Not sure if this belongs here or in Video/Audio Sources? It's connected to source and programming? The slippery slope. Added to Engadget and Digg is a story reporting that Cox in a deal with Disney will disable commercial skipping on ABC and ESPN video-on-demand. Disney sticking the first toe in the water to see if consumers will sit - grouse - and buy anyway? - Or die before they give up their fast forward buttons. Honest to gosh...I promise, between CopyP, HDMI, HD format wars and little animated figures running across the screen during a critical moment in the movie I'm watching on my paid-for supposedly higher grade, viewing choices. This would be the straw. If this spreads to subscription services, I've had it with purchasing - anything - for video consumption, and will be revamping my life relearning - board games and long evenings outside in the garden when home. I hope this is a joke.
