Adverts with Boost?

I started getting adverts a few months ago when Now announced you need a boost subscription to share logins, and see no adverts. 

 

I reluctantly paid for boost because I couldn't hack seeing that ridiculous McDonalds advert where they're all laughing for 30 seconds - pathetic. 

 

Anyway, a few days ago I started getting a 30 second advert before the show starts, an advert I can't skip. Does anyone know why this might be, or are Now just mugging me off? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Adverts with Boost?

@Sidd 

Is this a promo for NOW content? Or is it third party?

 

If it’s the former then that’s what we have to put up with.

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

it's not third party - it's for Now TV shows. Extremely annoying!

Annoyingly this is what the streaming world seems to be aiming to. Paramount+ do unskippable promos for its content at the start.

 

Even Amazon as promos too, at least however they can be skipped!

Re: Adverts with Boost?

exactly! you should at least be able to skip them. iPlayer has skippable adverts, and Amazon like you say. ridiculous

I think it's despicable that they are showing adverts when we pay extra to NOT SEE ADVERTS.  We should all complain about this.

If it’s promos for NOW content at the start of the show there is nothing that can be done.

 

Paramount+ and other services operate the same way in the US.
