More like 300 seconds of commercials every hour. As to the format of how it will be done is currently unknown. I've heard they may sandwiched before and after, I've heard they would do ads during, I have heard maybe doing ads at the end before the next episodes of a show plays. So that will be interesting to find out.All good points.... Even if Comcast doesn't invest in 5G, they will have to respond to it as a competition and increase the speed of their wired lines. 5G will eat into their revenue, one way or another.
Also the Comcast NBCU streaming service is free everywhere with advertisement.... Its going to be like over the air tv for NBCU content like using the old rabbit ears. Nothing special and free as long as you like to feed their advertising revenue stream (8 commercials every 10 minutes).
Bottom line to me..... Comcast will be struggling on multiple fronts to pay for their ambitions..... I am thinking Disney will have the upper hand, and at the minimum, Comcast position in Hulu will shrink, in the short term and eventually be sold to Disney. Again, just my opinion.
But I do Comcast will pull out of Hulu, I just don't think anytime in the next 3-5 years.
