My first reaction to this was "What??" I mean, how could they push ads onto our media players? We pay for the hardware and content. Putting an ad on the device? But then when I read the rest of it, it made a bit more sense. I know that I already have seen advertising as part of video podcasts (and part of a podcast or two) which never bothers me. The way that this is presented in the article it sounds very unobtrusive.
Personally I'm up for anything that has the potential to increase the amount of content I can have on my device. I think it'd be awesome to be able to friend some of my favorite bands and get ad support content like they describe. I'd rather do it without the ads but since its opt-in I think if this is how they choose to do it then that works fine for me.
