How Do I Disable Netflix App Ads

How do I disable video advertisements on the Netflix app for Roku?

I opened the app and it started repeat playing a video for OitNB. There is NO option to disable it on the Roku or on the Netflix website settings.

Any ideas?

Re: NEW NBC CHANNEL IS HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT

If you hate it, then try doing what I did... rate it 1-star then DELETE it! NBC might get the message.

Re: NBC channel

The "NBC NEWS" channel SUCKS! News in little snippets. The description of the channel CLAIMED that the Rachel Maddow Show was included in the lineup. LIE! It's not there. If NBC wanted to pull their content from the Roku Newscaster app, they should at least provide the content on their own...

Re: Hulu Plus Freezes

Just canceled my Hulu+ Subscription. They had a parting questionnaire and here's what I entered... Advertising: Too small of an ad pool. SICK of seeing the same ads OVER and OVER again! Technical Issues: Your Roku app was TOO buggy and caused frequent crashes and reboots. Other: Some shows are "...

No ethernet on the mid-price model is a deal killer.

Re: Roku seems more and more unstable

We have two N1100 boxes with the latest firmware and they become unstable over time. Running the Hulu+ app is guaranteed to lock them up and require a reboot. I submitted this problem in their latest survey. Netflix has expanded their TV show catalog and it overlaps with Hulu. I'm probably just gonn...

Re: Keith Olberman on Current TV

That's too bad! "Current encourages viewers to watch on their cable or satellite provider." As it turns out, we live in an area served just fine by over-the-air antenna, thus we have NO cable or satellite provider. So for viewers like us, I guess that means no Countdown.

Re: Hulu Plus Freezes

I've had neverending problems with Hulu as well. Usually, it becomes unresponsive. You try to pause and it ignores you. I think it's a memory leak of some sort because it gets worse, the more you use it, and the only way to fix the problem is to restart the Roku. It's EXTREMELY annoying. Who knows i...

Re: Is this a bad way to soft-Reset my Roku?

I deliberately use Home "Up (5x), << (2x), >> (2x)" to reset the box when it's locked up because I WANT to generate an error report. Maybe then, some of the repeated crashes will get fixed.

Re: New Channels

Saying foreign channels or other crap that's not interesting may be an ineloquent way of putting it, but I understand what he's saying. I mean, how many Indian programming channels do we need? Of course, I don't watch them, so I simply don't add them. The original poster could just ignore them like ...

Re: Which paid channels do you keep?

We cut the cable Sept 15, 2010 and we're subscribers to Netflix & Hulu+.

Those two meet all our needs.

Re: Interesting story on Netflix/Hollywood

For ME, HBO didn't have much content that I was interested in, so I wasn't a subscriber.

If HBO wants netflix to raise prices for HBO content then screw HBO. If Netflix chooses to cave in to HBO's demands, then Netflix should make it an OPTIONAL service that customers can choose to NOT pay for.

Re: Don't Hold Your Breath Waiting on HBO Content

If HBO wants Netflix to raise prices for carrying HBO's content then screw HBO. I cut the cable because of networks making must carry demands and price fixing. I haven't watched HBO content in many years. If Netflix chooses to cave in to HBO's demands, then make it a premium selection that customers...
