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.

You can complain to the FCC and that Channel directly.
