stranger things 3 proves they will just add commercials into the episode plot for streaming services that don't have traditional commercials. [expletive] disgusting. i'm still baffled that i pay a premium price for mlb.tv and they have to inject commercials in between. they didn't for like the first 6-7 years i bought it but these last 2 years they decided they weren't making enough money. i thought that was the trade off, i pay a premium, then you just give me the games/content sans commercials. NOPE. gotta be sold [expletive] i don't need at every possible moment.

side rant i suppose.

what's hilarious about the commercials on MLB.tv are that they are *always* crystal clear while their product rarely ever works properly for an extended period of time.

I mean i get it, the commercials aren't live-streaming, but still, seems like adding insult to injury.

I actually don't mind the commercials during commercial breaks on MLB.tv or NHL GameCenter. When they go to just silence, it is kinda creepy. I do however mind when they only have one commercial that they play at every single break.

I've never understood that. Really no one else wanted to buy some ad time?

I think the reason for those breaks with 'no' commercials is because they just take the feed from whatever team broadcast you chose and there are always blocks of ads sold for local ads which will not get shown outside of the local broadcast area for the channel and you only see the national ads.
