Medical advertisements on roku tv

I have had a Roku for many years. I love it, I bought it because I was tired of cable TV channels and their medications ads. As a person who has many different conditions and alot of cancer I don't want to be constantly reminded of illness. I want to enjoy my tv time as a distraction. I was enjoying Roku channel and of course here comes a cancer ad. Really a let down because I enjoy the programs. So now I hesitate to watch anymore and have gone back to the no ads pay apps.

Re: Medical advertisements on roku tv

That sounds like a good solution.  On commercial TV, the advertiser is the customer and decides what ads are desirable.
