NO you are not paying a premium for the on-demand feature.
And the ads there are inserted there by each individual channel provider. Some just runs ads about their other programs, and others conventional ads.
Content providers are the ones that disable FF. They insert commercials and want you to watch them.
Verizon has no control over that.
Just so you know, you're talking to peers here. If you want answers from Verizon, you need to call or chat with them.
As other folks have told you, Video on Demand features are controlled by the content owner, not Verizon Some VoD content allows FF and skip, and some doesn't. In genreal, free VoD content will have more restrictions than VoD content from premium channels.
Any programs you record using DVR will not be subject to restrictions. If you have DVR, you should use it to record shows you like and then you can FF or skip commercials as you want. Of course, this only works for shows that are currently broadcast. If they are only available on VoD, you can't DVR them.
