Ad experience inappropriate for children

My children are watching an animated movie on the Roku channel and so far there have been advertisements for an uterine fibroids medication, pubic hair removal, and a political PAC. Why? Why in the world are there ads during children's programming? They don't have any money and the interruption annoys me so much I swear off the product or company. We aren't going to watch anything else on the Roku channel until there are people monitoring this; if it were up to me we'd drop Roku altogether and go back to our old streaming system.

Re: Ad experience inappropriate for children

For the LOVE!! My 6 yo grandson enjoys watching kids plays video games on the free Roku channel but he was shaken by an ad for the SCREAM channel. What in the world is going on with your people in programming this “free” channel?!  I will have to delete your channel and encourage my friends if this continues. Completely ridiculous.
