Some programming now has what they call smart resume. You hit fast forward and it starts again after the commercials.

Until streaming gets more convenient (a relative term) with suitable DVR capability we choose to pay a little more for the convenience.

I believe streaming is still in it's early evolution and will operate similar to today's packaged providers at some point. And yes the price will go up along with the convenience.

IMHO.

We've been using Roku for about 6 years now, and are very happy with it. We can stream many different "networks" from it, such as Amazon Prime - free, if you're already a Prime member, HULU, Netflix, YouTube (although, I don't know if that's the same one people get as their primary device. There are probably many other just as good or even better, but once you start using a system, many become lazy and don't research other devices

DO NOT BUY from The Firestick Guy Brian at the market of Marion. Remain part has been down almost 2 weeks. I call or text Brian and I get responses that are very rude. Live and learn

In Europe, authorities shut down a service called Xtream Codes. It is not a IPTV Service, but rather a front end system used by the IPTV services. This has caused many of the services to go off line. The shut down occurred about two weeks ago. This most likely why the “Firestick Guy” services are down.

What does this mean? Do you think the services will be restored?
