Guide showing 30 minute shows as only 15 minutes forcing you to watch on demand versions

Has anyone else noticed that many guide listings are displayed with incorrect times many shows are only 15 minutes long?  Have at least 5 or more minutes of a previous show included thats unrelated to the show your trying to record.  Is this verizons way of getting people to stop viewing live shows and use their on demand versions of the same shows that DONOT let you fast forward.  Buzz on the internet is verizon is trying to ween us off the commercial skip feature used during live recordings.  Since live versions of shows are missing content the logical conclusion would be that we would seek these shows out on "on demand".  I for one will never watch commercials ever again.

 

I have noticed this problem(s) on Tru network specifically with "caught red handed" but most cable channels have the same issues with shows starting and ending at the wrong times.  Typically 1-3 minutes off.

What guide are you talking about?  Not the DVR/STB?

 

As far as the programs starting 1 -3 minutes early or later,  thats nothing new and is mostly the program providers doing.
