Stop show blocking ads sign now

We believe that Australian Free to Air Television stations have gone too far with their station advertising during programs.

The most annoying form of advertising is when the credits roll they condense the credits into a quarter of the screen, display the name of the advertised show on the bottom half and a clip of that show in the top quarter while a voice over person tells what it is about. Some shows have little comedy sketches during the credits or part of the end of the show but we get a voice over guy.

Another annoying form of advertising is the banner along the bottom of the screen advertising coming shows. It is distracting during LOST as it has regular subtitles and it always seems to appear while the subtitles are on the screen.

We believe the stations are ruining the viewing experience and these practices should cease immediately.
Alternatively the show makers should have in the contract that the entire show cannot be obstructed in anyway, This may also get rid of those annoying watermarks.
