Default Football (EPL) Coverage - please synchronise ad breaks

Hi
As I'm sure you are aware, the feed for EPL games, buildup and discussion programs has built-in filler spots designed for broadcasters to fit in their ad breaks, where the programs break and snippets of old games or interviews are shown. Usually, you use these for your own ads, but sometimes, whether due to someone asleep on the job or a breakdown of an automated process, things seem to go wrong.

Today, I was watching the "PLTV - Kick Off" program from 10:30 to 12:00. At around 11:00 the show stopped for the usual filler/ad break, we saw the filler, then they returned to the studio to start discussing the Man U game. Just as this was getting going, at roughly 11:06, you cut away for your ad break and we missed a bug chunk of the discussion. Not only is this incredibly frustrating, and seemingly unnecessary, but also really breaks the flow of the program as you essentially have two fairly long breaks in the space of 5 or 10 minutes.

Please, please, whoever is responsible for turning the ads on and off, please make the effort to synchronise them with the filler periods in the feed. This happens often, including during Sky Sports News sometimes, so it's not just a one-off issue I'm raising. A bit of care with this would improve our experience a lot.

Thanks.

Just happened again, 15:30 on Football Today. Watched the few minutes of filler (designed for ad breaks), then just as they crossed back to the studio we went off for ads (did the person responsible just see the title screen and think it was the end of a segment, not the beginning?), including 4 various Supersport ads. UNBELIEVABLY FRUSTRATING.
