Advertising and Roku website problems

First, I'm constantly getting Medicare,  Medicare life insurance, Burial insurance, aarp,  All things senior associated with in commercials. That's it. ALL old people stuff    I can handle commercials but holy moly give me something I can use unless you know something I don't

Second,  there are several issues with the website that don't work and when I tried to email them about it, that didn't work either.

Re: Advertising and other problems

Same gripe over the ads - too often repeated about burial/end of life insurance and mental health drug symptoms... I'm not ready to die, my insurance is in order, and I don't take drugs for mental health nor do I have tardive dis...whatever  as a result of mental health drugs.  These play repeatedly and really turn me off.

Re: Advertising and Irrelevant Targeted Advertisements

It's obvious that you have me confused with someone else - I am not ancient, poor, nor mentally ill.  However, even if the ads were relevant, they would elicit negative reactions.  My latest gripe is the AARP ads.  I believe this is the American Association of Retired People.  I'm being bombarded by an ad that makes no sense to me conceptually.  I understand the need for a revenue stream, but try for better ads, better methods of analysis for targeting purposes, and far less repetitive and vociferous presentations.  I'm tired of having to hit the mute button and avert my eyes in order to maintain my sense of self worth.
