Roku Channel / Beverly Hillbillies

I thoroughly enjoyed watching "The Beverly Hillbillies" back in the '60s, but I don't remember ever seeing reruns on TV in the decades since.  Odd, I thought.  Why not?

Well now they're on the Roku Channel and I finally get to enjoy them again (well, kind of enjoy them--they're not quite as good as I remember them from childhood).  And I figured out why they never showed them as reruns.  They embedded a commercial as part of each show, and a frequent supporter was Winston cigarettes.  But cigarette commercials were outlawed.  So if they showed the reruns, they'd be breaking the law by showing a cigarette commercial.
