In my opinion it's the best free steaming services I've came across so far.might be worth a try for those that are interested.
    Sorry - I can't watch commercials. My body is allergic to them and it breaks out in hives if they come on.

    Then you are missing the commercial that will sell you the treatment for that.*

    I sometimes watch commercials, but I don't listen to them. I usually mute them and check email on my phone. Often I go to the fridge to find myself a refreshing beverage.*

    Is it Peacock that has all of its commercials at the start? I like that. That way I can ignore all of them at once.

    As an odd note, my kids (9 and 4), have grown up overseas and with streaming, so they aren't used to commercials, but get excited when one comes on(in Hulu usually)

    It depends. The movies are all at the beginning but the shows vary. Poker Face had two maybe three commercial breaks within the show. There is also a static ad if you pause anything.

    I tried an OTC medication called Commercial Lube but they still hurt going in.

    That will end when they discover YouTube. There's nothing I hate more than bot-inserted ads. They are stupidly based just one time and interrupt sentences or otherwise completely screw up the actual content, rather than just being a relatively civilized break you have to tolerate.

    I think we are looking at a future where it becomes prohibitively expensive to avoid them. Ad-supported viewers make companies more money than ad-free ones. Companies are going to continue to raise the price for the ad free tier until it hits equilibrium. Newer streaming shows are already being designed for breakpoints that ads can be inserted like traditional TV. A lot of show creators donít like it and have be vocal about it.
