If they still had those and the alka seltzer commercials...I’d definetly not use “skip” function
Maybe considered cruel and unusual punishment, but I MAKE my young granddaughters watch at least one or two episodes of the oldies from the 50's, 60', 70's, etc., every time they come over. They are learning the characters names and info about their lives, thanks to **Bertha**. They come prepared to binge watch Back to the Future, 1, 2,3, at least every other month.
But I record all the oldies (at least few episodes of each show), with the commercials intact..... Their idea of media consumption is YouTube 90% and Netflix 10%, of course that is only in their spare time, the majority of their time is texting, or whatever they do on their phones.
But, I must confess, I do all my recording, and live watching, using the HDHomeRun app. BUT, I prefer Kodi for watching my recordings. It is much, much easier for me to find **shows** that I wish to record, using the HDHomeRun app, but then, again, I am OTA, so not a lot of diverse channels to confuse me. I am easily confused, I prefer to keep it simple, the KISS method.
