Probably - if you watch in real time.

Personally, I always watch recorded shows and jump-forward the commercials.

I do not think I have seen more than 15 seconds of any commercial in over 10
years.

I run a Tivo-on-Steroids app on my 24-7 PC and record to drives on same.  

There's a little black box under each TV that gives me a UI into the
Tivo-on-Steroids app.

"SageTV"... used to be a commercial product - discontinued when Google bought
it out to harvest the brainpower behind it.

But the public domain version, which everybody uses now, is still kickin' it:

The short answer is "no". You can get TV content in a number of ways via  
Roku, but they aren't free. Services like Hulu offer some of the shows  
on several networks, but most shows are not included and there is a  
monthly charge for Hulu. Some networks, such as CBS All Access offer  
selected content, but they charge for it. None of the options are like  
watching broadcast TV.
