Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
CW is one that provides little to no ad-break relief when viewing their content on demand thru next-day airing in comparison to live viewing. Batwoman premiere was 42 minutes in length with a total viewing time of 52 minutes rounding down the seconds. 15 minutes of ads broken into 5 ad breaks. Content from other providers seem to provide a much lower advertising load than this. I have found that other ad-supported offerings seem to offer an ad load that is on average half of what the CW offers. 8 minutes or less on an hour show and 4 minutes or less on a half hour show.

I cannot believe the bombardment of advertisement I was accosted with last night on The CW channel!!! This isn't the first time this has happened on some Roku channels!
It was horrendous and completely unacceptable!!! 10 Advertisements in a row!!! Ridiculous!!!
What happened? I missed approx. 15 minutes of the show I was watching and when I backed it up 15 minutes, that's when the repeat advertisements blasted my screen and wouldn't stop! Then it happened again!!! When I rewound the show approx 30 seconds to see something I missed... I was again accosted by another non-stop blasting of the same advertisements I saw the previous re-wind.
Your developers SERIOUSLY MUST FIX THIS!!!
EXTREMELY BAD FORM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
