Every single video I'm clicking on, I'm gettin a minute long or 30 second clip for either IE9 or some professional Starcraft Tournament!! It never used to be like this, are the rest of you guys gettin the same kinda thing?

Yes, ads before every video.
I thought ads were meant to be specific to regions? All I see is American Tv adverts on the side and eeeeeeeee-sports trailers.

Adblock doesn't block the video ads, I don't think, or it disables the entire video. I think.

Nope, it blocks just the ads, and the video plays fine.

It blocks the ads and the videos still work with it.

Well that's because...

Oh, I get it.

Yup, no ads here either. Especially on the Random-Ass PC Game videos.

There are annoying one's when they livestream via Twitch that play before the video and sometimes in the middle of the stream, but other than that no for me.

There seems to be a bit of confusion in here with people saying they only see ads on the stream or don't see ads on the site. If you don't see adverts it's probably because you're a paid member. If you've got a subscription, the kind of stuff Shalashaska is talking about won't apply to you.

I don't mind the extra ads, though the majority of them are completely useless for me... CBS CRIMINAL MINDS SEASON PASS! yay, get a season pass for something I can't see. Or how about the text ad that says: "And the Lord said: Climate change is real." What is that about?

The only think I could live without is those slightly annoying Starcraft Tournament video ads before every single video, I could live without video ads, but the rest is fine and all...
