Another crappy channel stealing bandwidth from the packages we pay for just to cram advertising down our throats... (Ashley or no Ashley.) ;)

Not only is it for one day but it is only for 2 hours. Would you really call this a channel addition? I wouldn't.

I like the clip that says "Experienced PVR users skip 71% of the commercials..."

I don't know about anyone else, but I would estimate I skip in the high 90s

I don't understand if they really wanted to put something like this, for two hours a week, why they don't use channel 101...I guess it is very important to have that "remote learning" thing running every hour all day....

I heard a statistic a while back where only 20 % or some low number as such would skip the commercials that had a DVR/PVR.

I skip all commercials except promos for new shows I am interested in and movies at the show. Unless I am watching live news shows, I skip just about everything- commercial wise.

Sometimes I forget to skip the commercials. My wife always has to kick me to remind me. :D

It sounds like and old idea coming back again. This is similar to the way products were integrated into radio and TV shows back in the early days.

I like this as well:

Most importantly, BingoTV will launch in Dish Network's basic tier meaning the channel will be available to Dish’s entire subscriber base. This is in sharp contrast to most new channel launches which occur only on high end programming packages.

It will only air for 2 hours a week. So its not a big deal.

More Channels

It's just another E* Garbage Channel (GC). Add a few more GCs and the basic packages will be getting another channel count "Name Upgrade" with the corresponding rate increase.

Sometimes I forget to skip commercials too particularly if I am on the internet in the middle of something. I usually watch tv and am on the internet at the same time and find that a lot if not most of the people watch tv and browse the internet at the same time. It keeps you occupied pretty well.
