The easy way is to get a harddisk recorder/receiver, capable of 
"pausing" tv.

When your movie/show/sport event begins, just pause it. Then, wait about 
as long as a commercial breaks usually is, before resuming and watching 
the movie slightly timeshifted.

When an ad comes, just fast-forward past it. :-)

An additional advantage is that you can pause the tv anytime, if you get 
a phonecall for example. And of course, recording stuff to watch at a
completely different time.
