Thursday, Feb 12th, at 7:05pm on 14 HDOM2 (Omni 2) the same "ROGERS IS THE FASTEST INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER" pop up banner appeared when watching Two and a Half Men. I will start by calling customer service to complain and I will eventually cancel my TV service if nothing is done about it.
Does anyone who we can complain to about this issue? Last time I talked to a Rogers representative she did not know what I was talking about but suggested the individual networks broadcasting the banner ads are responsible. She told me to call an advertising standards entity in Toronto, which I did, but no one returned my call. I tried to call the crtc but could find no number. Help would be appreciated!
Complain to the networks that place the ads - see the post above yours. This has nothing to do with Rogers, unless they're the owner of the particular channel in question.
I hate them too, especially when they hinder CC, but your anger should be directed at the channel, not the service provider. The provider like Rogers, Bell, Cogeco, Shaw, etc. simply passes what they get.
The problem does lie with the provider such as BELL since they own the channel that the banner ad is on such as CTV?
@paulaclaude123: That's what I said in post 25 above. Since this is a Rogers forum, you'd have a complaint if it's a Rogers Channel, but again, I suggest you contact the "broadcaster" directly, since you're unlikely to get much satisfaction in this forum. The purpose of this forum is primarily peer-to-peer assistance. Knowing where to complain (who to complain to) is more important than the complaining.
Here's a link to the Rogers TV Channels:
Will edge ad block, block those annoying and extremely repetitive alcohol commercials during online show streaming on let's say ctv's show streams? I can probably quote word for word the captain Morgan and the Bailey's commercials word for word with zero help. Sometimes the one commercial plays 3 times in a row, I've watched one ep of B&B and the entire commercial line up was solely the Bailey's one every single commercial during that single ep was the repeated Bailey's one. My wife is deaf so I'm getting pretty annoyed with those overlaying ads as well. She neeeeds to read those captions, but when an ad comes she's discriminated right out of her shows because some inconsiderate fully hearing advertising manager wants to earn his buck. I think we can include discrimination in this. Deaf people require closed captions and rogers and bell and whoever else puts those ads on top of the captions needs to have their head examined and demoted for not thinking of everyone who watches. RUDE at finest. Let's make an uproar and we both give all y'all permission to reference us and my wife's hearing impairment to get the fight going and damned hard, because ppl freak out big time when companies do not look out for their disabled customers 😉 let's do this!!!!!
I normally dont run CC... but on a cable box, i thought the CC was an overlay itself, which happens at the box end.. so i would think that it should go OVER the banner adds at the bottom of the show, as they are done from the feed side.
Same would go though for if streaming online.. if the add is pushed from the STREAM side.. then no nothing would block it.
Say compared to youtube.. which pushes them out as an overlay on the video, it might block that.
