block ads peacock
Hey guys, it's Adam here and this is my new channel. I'll be talking about technology, gadgets, and more. English is my second language, so go easy on me. Today, I want to discuss the annoyance of ads on smart TVs. Every time you try to watch something, you're bombarded with ads. You can't even rewind or do anything without seeing a few ads. But fear not, there's a simple way to stop this madness. All you need is your TV remote and internet access. Let me show you how.
- Ads are everywhere on smart TVs.
- It's frustrating to have to watch ads before you can watch your favorite shows.
- I'll show you a simple solution to avoid these ads.
So, I'm opening up my smart TV and trying to watch something on demand. Let's go with American Dad on ITV Hub. Let's see what happens.
- Watching American Dad:
- Press play.
- First, the ITV logo appears, which is normal.
- But then, the first commercial pops up.
- Stopwatch shows the time wasted on ads.
- Second ad appears, already getting bored.
- I decide to have some coffee during the ads.
- Third ad plays, still bored.
- I wonder if I can sell this coffee.
- Already wasted a minute on ads.
- More ads keep playing, getting frustrating.
- What do you think of this game? Comment below.
- Finally, the show starts after six ads in two minutes.
Just imagine, you choose your favorite show, hit play, and you're bombarded with six ads. And this is just the beginning, there will be more ads in the middle of the show. Let me show you another example with Real Housewives on ITV Hub.
- Trying to watch Real Housewives:
- ITV logo appears again.
- Same commercial plays, no mercy.
- I decide to go elsewhere, can't handle it.
Now, let me show you how to stop these ads. It's quite easy, just follow these steps.
- How to Stop Ads on Smart TV:
- Go to settings on your TV.
- Look for network settings.
- If using Wi-Fi, go to Wi-Fi settings. If using LAN, go to advanced settings.
- Edit DNS server settings.
- Change DNS server to 220.127.116.11 (check video description).
- DNS server acts as a blacklist for ads.
- Press connect and double-check settings.
Now, let's go back to ITV Hub and try watching American Dad again. No ads this time!
- Watching American Dad without ads:
- Press play.
- No ads at the beginning or in the middle.
- Enjoy the show uninterrupted.
There is one downside, though. You won't be able to rewind or pause your video. But if you hate ads like me, it's a small sacrifice to make. Remember, you can use any DNS server you want. Just do a quick Google search for famous DNS servers for ad-blocking.
- Ads on smart TVs can be annoying.
- Changing DNS server can block ads.
- You may lose the ability to rewind or pause, but it's worth it.
- Spend a few minutes researching different DNS servers for ad-blocking.

BEST EDGE AD BLOCKER 🛑 HOW TO BLOCK ADS ON MICROSOFT EDGE 🔥 BEST AD BLOCKER EXTENSION
Hello everyone, my name is Chris and welcome to the channel. In this video, we are going to take a look at how you can block ads on Microsoft Edge browser. So, we want to install an extension that can help us browse with as few ads as possible and also maybe block some ads from YouTube. But before we jump into that, let's hear a quick word from our sponsor, Cloud Swap. Close Up is a service that helps you copy files from one cloud provider to another. So, let's get into that segment and talk to you in a bit.
Today's video is sponsored by Close Up. Close Up is an online service tool that can help you transfer files from one cloud provider to another. For example, if you have your files hosted on OneDrive and you wish to switch to Google Drive, that's no problem. It's all done in three easy steps. You need to select the folders and files that you wish to transfer, choose the destination where you want them to be copied, and that's it. Simply click start and your files will be copied to the new cloud provider. For more information, please check the link in the description below and register for free to start migrating or transferring your files.
Cool, okay, let's get started installing an ad blocker on Microsoft Edge browser. First things first, we have to open Edge, of course. So, open your Edge browser and what I want you to do is go ahead and click on the three dotted menu on the top right-hand side and look for extensions. We have the extensions option here, click on it. Now, this page shows you all the instant extensions that you currently have installed on your browser. I have none, so what I want to do is click on Get extensions from Microsoft Edge. Click on this blue button here and you'll get redirected to Microsoft Edge's add-ons page where you can look through all the extensions that are available for the Edge browser.
Of course, I have some most popular ones here, but for the sake of this example, because I want to show you how you can search for other extensions as well, I will go ahead and search for maybe a free ad blocker. Click enter and you will get a list of 326 extensions that match these keywords. Of course, you can look through it. One thing I want you to pay attention to is maybe the rating. It's important, of course. For example, this one has a 5 out of 5 stars rating and also 9 ratings. But I also want you to look at this number here. 1000+ users are using this extension.
The extension that I'm going to recommend today has no affiliation to this extension. I just personally use it. I find it to be one of the best lightweight extensions. It works like a charm. I've been using it for more than five years now and I use it on all my browsers. It's called Ad Blocker Plus. In this case, a free ad blocker. So, let's click on it. You see here, almost 5 stars from 643 reviews and almost more than 5 million users are using this. Perfect. In order for you to add the extension to Microsoft Edge, click on Get this button here and you'll get a pop-up with a few things that you have to pay attention to.
Edge is mentioning that by adding this ad blocker extension, this extension can read and change all your data on the websites you visit or display notifications. Now, in order for an extension, and this is not only for this specific extension, but in order for an extension to block the ads, they have to crawl through the website that you are browsing in order to determine if there are some trackers on it, if there are some pop-ups, if there is an ad. So, they can differentiate from the content that you have to watch and also the ads that they have to block, right? I'm going to click on Yes, I understand this and I'm going to add the extension. I'm going to add this extension and you can see here the extension was added to Microsoft Edge. That's the icon and now the ad blocker is being installed.
Cool. They also have a donation system and you can donate to the developers to keep maintaining the extensions if you wish, if you enjoy this. So, let's go ahead and test it. I'm going to open CNN, that's a popular website. As you can see here, on the top right of the extension, you have the number four here. If you click on the icon here, it will show you that, Hey, we've blocked four ads or items on this page. That's really cool. You will see numbers with double-digit numbers here that have a lot of trackers and yeah, I encourage you to keep an eye on your favorite websites and how many things they have behind the scenes, let's put it like that.
Now, there are some websites that have a detection system for ad blockers and they will not let you see the content until you disable the ad blocker. If you wish to do that, that's very simple with this extension. Just toggle this button here and just refresh the page. As you can see, now the extension is grayed out and you will see all the ads on the specific website. If you want to toggle it again, click again, click refresh and you're good to go.
So, if you find this useful, please make sure you give me a thumbs up. That really helps this video and the overall channel. If you like the content on this channel with this type of tips and tricks on anything related to IT, please make sure you subscribe. Thank you again for watching and talk to you in the next one. Bye!
Block ALL ads with this…(and speed up your internet)
Alright, let's get this started. I'm gonna show you how to get rid of all those annoying ads. And we're not just talking about a simple browser extension here. We're gonna block them at the source and protect your entire network, your whole house, and even your family from these ads. It's time to take control with Agar.
But hold on a second, let me deal with this spider. No, I missed him. He's gone now. Anyway, back to business. You see, some ads are just too awesome to block, like this one right here. Go ahead, try blocking it. You can't. It's pro TV and it's just too awesome. I mean, I'm Captain Agar and even I can't block it. It's that good. But don't worry, we'll find a way to handle it.
So let's talk about what we're gonna do. We're gonna install a guard in your home network. And this guard will block all those ads. I'll even show you how to install it on a Raspberry Pi. Wait, do I have one? Looks like I'll have to borrow one from the cluster. Don't worry, I'll make it work.
Oh, and did I mention you can also install it on a cloud machine? That way, you can share it with your friends and family and protect everyone. It's pretty cool, right? And if you're into Docker, I'll show you how to install it there too. Docker can go anywhere, so you have no excuses. You can install it wherever you want. Raspberry Pi, cloud, Docker, you name it.
But before we can block those ads, we need to understand how they work. It's pretty crazy, actually. Let me show you. I'll fire up Wire Shark and start a trace. I'll filter off DNS and go to cnet.com. Take a look at all these DNS requests. We're not just asking for cnet.com, but also adserver.com and adsiloveads.com. And guess what? Our DNS server responds with the IP addresses of those ad servers, and that's how the ads pop up. But what if we had a DNS server that didn't respond to those requests? What if it just threw them into a black hole? That's what Agar does. When our browser asks for an ad, Agar responds with nonsense. And because we can't reach the ad server, the ad doesn't load. It's as simple as that.
Now, blocking ads is great, but that's not the only reason you should use Agar. There's also security and privacy to consider. Right now, if you're not using your own DNS server, your internet service provider is watching everything you do. They know every website you visit. But with Agar, you can take back your privacy. And guess what? You can also control what people access on your network. You can block certain websites for your kids, for example. It's all about taking control.
So now that you're sold on Agar, let's set it up. It's actually pretty quick and easy. We'll start with Mac and Linux first, including the Raspberry Pi. If you have a fresh Raspberry Pi, you can do a headless install. No need for a monitor or keyboard, just the Pi itself, an SD card, and a power cable. Setting up a Raspberry Pi is a breeze. Just follow the steps I'll provide below and you'll be good to go.
If you prefer using a cloud provider, that's fine too. Choose your favorite cloud provider and follow the same commands. The process is pretty much the same regardless of the operating system. Just make sure to update your system first, copy and paste the commands I'll provide, and let the magic happen.
Once Agar is installed and running, you can access the GUI by going to the provided address and port. From there, you can customize your settings and take full control of your network. It's that simple.
So, are you ready to kick those ads to the curb? Get your coffee ready, because we're about to make it happen with Agar.
