Watching the opening ceremony was excruciating – advertising every (almost) 10 minutes. Goodness knows if I missed anything interesting during the cutaway. During the nations ceremony my kids tried telling me that India was in the Americas and that Fiji was in the Caribbean as the region change occurred during an ad-break.
If I want an ad-free experience, am I forced to watch a streamed version of the event(s) or is that peppered with advertising too?
And is this a pre-cursor to what the RWC will look like? If so, then a Lightbox subscription will actually be worth paying for to have an uninterrupted viewing experience.
