I just went to ABC.go.com and found episodes of Ugly Betty, a show I never catch due to my job, but I watched it once and found very good.

The beginning of each clip says "Brought to you with limited commercial interruption by Smirnoff" and there is a Smirnoff banner on the screen the entire time the episode is playing.

This would appear to me to be both a means to get some incremental revenue, and also to combat unauthorized posting on sites such as YouTube.
