Genuine unabashed greed. Shameless lack of explanation and definitely not worth it given that:
1. The app is prone to crashing.
2. The bitrate tanks randomly.
3. Crap, nonsensical adverts trying to sell me things I do not and will never need.
4. I have to download a program to even stream it? And the reasons make zero sense! Just have it be in-browser for goodness sake.
Once I'm done with my binge I'm out, indefinitely. Sod this platform.
I completely agree it’s not like it’s 1 add per episode it’s 2-3 every 15 minutes and the content of the app isn’t getting any better either so they're definately not spending the majority of the money on the shows it’s greedy bussiness I’ll be cancelling for definate rather buy dvds with my money at this rate atleast a 45 minute show won’t take an hour and 15 minutes to finish and I’d have full control of what I’m actually buying
Most streamers are doing it and soon to be doing it.
Disney+ launching an ad tier at the end of the year.
Netflix has launched theirs already.
Amazon launching theirs next year.
Discovery+ has ads and no amount of money can stop them 😡
