[mythtv-users] Daddy, what's a commercial

I'm intrigued by this feature.
Currently making a shopping list of things I need to turn my old PC into 
a MythTV media centre, so I've not actually used Myth yet.

How does it detect and delete/skip the commercials? Sounds clever. Does 
it work everywhere, or a US thing? (I'm in the UK)
If you wanted to watch live tv, for example a 2 hour film, would you 
pause the start and estimate the time of adverts, then start watching 
advert free 20 minutes later or something?
Or don't any of you watch live TV any more?
