No, there is not going to be a TV app that does this. There are already apps that do this if you record to Windows Media Center, however, since a PC can process programming and rid you of commercials.

Geez guys, that's what DVRs are for! Been using them for umpteen years. Record and watch whatever you want, whenever you want and skip over the commercials...simple!

While I use my DVR quite a bit, it is not always convenient to record certain programming. There are times we want to watch something in real time. Having said that, since commercials pay the bills, no commercial deleting app is likely.

I record a lot of stuff, but I like to watch sports in "real time." Makes me mad that they black out the Indy 500 here in Indianapolis and show it later that evening. That's why I go to my wife's sister's house in southern Indiana and watch it on a Louisville station.

So what's the problem to put PC equivalent processing power into TV and do the same? If this is not possible now it will be in the next couple of years. The problem is this would change the logic of TV business. This is business is anyway in decline, eliminating ads would speed this up. What would be then remaining is youtube or other tubes videos made by amateurs.

Commercials are revenue. They will not go away, nor will they be blocked.
if one wants to push the envelope, stop adverts and previews on DVD's that can't be skipped.
