Commercial Break

By Aristarchos LTD.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Break free from TV commercials !

We will let you know when your program is back from commercials.

Commercial Break (CB) is a mobile app that lets you watch TV without the agony of watching commercials.

It's Easy!

When you're watching TV and commercials come up, you can be totally free to change channels, go to the kitchen or do anything you like with YOUR time during commercials.

Don't worry about missing the return of your show. We got you covered!
We notify you, the moment your program returns from the break.

How does it work ?

Let's say you're watching a movie on TV. Launch the app on your smartphone,choose your channel and tap "Start".

When the movie cuts to a commercial break, you can go to the kitchen and grab a snack and a drink, change channels or even turn the TV off!

The moment the commercials are over, we'll send a notification to your mobile device that your program is back.

You can now return to viewing the movie, without watching a single commercial.

It's also great for live sports -
Let's say you're watching the Lakers game. There's a time out.

Perfect timing to get a beer from the fridge and switch a channel to watch some more sports!

We'll let know immediately when the Lakers game is back. Now that's cool!


Currently supported in the US only, primarily in the New York area, more locations coming soon !

* Free for a limited time

Great for studying

I study during commercial breaks, but mute it so I'm not distracted. BUT, with this app, I don't have to keep glancing up to see when it's back. I just focus on my studying in silence, always affected by the constant fear of the app failing, but it hasn't so far! 😗

Great App

Fire it up, tell it what channel your watching and it tells you when the show is back. It's great.

It lost a star as once I did not get the notification.

False advertisement

The pictures show abc, nbc, etc, but the app only has but only 3 channels. Don't waste you time downloading this it's not worth it. I just set a timer on my phone and it works just fine.
