Netflix is running ads, which it insists aren’t ads

Yet another basically user-friendly firm gets too big for its britches. Well, guess what, Netflix: the pirate scene is thriving, and it's totally ad-free. I don't watch ads, I don't.

Remember when DVD producers thought it would be profitable to start your DVD with 3 or 4 non-skippable previews etc. Then it got worse. Disney films are the absolute worst: before your kid gets to watch Aladdin you've got something like 10 other blurbs to get through.

Screw you, big media. I hope you and your adverts all choke on a bag of dicks.

To be fair, I have no issue with watching trailers for new shows. It's a good way to keep up to date on what's coming out. I do think the best way to approach it is to have the trailer at the end of a show. That way if you've already seen it you can just start the next episode, if you're interested you can watch it, and it's not interrupting whatever you're currently watching. I don't like the idea of having the trailers at the beginning, there's only so many times I could see a trailer for Dare Devil before I'd get tired of it. And seeing as my wife and I watched six episodes of Glee yesterday, I'd get sick of it really quick.
