Google TV ads get even worse, now promoting cars
Nobody signed up for living room billboards
Advertising takes many forms, and some of them are acceptable, but most are ugly and unwanted. Even the best streaming devices carry operating system-level ads. We don’t mind seeing promoted content like movies and TV shows, even if they aren’t tailored to our watch history. But when the same space is used for advertising physical products, the TV resembles a billboard you willingly paid for. Ads on Google TV caught our attention late in January, but they only seem to grow worse as time passes.
