Hulu Plus didn't reduce the ads. I gave up watching Shield every break had those long freaking worse annoying prescription drug ads which are long. I am going to watch the Dish recording.

I have Hulu Plus free until August 2015 then I will cancel a week before if I do it now I lose out on all those crappy free months. Now I am going to use my bing points towards discounts on Amazon it is more worth it.

Earthlink Extreme powered by Time Warner Cable Brooklyn.
ASUS RT-N66W Router 374.43 (Merlin Build) using OpenDNS.
Toshiba 39L2300U - Amazon Fire TV, Sony PS4 Wired. Apple TV Wireless.

I missed this, could you provide a reference? Searching for NFL kerfuffle took me down a whole bunch of different roads, but I did not find anything about the number of ads needed to fund a show.

My Yamaha does that but you have to learn it on automatically. Actually the BD Player is supposed to do that too but apparently not for streaming.

Sorry but it was on the radio in an interview so there are no links. I'm also not a sports fan so it might been about another sports group starting streaming.
