This week saw the launch of netflix in Australia as the third major internet based content provider available to us. Each has a base starting package priced at around $10 per month while the two supposedly competing cable networks (Foxtel & Optus TV) have basic packages @ around $25 per month but to get decent programs & movies the cost of additional package options can take the total to well over $100. not including pay-per-view and without any on-demand content. One thing that was revealed about the new Netflix service is that the library available to Australian consumers has around 6000 fewer titles than our American friends. ? Now for my rant. I got PAY TV because I believed there would be fewer advertisements since we subscribers actually pay for the content. How mistaken I was. These days not only are there as many or more ads than the free-to-air channels, the ad-breaks across all the cable channels are synchronized with those on the commercial stations rendering my remote-control almost completely worthless as an advertising-avoidance device. Thank goodness for the MUTE button. End of rant.

To add to your rant, my pet peeve is the elimination of the Fast Forward feature when viewing TWC On-Demand programs.

It's bad enough that we can't FF through commercials (which are admittedly fewer than when viewing live programs) but maybe even worse than that is the fact that we are allowed to rewind to review something we may have missed (or misunderstood) but we can't then FF back to where we left off. We are forced to rewatch what we already saw.

I can see preventing FF initially to force us to watch the commercials, but at least allow us to FF back to where we were before we did a rewind.
