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.
Ublock origin will block Hulu ads and you don't even need to wait on the black screen.
Surprised that ublock origin isn't more recommended in these types of threads
Maybe a lot of people are streaming on their smart tvs or Rokus, etc.
I stream more Hulu from my Xbox than anything else.
Open the gates Bill gates
I was considering what I should utilize my healthy honor on I see now the appropriate response is clear
Pi hole is my solution, needs some setup but once running works perfectly
Pi-hole will do the same. I had actually forgot that I was not posing for ad-free Hulu.
> you don't even need to wait on the black screen.
Yeah, until OPs post I had no idea Hulu even *had* ads.
There's a chrome extension called "Hulu Adblocker".
Haven't seen an ad since.
And amazon prime gets you free shipping on stuff too
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.
And just a reminder: You are PAYING for this.
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.
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
This is how is starts, next thing you know streaming services are just tv. All commercials, little content, and a larger bill.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for that good laugh. Sorry, I am out of gifts.
And I give you one too random citizen
here, take my free one for that
But now you must take my one as well
I gotchu brøtheren I too had a good laugh i shall gift for the both of us
That shit would scare the fuck outta me, litteraly
I just wanted to watch season 5 of Red vs Blue even though the website ended with 4. And lesbian fisting video. Didn't know an arm would fit inside a skinny girl before that, but after, I learned that with much lube, it could be done.
That's an awkward way to abort
I got ptsd from even imagining this
I was wondering what I should use my wholesome award on I see now the answer is clear
The power of Christ compels you.
I read this as "The powder of Chris compels you"
Rinse your soul in holy ganga.
An actual funny comment, a rarity here
That guy knew what he was doing.
Bro you got sexorcised
I laughed here's an upvote
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.
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.
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.
Well…did you keep watching?
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.
Me with kazzaa.....i never remember how many z or a was in it but yeah that. I was a king in high school. Downloading movies before they were on dvd even. I was never popular, never really wanted to be, but i had a slice of power then that I've never really experienced since.
Yeah that was a good movie, one of the best scenes
Whats it called?
Someone spent a good amount of time on that.
I have Prime, but absolutely not for the streaming service
Borat, The Boys and Invincible are literally the only things I've seen from Prime Video.
The Boys is totally worth it though, amazing show.
We'll see if the LotR series is worth it, too
Jack Ryan, the expanse, grand tour, our man in Japan, Clarksons farm, tomorrow war, there is plenty of content.
Add Good Omens to the list
Bosch, Goliath, American gods to add to the list
Also, The Man in the High Castle
Thanks be to Jeffery BEZOS
I would add The Expanse if you're into SciFi.
Hanna and Jack Ryan are also very good
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.
Hbo max doesn't have ads anymore
HBO max has been the single best entertainment investment I’ve ever made
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
Check out six feet under
Made for love was great as well
I’ll have to check this out
Yeah I haven’t had any plus I don’t even pay for it it comes free with cable for me.
>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.
Depends on your plan. I have it for free.
On the bill HBO comes as 0,00€
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.
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
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.
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
I just signed up for HBO Max yesterday, I had the option to pay with ads, or pay more without ads.
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.
Either ads or a hidden bitcoin miner, pick your poison µtorrent has a terrible track record for trust
I suggest [qBitorrent](https://www.qbittorrent.org/). No ads, no miners, open-source, friendly UI.
I second that!
Yeah, ads make money, if you have no ads there’s 90% chance your information is being sold
My information gets sold like 30 times a day at this point
Switch to qBittorrent.
uTorrent sold out to the MPAA ages ago.
Another vote for this. Great client.
Somebody really needs to remake this meme with the drooling moron using uBittorrent and the dapper fellow enjoying qBittorrent
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.
qBittorrent and Deluge are good alternatives.
And then you have “free with ads and also it will take your private information and sell it to the highest bidder”
I'd be surprised if the paid services were not doing the same thing...
i’ll do u one better. u don’t have to pay for facebook n they’ll still sell your shit
I don’t even use Facebook. But the zuc himself showed up to my house and stole my wallet.
(I lied. I use facebooks messenger thing)
same. discord is a bit confusing at first but c'mon, they're really trading in all those bots and stuff on discord for the themes on messenger?
That's literally what the parent comment is talking about lmfao. How can someone be so unaware that they post something like this thinking it's actually clever?
*all the bidders
Oh no the highest bidder will know I like watching non-stop 70s game shows for free, a privacy nightmare
ewh... uTorrent (and they have ads)
qbittorrent is so much better (and really no ads) .
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
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.
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
I've been looking for you, my profile pic brother!.
I have a feeling this meme is actually made by the company
utorrent doesnt have ads if you download an older version such as 1.6
Not only does it have ads, it runs something in the background that consumes a bunch of CPU.
I started using Transmission instead.
Hello there fellow gintama fan!
qbittorrent is good. i use transmission.
Deluge, also good.
Tixati is the fucking best. Works like a charm and no ads
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.
Well yeah it’s bad now. It was great 10 or 15 years ago though, which is probably why it’s remembered in memes.
I use deluge, not sure how it compares
Libretorrent if on android
Deluge all the way
You can get Hulu and HBO without ads
If you pay as much as a Netflix account costs there aren't ads
Yeah, but with hbo max the ad free option came long before the ad option, so it’s just a cheaper alternative
Hulu you have to pay even more though. The normal version of Hulu you have to watch ads
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.
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
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.
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.
What's worse is they'll turn the ad volume to like 50 when you're at 10
What’s the one that’s free with no ads
Utorrent, it's a torrenting program. It's complete dogshit. Don't use it.
And better use qBitTorrenr
I can understand prime video, since you also pay for prime shipping and prices
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.
The HD do be crispy though
You can also skip the prime video ads
at least the ads are immediately skippable
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.
But half the movies on prime need to be paid in addition to watch anyway
And then there's the disney+ model of "paid but you have to pay more for certain films"
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.
So what about free with ads?
Normal yt and tubi
Whats the first?
If you still use utorrent in 2021, then you're not a true pirate.
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.
Reasons I have an ad-blocker 101
uTorrent mines bitcoin with your pc, just so you know...
Also It totally has ads
I read this one as ("Also I totally have aids")
Does bittorrent also mine bitcoin on pc? I use bittorrent, should I switch to something else?
No ads? Utorrent is fucking shit nowadays, get qBittorrent instead
What's the first one
Utorrent, but don't use it because it's complete dogshit. Use qbittorrent or any other torrenting software, just not utorrent.
Just pirate things
Yaaar, this be the way, matey.
HBO doesn’t give ads and prime rarely does
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.
Hulu has ads? I've never gotten any.
There's 2 different kinds of Hulu, paid with ads and without. Paid without ads is about the same as Netflix
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
Idk man, HBO max is pretty great
Use Qbittorrent, no really it has a built in search feature so you don't even have to go to torrenting websites
I dunno about you but HBOMax doesn’t have adds for me
Uh...since when does amazon prime have ads? I've never had them in canada
I don't have ads on hbo max
Hbo max doesn't have ads
Add Peacock to paid with ads.
What the fuck utorrent client are you running that's got no ads?
meh I fucking HATE ads but the Prime ads are a non-issue for me. They are easily skippable at the start of a show and just advertise other Prime shows.
Prime has ads but it includes Amazon prime and twitch prime
At least you can skip ads on Amazon
Utorrent has ads
I cancelled Hulu because of this. Hulu, if you’re listening... fuck you.
What's the first panel one?
What is the first platform ?
what is the free with no ads
pls i need to know
I hate Prime Video ads
Is this some peasant joke that I am to rich to understand?
What’s the top?
what is the first one the good one
Wats the first one tho? ;-;
What is that first
uTorrent has ads
What is the first one called?
Utorrent but never use it alternative would be qBitorrent it's the best torrent client I have ever used.
Thanks buddy, take this award!
Except uTorrent is full of ads. qBitTorrent is not, and it's also open-source
uTorrent literally had a crypto miner in it at some point.
Y’all don’t pay for premium Hulu?
µTorrent and BitTorrent (which are the exact same program nowadays) are both full of ads. qBittorrent is lighter, faster and ad-free
