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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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!
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.
Well I don't agree with it even if the US are doing it. To be honest there are a few things I don't agree with lately that the US have passed.
Extra payment should mean no adverts even if it is for content on the same or affiliate channels. If it has to happen, you should be given the option to skip it if you pay.
I think this is really disgusting!! I paid for boost because I hate adverts they really irritating me and package clearly says ad free !!! This is not ad free!!! If I want to see ads I will go on youtube!!! it's ridiculous that Im forced to watch something I dont give a crap about and whats worse if I select wrong tv show and want to watch previous episode again as I missed few things I'm blessed with sane irritating advert all over again this is by far worse streaming platform I have sogned up with. I have netflix, amazon prime, Disney + STAR and now tv by far is the worst when it comes to adverts. Once I finish watching 4 tv shows I want to watch I will cancel both of my subscription here and remove this crappy app!!
What sort of “adverts”?
1. Third party such as Tesco or Halifax throughout the content?
2. Promos for content on Sky before the content begins?
The latter is here to stay, would be nice if they gave us a skip button. If it’s the former and you’ve just applied boost, you’ll need to log out and back in to kick start it.
