Ad Blocking With No Limits Internet
Posted by FreedomNet
It seems like this day and age there’s a new TV show popping up every hour. And while most fail to catch the interest of the general public, many succeed and go on to endure for several years with loyal fan bases. With the large success of premium cable channels like HBO and cable network shows like Breaking Bad and American Horror Story, companies such as Netflix have invested a lot of money and recruit top talent to create their own original series that have also received critical acclaim (i.e. House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black). Thus, it is the opinion of many that we are currently living in a Golden Age of Television featuring high production quality mixed with intricate storylines and featuring some of the best actors and actresses of this generation.
One thing that has not changed is the ever present advertisements that constantly interrupt and annoy us, and despite the best efforts of the advertisers themselves, consumers are starting to get their own way. Netflix alone accounts for a majority of TV consumption for many people around the world, and one great thing about the service is that none of its programs feature any advertisements at all. Even those with cable television have the luxury of using DVR boxes to prerecord shows and watch them at their leisure while being able to fast forward through commercials and getting right back to the story they left off. Streaming focused website Extreamist.com did some small analysis and figured out that Netflix subscribers who devote an average of 1.5 hours a day to streaming can save its subscribers from over 130 hours of commercials a year. This number only increases each year as user consumption of TV media has increased at a constant rate over the past 5 years.
Many who use Youtube have recently experienced advertisements that are featured in many videos that are hosted on the website. What many do not know is that the advertisements themselves can be completely removed for free using a simple extension that acts as an ad blocker. Ad Block and it’s similar, but unrelated cousin Ad Block Plus are two of the most popular Google Chrome and Safari extensions that not only eliminate advertisements on Youtube, but also a majority of advertisements across a wide range of websites including Facebook and news Websites like CNN and Fox News. While this is bad news for the advertisers themselves, there is no better time as a consumer to browse and stream media over the internet without the hassle of third parties vying for your attention on the screen.
