If I can throw in my two cents, I might like the ability to mute the
commercials when I'm watching LiveTV with no delay (that is, when I'm watching
real live tv). I find the commercials are so much louder than the show, it's
insane. I nearly deafen myself when the commercials come on. :)

Or I could just channel surf during the commercials... :)
