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?
