Worth also mentioning is the fact that these new "features", even if
they do allow time-shifting, will prohibit the skipping of commercials.
As most people are well aware this is already a common "feature" in DVD
players. Is there anything more annoying than renting or buying a DVD
and not being able to skip to where the movie actually starts?
However, the people who control this content should take notice; as I'm
subjected to more and more of these "features" I am less and less
interested in their products.
