(DON’T) Gimme a Break; No More Skipping Commercials
NEW YORK (AP) — Some of us who love watching TV but hate watching commercials have gotten pretty good at using the remote to skip past ads during a show's playback. Now, a popular digital video recorder company is making that skill obsolete. TiVo has a new DVR that let you skip an entire commercial break with a single click. The TiVo Bolt tags the start and end of an ad block so viewers can skip them while watching recordings. The feature will work with about 20 over-the-air and cable channels, including the major broadcast networks, mostly during prime-time hours.
