Commercials cutting into programming

Message 1 of 15

This is probably the 7th time this week that I've seen Verizon commercials interrupt normal programming on NFL network.  They're always in pairs with the first one being a local commercial (with particularly bad production values) and the second being a FIOS commercial.  The last one just happened at 9:47 PM EDT in the middle of the Thursday Night Football game.  It's incredibly annoying.

 

I don't normally watch NFL network but this seems to happen very consistently.  It's going to be a big problem if this happens when teams I care about are playing.

 

Is this normal or is something wrong?  Is anyone else seeing this?

...and it happened again.  10:38pm.  Missed the play but saw a nice Volkswagen.  I also know which politician is raising property taxes.  Don't know if Manning completed the pass.

What is Verizon going to do about this?  It is very annoying to have a live sports broadcast interrupted by political (or any) commericials.  I'm sure the NFL network will have something to say to Verizon.

Sort it out Verizon!  That is not acceptable in the least.  Happening every week on Thursday Night football.

Got off the phone with Verizon after being disconnected (on hold for 20 minutes). They blamed the NFL Network for the commercials. Try to say they have nothing to do with the commercials. No one wants to take responsibilty for this lousy situation.

I guess this has been going on for a while now. And Verizon does not seem to know about it or simply doesn't care. It's the most annoying thing. Does anybody have a direct number we can call to express our disatisfaction on the subject? Because obviously nobody from Verizon FiOS  is reading these posts.
