Oddly placed commercials during Roku Channel Streaming Live TV
I can't find the exact place this should be added, but in my opinion, the live streaming tv has the oddest placed commercials I have ever seen. There's obvious "hesitations" where commercials should be, but Roku puts them in the middle of a conversation instead.
The networks kind of place commercials strategically so that both the content (show) and the commercials all run within the allotted time space ( ie. an hour). Perhaps the show is 42 minutes long, so 18 minutes are allocated for commercials.
Streaming on-demand AVOD (ad-supported video on demand) doesn't work in the same manner. That same 42 minute show may be accompanied by 2 ads, or 4 ads. (maybe 2 minutes total time). Can't really expect every conceivable, available show to be gone through to have a 15 second, or even 60 second ad placed in the same spot that the network chose. Best to just get through the ads as soon as possible and on to the show.
I understand your point, but I think most people get used to the sometimes odd placement. Your point is taken, though.
