GIVE ME A BREAK
I watch YES and pay for the channel. They play this ad between every inning and many times the same ad twice in a row.
Give me a break. This is not broadcast TV. We pay for this and it's expensive!
It might not be Verizon, but yes playing the commercial.
Regardless, premium movie channels are about the only ones that don't have commercials.
Even pbs has a spot before or after a showing talking about the sponsors of a show.
