    This is from late September, but I just learned about it. This is a great way to get to me toss my TiVo in the trash and move to streaming 100%. I'm hoping this doesn't hit lifetime sub boxes. :(

    Seems odd that they would introduce the commercial skip option for use during playback, then turn around and add more commercials.

    I'm "wait and see" for now, but am glad for the moment that I did not upgrade my unit as I almost did this summer, if I decide to jump ship.
