    I wonder if the newly announced hbo-with-commercials will still have shows uncut/uncensored..
    (not like I'm going to be a viewer of that, I pay for no-commercials versions of streaming AND have cable... But I have long thought there should have been something like HBO-with-commercials on cable as long as they still didn't edit things.. and one could tivo to avoid commercials.. since as the studies have shown, some huge # of people *don't* skip commercials)

    The HBO shows still won’t have commercials in them. They may have them before and after. That tier also misses out on the theatrical releases.

    oh you mean it it will be a commercial supported version of JUST HBO's original shows? and the commercials won't even be interrupting the show?

    still not something I'm interested in, but not too long ago, I probably would have been.

    It’ll have all the HBO Max shows except the theatricals. Everything will have commercials except the HBO Originals. (Not to be confused with the HBO Max Originals)

    Have they announced that? I can live with that. It's what Hulu does for their movies on the ad supported tier. It doesn't bother me that much. I already have the current tier so I'm worried about it.

    I like it. It’s only once a week so I haven’t bothered to pay anything for Peacock. They did play a couple episodes on NBC in place of Lilly Singh on a few Fridays since Lilly only does 4 times a week.

    I think most commercials are too good to skip but I generally don't watch a commercial more than once unless I'm streaming in which case that's not an option. Oh, wait, it is. No one has been able to explain to me why my video nearly always freezes during or right after commercial breaks. I click on the URL and press enter and get the show back and sometimes I'm starting several minutes before the break. They don't make me watch the commercials again so that might actually be a way to cheat.

    yeah I saw that in my to do list.. weird, because the first season seemed like a total 'dump the episodes' thing.

    "If we don't get a season 4, we've ended on the single most frustrating, upsetting and maddening place that any season could possibly end," Gaiman explained.

    I tried to watch season 3 of American Gods and then I remembered that I hated every second of season 2. I love the lead actor but two seasons is enough for me. Knowing that it's cancelled and that it ended unresolved lets me know I made the right choice by no longer watching.

    I watched S1 of American Gods and never had any interest in continuing with S2 or S3.
