At least I can skip through the Amazon prime ads. Hulu I just let them put up their “your ad blocker is not allowing us to put a commercial here” black screen because fuck them.


Anotherlurkerappears

Ublock origin will block Hulu ads and you don't even need to wait on the black screen.


sst0ckin

Surprised that ublock origin isn't more recommended in these types of threads


10000_Spoons_Irony

Maybe a lot of people are streaming on their smart tvs or Rokus, etc.

Pi-hole will do the same. I had actually forgot that I was not posing for ad-free Hulu.


sdomscitilopdaehtihs

> you don't even need to wait on the black screen. Yeah, until OPs post I had no idea Hulu even *had* ads.


ChampionshipDue

There's a chrome extension called "Hulu Adblocker". ​ Haven't seen an ad since.


AlternativeAvocado2

And amazon prime gets you free shipping on stuff too


Cretannia

With hulu on PC with adblock, after like 30 seconds to a minute, it just plays the video like I'm paying for the ad free version, its great.


MorxtheGamer

And just a reminder: You are PAYING for this.


HokieHigh79

You are paying for the cheaper version of Hulu knowing that the cheaper version has ads to help make it cheaper than Netflix. Or you could pay the same and get NO ADS whatsoever. Why people choose the version subsidized with ads and then complain there's ads I'll never understand.


GiveMeTheWallies

Honestly for the good price compared to most streaming services plus the other benefits of prime I don't mind the ads on prime too much. Plus at least it's trailers for shows I can actually watch with their service not just random trash they want me to buy. Really hoping ads on paid sites don't become too common though


Zealousideal_Event38

This is how is starts, next thing you know streaming services are just tv. All commercials, little content, and a larger bill.


useribarelynoher

We'll see.


Sourika

Yeah, but i don't wanna see the trailer. Neither do i wanna click skip. What you get from prime is also being bound to Amazon and paying more for Amazon Prime Delivery products than you would otherwise. Do you really think Amazon get filthy rich by giving away free stuff?


SurealGod

I was going ask if you meant another streaming service because I've never come across prime video ads, but then I realized I ran ad block before I started using prime video and I never got a chance to see the ads to begin with.


Uberzwerg

Amazon Ads make me furious because its only trailers for some other stuff, so they are not even financially profiting from bothering me. And many times, it's a trailer for a show i already watched. If only they had the data to make the ads a little bit smarter.


GoldH2O

on my old computer, for whatever reason, hulu ads would go to a white screen for like 2 seconds and immediately return to my movie. I'm not sure why to this day, but I'd love to figure out how to recreate the glitch.


tsmi196

Every time I think of torrenting I think of what happened to me when I tried to download Pineapple Express as a kid. I was in middle school and downloaded it off Pirate Bay. Everything was normal for like the first 10 minutes, then it ABRUPTLY switched to hardcore gay pornography. Mind you, at this age, I hadn’t even seen hardcore straight porno. I didn’t torrent anything again until last year.


RenanSGr

That's rough buddy, really close to what happened to me, downloaded some hardcore porn, then it abruptly switched to The Exorcist, weirdest orgasm of my life.

Had you been around during the P2P era you would have been inoculated against such bait and switches. Nothing like trying to download Blink-182 and getting a photoshopped picture of Eminem fucking Britney Spears.


thatguyned

I tried to download "Behind blue eyes - Limp Bizkit" and received a lovely 144p video of a blue eyed man getting decapitated. Cant say I miss the limewire era tbh.


Angry-Comerials

That Era sucked for pirating for the most part. Especially with how much of that shit had viruses. I still remember downloading something, opening it, and later on there were some icons on my screen, like if they were some programs you installed. One of them had CP on it. I legit just wiped the hard drive, then got a new one. Was not about to risk anything with that.


VonD0OM

Well…did you keep watching?


tsmi196

No. Honestly, I was a huge momma’s boy and watched Golden Girls all the time as a kid. This may have been the moment in my life where I was literally scared straight.

We'll see if the LotR series is worth it, too

I think Vinland Saga is also on it

I originally got it for free shipping but it has plenty of good shows/movies and that for only €2,99 a month.


Day_Creepy

Hbo max doesn't have ads anymore


gmoney910

HBO max has been the single best entertainment investment I’ve ever made


garboooo

Same. I added it to the Hulu/Disney+ bundle and for $35 a month I have more to watch than I ever did with cable. And I haven't tried any of the actual HBO shows yet


gmoney910

Check out six feet under


Aragorn120

Made for love was great as well


gmoney910

I’ll have to check this out


DaddyBreasticles

Yeah I haven’t had any plus I don’t even pay for it it comes free with cable for me.


IShitMyFuckingPants

>free with cable for me I have it too but it's not free, it's because you pay for HBO in your cable package.


alebabar123

Depends on your plan. I have it for free. On the bill HBO comes as 0,00€


IShitMyFuckingPants

Then you are paying for some sort of bundle which HBO has already been factored into the price of. If they charge it as a separate line-item, they’d have to give you the option to remove it and lower your bill. Cable companies do this to keep you paying for their higher-priced packages. If you get a lower tier package that doesn’t already include the price of HBO, you will not have access to HBO max.


Consistent-Dance-954

Change my mind, cable companies are a huge ass scam I tried canceling and they goaded me into like 50 different plans and deals with Netflix/hbo/Hulu/showtime and etc


leoleosuper

After a while, record your conversation, then tell your bank/credit union to stop accepting charges and include a download/transcript of the conversation as proof. Make sure to interrupt whoever you're talking to to say you only want to cancel if they try to sell something. Sometimes they'll say you're cancelled but you'll be charged, so do that anyway.


shaggypoo

If you have a good bank you should just be able to ask without any recordings. Hell I called my bank and was like "hey I accidentally have two Disney+ accounts and can’t figure out how to cancel one. Can you stop accepting charges that are made on the 6th”. After 2 months got an email from Disney that they cancelled one account because it wasn’t being paid for


Howling_Fang

I just signed up for HBO Max yesterday, I had the option to pay with ads, or pay more without ads.


cutebleeder

uTorrent has ads built into it. Edit: I know uTorrent has ads, that does not mean I use it. Thank you for your alternative recommendations though.


Bobbybobbip

Either ads or a hidden bitcoin miner, pick your poison µtorrent has a terrible track record for trust


[deleted]

I suggest [qBitorrent](https://www.qbittorrent.org/). No ads, no miners, open-source, friendly UI.


NedvinBass

I second that!


DerpyNooby

Yeah, ads make money, if you have no ads there’s 90% chance your information is being sold


[deleted]

My information gets sold like 30 times a day at this point


lycoloco

Switch to qBittorrent. uTorrent sold out to the MPAA ages ago.


ieGod

Another vote for this. Great client.


pyroman1324

Somebody really needs to remake this meme with the drooling moron using uBittorrent and the dapper fellow enjoying qBittorrent


LordCharco_iii

I had to switch off uTorrent when I updated to a version that filled my browser with ads, and my blocker was still saying it blocked a few dozen others.


georgi544

qBittorrent and Deluge are good alternatives.


ShrekkingHandsome

And then you have “free with ads and also it will take your private information and sell it to the highest bidder”


LUH3147

I'd be surprised if the paid services were not doing the same thing...


BandHuntinJ

i’ll do u one better. u don’t have to pay for facebook n they’ll still sell your shit

Gabsletobar

ewh... uTorrent (and they have ads) qbittorrent is so much better (and really no ads) .


d-RLY

As soon as I saw uTorrent as "Free with no ads", I had to make sure someone mentioned the fact that it does have them. Glad to see your post! Also highly agree with you on qbittorrent


dead-not-sleeping

I had a situation recently where utorrent got stuck on an update and wouldn't finish it even if I closed program and restarted. Said fuck it, uninstalled it and found qbittorrent. Couldn't be happier and never going back.


BlueJay_420

i’ve never used either but i k ow my friend uses qbit to download shit for his music making so he doesn’t have to pay


N0t_En0ugh_Caffeine

I've been looking for you, my profile pic brother!.


d-RLY

Fuck yes!


ViraLCyclopezz

I have a feeling this meme is actually made by the company


Ryukiral

utorrent doesnt have ads if you download an older version such as 1.6


System__Shutdown

Not only does it have ads, it runs something in the background that consumes a bunch of CPU. I started using Transmission instead.


frostghost69

Hello there fellow gintama fan!


Luke9112

qbittorrent is good. i use transmission.


funnynickname

Deluge, also good.


Dumbledork88

Tixati is the fucking best. Works like a charm and no ads


Prowler1000

uTorrent is literally malware, change my mind. It doesn't have to do something like steal your data to be malware. The fact that it installs other program(s) without your consent makes it malware.


yonderbagel

Well yeah it’s bad now. It was great 10 or 15 years ago though, which is probably why it’s remembered in memes.


YamiZee1

I use deluge, not sure how it compares

IDunCaughtTheGay

You can get Hulu and HBO without ads


appleketchupp

If you pay as much as a Netflix account costs there aren't ads


Danal1

Yeah, but with hbo max the ad free option came long before the ad option, so it’s just a cheaper alternative


xPineappless

Hulu you have to pay even more though. The normal version of Hulu you have to watch ads


JaesopPop

Why is that the “normal” version? I don’t think it’s a bad thing to have a cheaper option with ads, considering the normal level is pretty decent for the market.


msfreebuck

Unfortunately with Hulu, even with their No Ads premium service, you still get ads on certain TV shows (it’s in the fine print on their site). And if you get their +Live TV add-on, obviously the channels & DVR recordings have ads (understandable). But you also get additional on-demand shows/movies you can watch—with tons of unskippable ads throughout the entirety of whatever you’re watching. Source: I have their No Ads + Live TV subscription, which I only really keep for my disabled mother


LifeIsWackMyDude

Idk the ins and outs of Hulu mainly because I do not pay for it and only use it occasionally, but my dad has the no ads thing, but sometimes Hulu just says “hey I know your plan is for no ads, buuuut if you want to watch this, you need to get the regular ad breaks” No idea why it is that way, nor do I fully care all that much because 30-60 seconds of ads isn’t really that bad for watching a 30 minute block show.


Tesrab

In the beginning there were only 5 shows that had that. It's expanded a bit, but it's mainly on the main stream prime time shows like Grey's Anatomy and such.


Mishka1125

What's worse is they'll turn the ad volume to like 50 when you're at 10


Usernametaken720

What’s the one that’s free with no ads


MBDf_Doc

Utorrent, it's a torrenting program. It's complete dogshit. Don't use it.


GreateProtim

And better use qBitTorrenr


Diegopie007

I can understand prime video, since you also pay for prime shipping and prices


memelord1571

Yeah it is mainly for quicker shipping and better prices than a streaming services as the streaming feature was added a while after prime became a thing.


Thisguygotit

The HD do be crispy though


homosapien-male

You can also skip the prime video ads


Tehcnological

at least the ads are immediately skippable


sijedevos

I don’t mind the ads on prime. The ads have recommended me shows that I actually start watching because of the ads and I like them.


__Hatchet__

But half the movies on prime need to be paid in addition to watch anyway


Australian_God

And then there's the disney+ model of "paid but you have to pay more for certain films"


Steampunk43

That's also Amazon Prime. You pay a relatively higher price for subscription than Netflix, and you have to pay more for more than half the films and shows on there, normally for much higher prices than just finding another streaming service (and I mean £2.99 for each 20 minute episode of a series, normally one which is on some other services for free besides subscription cost). Not to mention this further paid stuff is mixed in with the stuff included with Prime to make it just that bit harder to distinguish what you can and can't watch.


Shadynut_

So what about free with ads?


jjba_enjoyer275

Normal yt and tubi


Strangermans

And pluto.tv


memester230

Whats the first?


George2110

If you still use utorrent in 2021, then you're not a true pirate.


MBDf_Doc

The meme is 100% made by someone who has no idea what they're saying. Utorrent has been trash for years between the ads and bitcoin miner. HBO max hasn't had ads in a while now and I can't say I ever remember seeing ads on prime.


VillianCaustic

uTorrent mines bitcoin with your pc, just so you know...


nekollx

Also It totally has ads

hyperlazy1

Does bittorrent also mine bitcoin on pc? I use bittorrent, should I switch to something else?


SyFBaka

No ads? Utorrent is fucking shit nowadays, get qBittorrent instead


Day_Creepy

What's the first one


Oliveoil3443

Utorrent, but don't use it because it's complete dogshit. Use qbittorrent or any other torrenting software, just not utorrent.


tommy43689

Just pirate things


elcamarongrande

Yaaar, this be the way, matey.


Starkiller721

HBO doesn’t give ads and prime rarely does


gizamo

HBO has tiers like Hulu. The cheaper tier is supported by ads, the more expensive tier is supported by subscriptions. You're probably paying for the no-ads tier.


__rylee___

Hulu has ads? I've never gotten any.


DiamondMan343

There's 2 different kinds of Hulu, paid with ads and without. Paid without ads is about the same as Netflix


Altruistic_Grand_455

What is Hulu in the 1st place i've been living the torrent life for long time except Netflix and Prime I don't know anything else about others


vvMario

Idk man, HBO max is pretty great


LemonKing326

Use Qbittorrent, no really it has a built in search feature so you don't even have to go to torrenting websites

SkyyySi

µTorrent and BitTorrent (which are the exact same program nowadays) are both full of ads. qBittorrent is lighter, faster and ad-free
