    In these days of 'Digibox's' where you can record TV programs and watch them later, the 'ad's' doesn't matter!

    We always record the TV program's first before watching them, so when the 'ad's' come, we stop the show and add extra 4 mins [or however long the 'ad's' are] from the where the the program was stopped and that way the ad's free channels are not necessary!.
