Disable advertising

Jump to solution

I bought roku believing it to be advert free but when I watch tv episodes, adverts pop up mid program. How can I disable advertising permanently?

Whatever made you think it was all free of advertising? Content creators must make money somehow. Some pay channels like Netflix are free of ads. Some channels showing public domain content are also add-fee, or show limited ads.

Remember the TANSTAAFL principle: There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch!

I asked when buying and was told it had no advertising. Since then I have rarely used it so I was surprised was all. Its not important just a little irritating having heard one thing and finding another.

Thanks for the reply, have a great afternoon.

Who told you there was no advertising? Salesdrones will tell you anything to get you to buy something.
