    Raw With No Adverts

    For the first time ever in the show's history, the 6/22 edition of Raw from Green Bay, WI will be broadcast with no commercial breaks. The telecast will be uninterrupted from start to finish. This means creative has to treat the show like a PPV since they won't go to break throughout the entire broadcast.

    pwinsider
    Should be a refreshing change, theres nothing worse than an advert break just after a match has started.

    Why are there no commercials during this particular episode?

    I usually download Raw so the commercials have never really been a problem for me, but when I used to stay up till 4am there was nothing more annoying than an ad-break every 5mins or so.

    Re: Raw With No Adverts

    Advertisement....or their minds...or both. i mean why would WWE put on a two hour broadcast with no commercials? That going to be great for us but horrible for them.

    Easy answer to that, publicity.

    Re: Raw With No Adverts

    That is very much a good point, but what is the public going to think? "Oh they lost all their advertisements, they must not have a good show". i think it is a stupid move on the half of WWE.

    They havent lost their advertisments though, what the WWE can say is that you can watch the WWE ad free this week, it stops channel surfing.

    Meh.

    Do get me wrong, i am looking forward to this, but I dont think it is a smart move.

    If you look at it, they are going to lose alot with their replays: Wednesday and Sundays on Mun2.

    I actually prefer commercials. Gives me time to get a drink, get some food etc. Dumb idea.

    I like the idea of them doing this to prevent channel surfing. Maybe this is a trial and if successful they'll do it more regularly once the football season starts and their up against Monday Night Football?

    This is a pretty good idea, should stop people from channel surfing. Having a break every 5 mins really pisses me off & i'm sure im not the only person it pisses off.

    Re: Raw With No Adverts

    Anyone else feel like this is the work from Bing? I ask because I was watching a show, it went to commercial, then suddenly all the commercials went into super fast forward. It was then followed by "You get 2 more minutes of show, from Bing.com, because we know your time is valuable."

    Re: Raw With No Adverts

    That would be great because Raw sucks because of those countless ads' too but it doesn't make any difference to me because i watch it on a different channel so i would still i have to see ads' and all that.Other than that thats' a pretty smart move on part of Vince.

    They have to follow the American ad breaks when Sky Sports shows it live, and American ad breaks are fucking ridiculous. They are something like every eight minutes, and they last for close to five. It's starting to happen over here now as well. Both ITV and Channel 4 are having more ad breaks for longer. It'd pretty shit really.

    It's Raw. You'll still be able to do that cos I guarentee just cos it doesn't have breaks does not mean we won't get a ton on unwatchable shite.

    I definitely think it's a good idea to repeat this idea four or five times a year, especially when it's up against such big competition as the NFL (which I'm still clueless as to the appeal of) but it would be a big gamble. Automatically a huge chuck of you advertising revenue is thrown out of the window, and if you don't pop ratings enough to make it worthwhile then that pretty much pisses on your parade entirely.

    Re: Raw With No Adverts

    There will be shit loads of "Dont try this at home" & "WWE coming to you in November" adverts.



    And when there is no hope,
    "I'll smoke some crack, I'll shoot some dope!"
    When theres no enemies,
    "I sit and stare at my T.V.
    and in my ignorance,
    I'll be a slave and sycophant!"
