Why mess about having to cancel, get an offer, be free of ads for a bit, have them come back, get in to another argument and get a concession - why not just offer a good value service and build steadily and honestly - not rely on people not caring they are being made fools of.
It’s simple, if you don’t want adverts then you pay for boost.
Whilst I don’t agree with adverts, it’s what most of the services do in the US. Pay for a service and get adverts, pay premium and get no adverts.
If it’s just promos for NOW content at the start then there is nothing that can be done.
I agree. I pay for a premium service, mostly to avoid adverts. I am sick to death of constantly being bombarded with advertsibg. If I'm paying for a service, I don't expect to have to watch them. You don't get ads on Netflix or Disney+, so why do they have them on NOW? Seriously considering cancelling my membership becuse of this.
Discovery+ is adding advertising for a reduced subscription fee.
Disney has confirmed they will be adding adverts next year.
All NOW done is beat them to it in the UK.
It's the thin end of the wedge. How long before they start interrupting the programme with ads as well? I might have expected that this change would come from America. Maybe we in the UK, who have been used to the BBC for so long, have a different take on it, not that the BBC is safe anymore.
It will make me think twice about renewing my subscription for NOW though, same for Disney. You can't do anything these days without some company screaming in your face, "BUY MY PRODUCT" and I'm heartily sick of it. I've actually stopped visiting certain sites because of it and hardly use youtube anymore.
Disney+ have stated they are going the advert route at a reduced membership cost.
Discovery+ have already joined that band wagon.
As mentioned by @redchiz1 Netflix are going to be bringing it in over the next year or so.
We don't like it, but its the quickest way for the big companies to gain guaranteed income via advertising.
Adverts are here to stay.
Disney+ will bring them next year. Discovery+ already has them
Netflix bringing them in the next year or so.
Just go to “cancel” and you’ll get a discount, I’m paying £5.99 for entertainment and £2 for Boost until August. Means no adverts for me unless I watch Live TV.
