    Skip showed up on my recording about 20 minutes after the game ended. I wonder if this is a regional thing and has to do with the way the game was broadcast on local Fox affiliates.

    Sounds logical. My cable company inserted one of their local ads, but I doubt they paid for it.

    If it was a local ad, they’d buy it from the local FOX affiliate. It was probably still expensive but not really comparable to the prices of the national ads. That shouldn’t affect skip mode though. That’s the model for every network show. Some ads are national, some are local.

    These "ads" clobber the existing network feed. Sometime they are aligned, but mostly they end short. I know they're local because the last ad is always something my cable feed sells, like TiVo. They only appear on basic cable. It's very unusual to see one on a network channel. In effect, it overlaid the Fox ads for the whole block. I must have heard "Post Office Again" a thousand times. :)

    Here's a poor graphic of what happens. Top is normal. Bottom is my feed.

    It's not to scale. But I usually get the last 3 seconds of the regular feed. Plus when watching The Weather Channel or CNBC, the crawl gets clobbered too.

    How do you skip the advertisements?

    Not working for me either! Nice to advertise something and then not deliver it.

    Still nothing here. Just like last year's Superbowl skip which was similarly touted, yet never delivered. Anyway, I've been busy so forgive me taking this long to get to the recording. :)
