Commercials on the ROKU channel

Would PAY to turn off commercials on the ROKU channel.  Annoying, preachy, and repetitive - along with certain ones (looking at you, NATURESWEET) blasting the volume at double the level of the program.

And who decides where in the program the commercials are placed?  Some AI bot??  Seriously, I was watching a movie (“Devil’s Mistress”) where the trapped and suicidal hero put a gun barrel in his mouth - cut to a series of insipid super-loud commercials - and then back to his brains blowing out all over the wall behind him.  Converting pathos into farce, at the end of the film.

Re: Commercials on the ROKU channel

Although Roku shares in the ad revenue, many (most? all?) of the commercials seen on The Roku Channel are not placed by Roku, but by the sources from which they obtain/license their programming.
