Ad block

I have an eero home wifi network and have been testing eero's ad blocking feature.  Surprisingly, the device with the most ad blocks is the roku. On days when I haven't watched tv, eero is blocking 2000 requests, and on days when I do watch TV, it's as many as 10,000.   I think I'm going to turn off ad blocking since I don't think it's fair to not 'pay' for content.  But the high number of blocks from the roku is disconcerting. Any idea why it's so high?

Re: Ad block

Maybe when you block an ad, it retries the ad?

Re: Ad block

Certainly could be. It's just interesting that an idle roku is now seeing as many as 4000 blocks in one day, as compared to an active cell phone getting a similar number.

Re: Ad block

eero only blocks screen ads it has nothing to do when watching free content that is supported by ads. You will still see these ads while watching. I personally like it eero ads blocking as it speeds up my network.
