John you really need to give Popeyes a chance man. This could be life changing.

During this podcast, Wai pondered if there would be ads inserted during live PPVs. I really don’t think they’d go that far (aside from the ads that are already sprinkled throughout the show by WWE and their usual advertisers), and last night I asked a friend what Peacock does when they air live English Premier League:

"No ad breaks during matches besides halftime. I haven’t watched sitcoms or shows like that on Peacock.

If there’s a live game on, it’s not front and center on the app like it would be on every other streaming service. You have to search for it under sports. Yet if you want to watch a Jimmy Fallon show sketch from last night, it’s right there."

So, we’re really all just gonna sit here and let Jon disrespect the great work of the repo man? That’s what’s going on right now?
