Thanks for bringing this to our attention @jstewart2468.

 

We understand your concern about in progress commercial interruptions. These ad breaks usually mean that there's no regional commercial available to be cast.

 

These commercial availability doesn't depend on TV providers but on the broadcaster exclusively. We take every opinion into consideration, and we continue to improve our service every day.

 

Let us know if you have more questions, we'll be attentive.

In other words there are no local commercials for your area that is why you get the commercial brake in progress. Some people will have a commercial there while others will not because it just depends on the area you live in!  And if it bothers you so badly you could always pause your tv and then fast forward or you could record your show and fast forward through the commercials!
