I am tired of when I hit the guide button and I have to wait 10 to 15 seconds for a stupid ad to appear. It is bad enough the remotes don't work have the time to start with, that when you are waiting forthe ads to appear if you are ot carful, you can order a show you had no intention of ordering. Also the ads in the guid view have now reached the absored level. I saw this with DirectTV where they stick ads for PPV in the middle of the guide. Npow I see Verizion is doing the same thing. If I want to order a PPV I know where and how to get it. WHen I pull up the guid list, that is what I want, a WORKING guide and not ads. I think we pay more than enough for the services there is no need to force ads on us. If you want to give us the TV service for free, then fill the guide with all the ads you want.
