Used to find stuff on YouTube that I actually wanted to see.
Sure there was a 5 second ad, no biggie.
But recently, i e over the last year or two, when I"ve been with friends listening to their music, its advert after advert, and even though it was in the background, I found it annoying to the point where I was going and kooking for the Skip Ad button !!
Even on TV, the adverts are deliberately played at a higher volume than the programme, (honestly check it out for yourself). So years ago I wrote to Ofcom to query why. Believe I had a reply that went along the lines of, you must be dreaming love !
Adverts work, we know it, they know it.
You are listening to the radio, actual radio, in your car.
Where can you go ?
You have no choice.
Online we have a chance, blockers or alternative players, that help us are one way.
Anyone seen Amazon's FreeVee tv stuff ?
You get a 'free' programme by watching an ad or three.
But wait, you have Prime, which said no ads.
You watch an Amazon Prime original series, and between episodes you get an advert for another show or film. Their show or film.
Hmm. Monopoly much ?
That doesn't make it right, it just means that we will keep finding ways to stop or reduce the adverts or go nuts in the meantime §:-(
