    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.

    I never see them - I use the uBlock Origin plugin.

    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.
