As a Uverse subscriber, I can count on one hand the number of minutes I've ever spent on these channels. Even on a large HDTV, everything's too small to see what's going on.
I do wish they'd stop it in the Sox games, regardless. Most in-game advertising is benign and unobtrusive enough that it doesn't detract from the game; that's not the case in this situation.
I agree, but if you ever watch a Cubs game on U-verse they give you a channel for every camera at the game as part of the "Multiview" so you ca watch the dugout all game, or the pitcher, or outfield....
I have not yet seen this for the Sox broadcast, yet they advertise it every game.
