FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Comcast’s New On-Demand Choices Are Worthless

Comcast recently announced several new additions to their on-demand choices.   Bones, Gray’s Anatomy, Private Practice and others were added to on-demand.  Sounds great doesn’t it?

Wrong, there appears to be roughly twice as many commercials on-demand as there are on broadcast.   On-demand has sunk to new and even lower standards.  

Comcast, you are guaranteed to put new life into TIVO sales.   DVR use will double except my guess is that using Comcast’s DVR will mean more commercials.  

Oh, and I saved the best for last.  Comcast disabled the fast forward function so you can’t even fast forward through the commercials.   Nice move Comcast!  Disabling fast forward really endeared me to your service.
Comcast are your intentions to aggressively drive your users to FIOS or Direct TV?

I watched Bones tonight on-demand and that will be the last time I use on-demand to watch Bones.   Following Bones, I went  back to my trusty TIVO to watch Gray’s and Private Practice.

Good luck with your new on-demand choices as far as I am concerned they stink! 

Comcast what in the world were you thinking?
