In response to a question on why personal video recorders (PVR's) were bad for the industry, Kellner responded: "Because of the ad skips.... It's theft. Your contract with the network when you get the show is you're going to watch the spots. Otherwise you couldn't get the show on an ad-supported basis. Any time you skip a commercial or watch the button you're actually stealing the programming."

For the past 80 years, passive media (print, radio, and TV) have had what amounts to a "contract" or "general agreement" with users/viewers. That agreement is the simple concept that we will tolerate advertising as the means for generating revenue that pays for content development.

I didn't sign any " general agreements " or " contract " with anybody. I pay for the TV cable,ok. But I pay for looking movies and shows, NOT for looking ad's.
