Re: Ads before content!?

I just googled this cr4p after being annoyed and see it is indeed a thing. I’m getting giffgaff adverts before programmes. I’m in uk.

No doubt the ads are tailored to your interests; have you also been Googling mobile phone deals?

 

But as we tirelessly explain, you need Boost to run ad (though not unskippable promo) free, and it brings other benefits with it.

 

We’ve not been watching Now much lately, though we have just started White Lotus (or rather Muddy Yellow Lotus as we call it, since the colour is so peculiar - and no, it isn’t a Maui thing as we have been there, and the colours are normal).

 

But the great thing about Now is that you can leave whenever you want - whether because there’s nothing you want to watch, or because there is enough to watch on other services that agree with you that charging a subscription and still showing you ads is extracting the urine.

Shhh… you might start Now agreeing with you about one overarching Boost, and launching a family of individual Boosts, one for each membership.

 

Which they would somehow contrive to increase their revenue above that from the existing arrangement 😛

Cancelling mine for sure. Absolutely not going to pay a subscription of any sort to then have adverts that you can’t skip. There are plenty of other services out there with far more content and no mandatory adverts.
