To my complete amazement, the CBC is starting to run teasers about the 2014 winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. My goodness, the games are a year away! Yea, we’ve read that the CBC managed to get the broadcast rights, but are they planning a year’s worth of ads? Really?
Even if I weren’t annoyed enough at the Olympics to not want to see them at all, I’d still be annoyed at this jumping the ad gun.
The only bright side is that I’ve seen there ads only on the CBC News Network, so far. I don’t have cable, so while I’m at home, I won’t see these ads … until they start running on the main CBC television channels.
