Politics

Please Remove Political Ads. If I want to view Political opinions I do have that option by choosing to do so. I don’t mind having a program interrupted by Ads but when I’m forced to consistently watch Bias based Ads it makes me want to turn off Roku. Please Remove Political Ads. Thank you

Re: Politics

I'm in agreements with lat! I've had it with the biased political ads i will certainly get rid of the roku TV. I'm tired of hearing about LGBT, global warming and so on. I don't have cable for a reason and I can definitely do without this

Re: Politics

Not sure what you may be watching but for Hulu I went no commercials, best thing i ever did. Pluto TV is the worst! For having over 300+ advertisers they focus the same ads on each channel. Vudu has gotten better but still plays same ads over & over, sometimes it's the same ad 2-3 times in a row. 

Advertisers should be ticked off as they pay to have ads played fairly and it's NOT happening. Hulu is my main channel I watch because...NO ADS! I pay about $12 a month but so worth it!

Re: Politics

I want to know how eliminate the political ads. I don’t hate many things but assuming I’m stupid enough to follow the dictates of certain political viewpoints is insulting. I figure there is nothing to do about it but would rather see 20 more car commercials and 20 more insurance commercials than 1 more political ad. MAKE IT STOP!!!

Re: Politics

Ads are ads. Unless you have a Hulu or Netflix subscription you can't avoid them. For about $12 a month Hulu offers no commercials, well worth the cost! I did this over a year ago and Hulu is what I watch the most! Hope that helps.

Re: Political Ads Gripe

Roku sells ad space to whoever buys it where you live. If Biden's the only one buying ads for your state or city, that's what you'll see. It's not Roku's fault if Trump isn't buying ads in your area.

Re: Political Ads Gripe

People, Roku doesn't create the ads or show just what they want. Roku is an advertising medium just like the newspapers, magazines, radio, and broadcast TV. They sell advertising to whomever wants your eyeballs to see it. Roku is the seller, advertisers are the customer, and YOU are the product. That's how it works.

Not good to become a politically active Roku.
