before bitching out Dorna, call your cable company and bitch them out.

i confuse.

i think that's the the point of the rant from the OP.

I agree 100% that if i pay for an online service seperate from a broadcast, that i shouldn't be paying to see commercials. Thats double dipping on the companies side and it's a greaseball move.

wasn't a motogp season subscription something like $100?

thats crazy cash for a handful of races.

unless he lets us know what video to check, it didnt happen.

Is there a cable service you can pay for to get all the races, from qual to race day?

I thought it was just online
i am looking at in the logic perspective, carry it over to the cable companies too.

I've seen commercials only on the free videos. I have not seen any on any of the subscription videos yet.

Yeah... the cable companies are not who makes money from commercials. The actual station itself airs the commercials. The cable company just broadcasts THAT signal to your house, which is what you pay for. it's still INCREDIBLY overpriced, though- which is why I don't pay for TV service.

If it was not for commercials, then TV shows would not get made. That's where the budget for the programs comes from.

There are no commercials in the UK on most stations... but that's because the government pays to make the TV shows.

but yeah- if you are paying for the motogp online content and there are commercials in it, I'd call up and complain- or do a chargeback on my card. That's fucking bullshit.

On a related note..that's my bitch with Hulu plus. I recently added that service onto my PS3. We used it to watch some TV series / shows when we wanted and watch more than one episode at a time. It's a PAID service. And you STILL have to deal with 30 second commercials at times...annoying.
