Can we look forward to a change to the interface? Will Channel 4's media contain advertising breaks, with the ability to skip/fast forward disabled?
I hope not, but lets face it, the advent of PVR's has left advertisers more & more concerned about the fact that people don't actually like advertising breaks. Personally I love them, gives me time to go and have a cigarette, make a cup of coffee, or use the toilet. But, if I'm watching BBC and want to do the same thing, I just hit pause. Either way advertisers lose out, but at least on live telly you can't skip that short break, even if you don't actually watch the ads themselves.
Should be quite a good thing when it happens, haven't used 4oD on the PC in a while, but IIRC it required Windows, so opening it up in this way is definitely a good thing.
How many people will use it though? I use 4oD through my STB so unless I'm out & about, I probably won't be using Youtube to watch them.
