Rubbish watching on ITV dot com

Some people say streaming is the future of the Internet.

Tonight, I watched the last-ever episode of "The Bill" and, after 10 minutes, the ITV feed froze. Hitting refresh after a minute, I had to then sit through a couple of statutory adverts before the drama resumed.

These were (a) 'get the AVIVA deal' and (b) ultimate bouncelookability from L'oreal. Result was, I missed much more than I needed to! I'll boycott those products from now on, after they intruded like that.

So, we have to sit through ads while the service resumes? I say that's crap, and ITV.com needs to get a bloody grip.
