Ads/Commercials on TFC
« on: June 20, 2013, 12:25:05 AM »
I'm just wondering why we have to sit through commercials and ads when watching TFC shows. We're paying for this service already. This is not a free off the air channel.  HBO, Showtime and other pay channels don't show commercials. So why do you?

HAHAHA seriously right?! And their commercials are so STUPID and the models, where the heck did they come from?! Straight up FOBS and don't even know how to act! Might as well not have those commercials! >:(

TFC needs to make some type of profit correct? That is why there are commercials. What I hate is that they are the same boring California based commercials for used car lots, Atlas with Rico J Puno, grocery stories that only matter in Cali, phone cards, etc. They really need something else besides that. Some of their commercials have been around for years now.

Let's stay away from the 'FOB' comment though. Some of them are indeed HORRIBLE actors on those commercials though.

So are you saying that our monthly subscription to TFC is not profit enough for them? Please remember, we are not getting TFC for free. We are paying for it. Having commercials on TFC, in my opiinion, is not justifiable. I feel that they are just greedy that they need to make extra income on top of what we are already paying them as subscribers?

Fair statement but what can you do. It's just how its been done for years. The system won't change. Just change the channel when there are commercials, that's what I do or get something to eat or take a CR break.

Honestly, the commercials are much more tolerable than what we used to have on TFC a long time ago. Remember when TFC aired clips of various lifestyle shows (Salamat Dok, Matanglawin, etc.) when programs went into undertime? I just hated those.

Yes, the lawyer commercials and that 90s-esque commercial about this medicine or something are plain bloody annoying. But like Kuya Joey says, TV is TV. There are commercials for profitable reasons, and isn't like a more premium channel that has greater control.

Welcome Noel_Deo to the official ABS-CBN Messageboard.

Yeah I understand what you mean, it is rather annoying but he's kinda like the voice of TFC tv. Too bad its not me but my voice is a bit more baritone, lol.

How about the Star Cargo commercial with Star Magic artist Celine Lim which has her clutching a teddy bear from a balikbayan box from her mother. That looks like its been around for well over 7-10 years now. They need to update them let alone remove them all together.

How about those pathetic commercials with the Introvoys and Leandro Munoz or Rico J Puno, YUCK! Can't get any other work so you'll just hock anything that will give you a little extra cash? :P
