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? .......


They've started to pop up on Roku devices although they are still much of a rarity as yet.

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...


I very rarely get the adverts on a Roku Streaming Stick+ but they do pop up once in a while.

@Anonymous User Interesting, I would have assumed they would be the same frequency on Roku as on NOW TV branded boxes given they use the same NOW TV app ... maybe you're just not watching the right shows! You need to watch more trashy TV like Lindzi and me! 😉 Those high-brow political documentaries you watch just don't cut it with the advertiser demographics ...

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

 


@Lindzi Don't apologise, I'm with you on this one - sort pre-show ads first, then tackle world peace and self-ironing clothes...

In the meantime here's some cute kittens to lower the blood pressure ...cat.gif

I would have thought that too but I find the whole process rather random. I asked two friends to test out an episode of S.W.A.T. earlier, one with the same Roku product as myself (Stick+), and the other with a NowTV Smart Box. The guy with the smart box had no advert, nor did I, but my other friend with the Roku did have an advert. 

I suppose I better be off and buy a new anorak now I've been rumbled (Those high-brow political documentaries you watchSmiley LOL Smiley LOL Smiley LOL

@Anonymous User Nice little experiment! Could maybe be a possible strategy for us avoidists to use - call up all our friends and get them to watch all the ads, once the quota for the hour is used up we can enjoy all our viewing ad-free ... it might just work! 😄

I am unamused to say the least. Watching sky witness at moment and getting 2 adverts at breaks in every episode. We pay a subscription so as NOT to have this.

@izabfixit4u 

Do you have Boost? 
Is it NOW promotional adverts or third party adverts?
