ABC Broadcasting Complaint - On Demand Advertising
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- I hate that when I watch an on demand television program that I can't fast forward. Think about it, if I had interest in the advertisement, I'd watch it, but no, I am forced to watch 45 Muppet Movie commercials. I wouldn't go see that movie if my attendance cured cancer. I've begun to just not watch shows that can't be fast forwarded. ABC/Disney are the absolute worst in that regard. Nearly every on demand show prevents fast forward. Madison Avenue must be severely retarded to recommend this tact to ABC. Personally, I put advertisers that implement this kind of mean-spirited advertising on my "do not support list", i.e. The Muppet Movie. I won't watch the movie in the theater, on cable, DVD, computer, and not I won't let my kids or grandkids ever watch it. I hope ABC/Disney pulls their marketing head out of a specific sphincter muscle.
