Profane Commercials

Jump to solution

I am very upset with the recent deluge of commercials coming out showing two gay cowboys. I find this commercial to be both offensive and unwanted in my home. Is there a way to control what commercials are being shown?

No, there's no way to control them. But unless you've seen such commercials within The Roku Channel, the commercials are controlled by the company that is providing the content. I believe that Roku does have an ad server that some providers use. But the ads shown are controlled by the channel provider, not Roku. So unless those ads were within TRC, you need to express your concern with the channel provider, not Roku.

@Lott2  I dnt blame you I wouldnt want to see that either.

You can complain to the FCC and that Channel directly.

Yes. This was very inappropriate. We do not need these unnatural scenes forced upon us nomatter how much the liberals want to yell it from the rooftops. Ridiculous.

Re: Homosexuality everywhere

Jump to solution

I demand the right to filter homosexual content and commercials. They pop up everywhere and it is a clear agenda by 4% of the population and I don't like it. If someone is gay and wants only gay content they should have that option as well. Stop introducing the topic of sexuality by surprise. I have children and I raise them the way I want to, not the way Roku wants.
