Do you think there will be commercial breaks on tv ten years from now?

Last time I saw TV there was an add every 5 minutes.
And last time I saw pay TV it was the same story with less variation.

Do you think it will get worse or better?

Yeah definitely. Networks exist heavily off ad revenue and I don't think that's going to change. It's gotten better, mostly because the average attention span is at an all time low and people's brains are wired to constantly have stimulus, but commercials are a vital part of TV and I highly doubt that's going to change.

how do you expect TV to make most of its money? they make a LARGE portion of their profits from advert revenue :3. They charge some ridiculous amount for every second an advert lasts (well they do that in my country, so i expect it to be the same in most others)

As long as Hulu and Youtube exist, we'll have ad spots.
