TAMPA TBS - Playing random local commercials during....

MLB post season games, what [edit] gives? In the middle of an inning during play they are breaking away and running 2 commercials and we are missing action. WHAT GIVES?? Who do we hang about this?

It was doing it last night, and i let it go. But, now that the yankees are on... [edit]? It's NOT TBS. doesn't happen to my father on brighthouse, but my house with fios it does!

Anything is possible... but Verizon does not have control over the content aired on ANY channel...

that would be an issue with TBS's feed, plain and simple.

I have to disagree on this. I watched all of the games all day yesteday, sick in my recliner, and I don't remember a single one of those ads happening here in Texas. I am guessing that the local VHO down there is inserting the ads and they are doing it based on some signal contained in the TBS feed, and either the signal is in the wrong place or Verizon is keying on the wrong signal.

Were the local ads or national ones? I am guessing local.

If it is still happening all I can think of to do is call the FSC and report it.

Of course I have been wrong before Smiley Happy

I have to agree with justin on this one, one time a friend of mine was having a similar issue in a different area and it was verizon adding the comercials not TBS.

Sarasota TBS(channel 52) is also cutting in with commercials during play in the middle of an inning.  It happened on Wednesday's first game and today's first game between the Phillies and Rockies.  Some of the commericals are for verizon fios.  Go figure.

You guys should totally call Verizon and complain about the commercials....

Yep....it's the only way to get it fixed I think. And again, at least for me, I am not seeing it today either in Texas.

have them send the ticket, and refer them to the forums for proof of multiple customers complainign about the same thinng, if need be
