Top 5 most annoying TV commercials on TENNIS CHANNEL

Help me finish that list. Feel free to vote for other “winners” in that category add new candidates. Hopefully someone at Tennis Channel will take note and at least change the types of ads they run (if not remove them completely).

1. LATISSE – GROW LASHES – How to grow bigger lashes!

2. THE BELLY BURNER – Get blazing abs by wearing a belt.

3. E-HARMONY – How to find a wife or a husband online.

4. CASH FOR GOLD – How to get paid cash for your jewelry.

5. THE SLAP CHOPPER – How to chop vegetables.

Why can’t all TV be like Hulu? If you really must run ads for lack of a normal way to monetize your service (like charging your customers), then at least let us choose our commercials? Is that hard?

Imagine going to a restaurant and, instead of just paying for your food, you are forced to watch pampers commercials till you’ve paid up.

“Djokovic thrashes Nadal in Paris” http://bit.ly/2mt1wJ … Bummer, I wish I hadn’t seen that headline. But, it’s getting hard to avoid catchy headlines that can spoil a match I haven’t seen yet.

I like how content is syndicated and fed to my Twitter and I can look up tennis schedules, scores and gossip. But the drawback to all that easy of access is that all content is often spread onto a bunch of different Facebook type media and blogs.

It’s happened time and again. I log onto Twitter – and boom – breaking news, match result headline: 6-4, 6-2. I have to remind myself to not touch my laptop or iPhone if I missed a match I still wanna see.
