Did I just get an advert...

On the Samsung app?! First one I've had forced upon me so let's just nip this in the bud, we all make mistakes, but NO we are not going to do this are we Now tv?

We do not pay a subscription fee for adverts/trailers 😞

Sounds like they probably ARE! Smiley Wink

They were supposed to be skippable but nobody ever seemed to be able to do that...

It's all a bit random but YES NowTV do throw in an advert now and again before your stream starts.

so annoying! I abandoned the black box because of the trailers.. just can't bear them! Very loud, brash and they couldn't even give us a skip button as a compromise.

Re: Did I just get an advert...

@Lindzi Well that doesn't sound good - rolling out to other devices? I've also stopped using NOW TV's own devices and so haven't seen an ad for a while ... but maybe that's about to change. Perhaps we should enquire if we can be opted-out of NOW TV ads on the grounds the flashy loud intros cause an epileptic fit? Shall we ask for a doctor's note? .......

@Andy

It made me jump when it popped up before an episode of House (sooo loud!).....I am now always selecting watch next, even if I am not going to watch the episode. I am hoping that it was a mistake but that's not likely is it.

If they just let us skip them I would accept that as a good compromise. They can email customers new programmes/box sets to watch so why invade our living rooms with flashing lights and a million decibel adverts.

If a doctor's note would excuse us then I am all for getting one Smiley Happy

Have always had a pre-episode advert when watching most Entertainment On Demand content on Roku (real Roku, not NOW TV badged Roku) devices for a long time now!

So presumably it’s coming soon to a tv near you...

@Lindzi Would be interesting to see if anybody else starts seeing ads on other devices. I've no doubt it's something they want to implement - it's probably been easiest for them to implement on NOW TV boxes/Rokus as a start but they won't it just restricted to their branded devices. 

*sigh*

Have you noticed football ads on entertainment content? That annoys me, at the very least they should keep to 'same type pass' ads.

@Andy yes sometimes it’s a sport promo, but mostly ent promos

@Andy

No I have not seen any sport ads but that would tip me over the edge!! I mean I know I shouldn't be this annoyed, there are worse problems to have, but I just can't help it Smiley Embarassed
