On demand commercials overlapping content

Why are the inserted commercials allowed to overlap actual show content? On any given episode sometimes 5 to 7 minutes seems to be edited out and replaced with commercials.

Hi There @Gram2019

Thank you so much for the question about the commercials.  Now OnDemand is a mirror of the original broadcast content, brought to you by the network broadcaster, but provided by us.


The commercials that on there, are the same commercials that come from the original broadcast. So we do not have control of the content that is from the network. If you have a suggestion about content and would bring that up, you will need to contact the network directly. 


If there is anything else that you need, please reach out to us again.

On Demand comes from the channels server using the internet so there is something wrong at the server so contact the channel.
