Questions & Answers: TV Advertisements

Isaac: You want to know something cool about advertising? It lets you watch TV shows like Chopper Dan here for FREE! You know how sometimes right before a commercial break, you hear something like "This show is brought to you by…" and then the commercials start? "Brought to you by" means the cost of this show is paid for by the companies whose commercials are on the air. The money made from advertising helps lower or even eliminates the cost of a lot of entertainment on the radio, TV, and websites.
