My First PPV Experience

Okay, so I bought my first ever Pay Per View program: Ga. vs. Ga. Tech, which we can't watch on our ABC station due to dumb ol' Stanford. Okay, fine, so I pony up the $20 and open a bottle of wine, figuring, I've paid my money, let's make it a "date night." Keith is glee-filled, watching me giggle about the Dawgs and the silly affection I have for college football... only sometimes.


Five minutes in, we're pleased with our purchase. This is going to be a good game.

And then...

What's this?

COMMERCIALS????? I'm sorry... did I not understand how PPV works?

I PAID for my VIEWING. Why should I have to be subjected to COMMERCIALS when I've already spent money for the show?

Damn Capitalism.

I hate to interfere with anyones righteous indignation. What you're actually paying for is the ability to see the EXACT SAME program that is available to the folks back in Georgia. Not a special, commercial-free feed. Sorry.
