Indian Television Less Contents More Ads

Today while watching NDTV Profit’s Buy or Sell at around 12:15 PM IST, I notices that the commercial break was around six minutes long while the content was around three minutes and another commercial break followed after that.

This is overall experience on other indian television channels as well. For non real time entertainment, one can still get commercial free entertainment of favorite TV shows (Roadies ;)) via YouTube or P2P, but for Live cricket etc there is no option but to watch those Ads.

Another pain regarding these sports channels is, one has to pay extra to the cable/dish operator to be able to see them.

I feel that if I am paying extra for sport channels then they should be commercial free.
