising load than this. I have found that other ad-supported offerings seem to offer an ad load that is on average half of what the CW offers. 8 minutes or less on an hour show and 4 minutes or less on a half hour show.
