i am in my anual lenten boyycott of youtube . reading . surfing the net

and of course , du. du rocks also on youtube , i may not return. yt is insisting that everyone pay $10.00 month to remove ads , im glad i have a pretty good ad blocker but the buttons for the ads are annoying.
i first joined youtube in 2009 through various accounts that were hacked , then google went and bought it and now its a pile of shaaaving cream.
on that $10.00 a month thing to remove ads , a friend of mine does that and he still gets ads .

1. Your friend needs to contact YT. I pay the monthly fee because I HATE ads and I never see them.

I recently had a problem with ads appearing when watching YouTube on my TV but they stopped when I unplugged the TV then plugged it back in. Ads are gone again.

3. He might want to try bypassing his phone and sign in directly through his TV. That middle

step might be what's screwing things up. I signed out before I unplugged the TV then signed back in after I plugged it back in. I read on the YouTube community support thread that ads on some TVs are an issue. Tell your friend to click on his screen pic in the upper right-hand corner. When the menu appears, click "Help" then type something like "Ads appearing on TV Premium member" and a list of solutions will appear. It could be that YouTube doesn't recognize him as a member when he goes through his phone. That's one of the topics.



It drove me up the wall when the ads popped up. YouTube would be unwatchable if I couldn't remove the ads, lol.

4. Browsers

I use Opera and Firefox browsers with add-on ad blockers and have never seen an ad on Youtube.
