This is a 30-minute program I recorded. I removed the commercials. You'll note that its runtime is no more than 19 minutes. On all the other channels a 30-minute program is 22 minutes with commercials removed. These truly do have the most commercials/infomercials squeezed into them as possible.
Want to know something else that's sad? These channels are available for free on satellite. Yet Verizon pays to carry them. And they're on Verizon's most expensive tier.
There's a reason why everyone despises the .TV channels. Verizon chooses to carry this garbage instead of BBC America HD, Cartoon Network HD, or H2 HD. There are so many better alternatives that could take the place of these channels it's ridiculous.
