Aaaggghh!!! Just found out that there will be a surprise Xmas present called DirecTV. Unfortunately, though, I also heard that he (my grandfather) is getting it because he thinks you won't get commercials, and he's hopping on the bandwagon, so to speak. Damnit *I* wanted to get it a year ago but did he listen? Nope. It wasn't until three or four neighbors got DirecTV this year that he's decided to finally do it. *sigh*. That's why I'm asking this stupid question. And yes, I did do a search and couldn't find anything on this issue. While I'm not sure (since I've never had DirecTV), I do believe you *will* get commercials with DirecTV (as you do with everything that's broadcast via television). Is that correct?
