That makes sense. I usually just try to expand my Spanish vocabulary when they air but for those it clearly bothers at least they know to take it up with the individual channels.

I see it on the Roku Channel, so I am reporting it. This has been happening for the past several months. Roku is responsible for the Roku channel, so Roku needs to fix the issue.

Interesting. That’s one of the few channels I’ve not had any Spanish language commercials on.

I'm unsubscribing from all paid content because of this & going forward I'll never purchase Roku products again. Keep track of advertisers who do this. Enough is enough.

If I want Spanish ads I would learn Spanish and move to Mexico. Since there are no more Mexicans left in Mexico as they are all over here I can convert the language to English !

I can’t stand it either. All tv services have required add channels for external languages outside of ENGLISH in the United States. I don’t want to learn a different language through tv. It’s redundant and annoying. 100% represent. Over it. Truthfully cultural integration is based off where you are not where you came from. This is the newcomers responsibility to learn the countries language predominantly spoken, not try to change a country that has existed before them.

It's all about the money. These streaming channels don't give a flying **bleep** about the people that PAY to watch the programs. This is nothing but disrespect to all English speaking subscribers and it's getting worse everyday. To put this in perspective what if they targeted African Americans by putting only programming that spoke native African language that they can't understand. We're all being used by advertising companies that we don't care about in the first place. What we do care about is our cash being used in a way that favors them and gives the rest of us a big🖕

I agree they are annoying. This is America people we speak ENGLISH ! If I was in Mexico then I would understand it and I would have to learn the language, but I’m NOT so cut this **bleep** out! If you don’t know ENGLISH learn it!
