And I fear programs will get ever more severely edited as time continues. And as the material actually plays, more of the screen will get obscured by things like network logos, "banners" for upcoming presentations, and probably in the near future, icons for products "sponsoring" the show. And the broadcasters (cable-casters?) will justify their actions by reasoning, "Well, if they want their shows uncut, uninterrupted and unobscured, they can buy the DVDs, Blu-Ray, what have you."
But, I swear...if that purchased
media starts pulling the same crap (and likely, no reasonable way to override it), well, I'm not sure what
I'll do, but it won't
