    Rant Youtube ads

    Since Youtube Red was launched, it feels like there are a gazillion ads to contend with on the free service.

    I like youtube, and had no issue with the occasional ad, but now they are everywhere: at the start of videos, at the end, in the middle. Some of them you can't even skip.

    It's not even as if the paid service is reasonably priced - you kind of expect 7.99 or 9.99 a month for a subscription on most other stuff.....but youtube want 11.99.

    Boooooooooo

    They need competition. That's is why imho. They think they can do whatever the fuck they want.

    Which of these apps work on Android without requiring root? Last time i had an adblocker it needed a rooted phone. Can't see ublock origin on the play store.

    The ads are getting worse though, i notice them even more after a 3 months trial of premium 11.99 a month is silly money just to remove ads.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] works great on Android. I use it with MicroG so I can comment and view subs like the official app.
