For months, we've been promising (in the form of studies and surveys) that we'd cheerfully watch ads if it meant we could get television online for free. It's time to put your money where your "press 1 for yes" is: Disney and ABC are planning to offer , for free, the day after they air--with technology to keep you from fast-forwarding through the commercials. So, the question is: now that they're giving us what we asked for, how are we going to get away with being mad about the fast-forwarding thing?
