Paramount pop up ads

I'm getting pop up ads for Paramount during shows. It will minimize the show and ask me if I want to watch the paramount channel. I have to x out to close the ad. In my settings (I have a roku express connected through an Xbox one) I can't find anything to turn off the ads that has already been posted. No smart TV setting under store etc. Any tips because this is obnoxious!

Re: Paramount pop up ads

What channels are you watching when this happens, any in particular?  Paramount is part of the Viacom/CBS conglomerate -- I'm suspicious that Viacom may be doing this on their stations.
