Are now constantly present. One goes away to be replaced by another. Constantly. I know ya gotta make a buck, but this really raises the irritation level.

Agreed. I came to this folder to start the same conversation. I understand it happening when I'm not logged in, but when I am logged in... I'm logged in. I'm a member. Can this change be reversed, or at least the frequency of the ads majorly reduced? It's incessant.

Huh. I haven't seen anything like this.

It will be interesting to see what the owners say about it.

@Ronald Epstein @Kevin Collins @Adam Gregorich @Dave Upton

It only hits me on my phone, where the browser isn't as secured and restricted as on my laptop.

It's a small pop up video that comes up in the lower right corner. After I close it, it stays gone while I'm on a page, but does come back after clicking on a new link.

It’s not happening with paid members. Probably a connection.

I had many of these on the mobile version of Chrome while on vacation. The pop-up videos and some pop-up static ads.

Now that I'm home, I see the pop-up videos on Firefox desktop, as well.

I'm still seeing them on Android, running off the standard Samsung browser. They don't seem to show up in the Physical Media folder, which is my HTF bookmark, but going into the Blu-ray and UHD subfolder from there will trigger one. Strange.

Edit: it looks like it's not a problem now. Will report back if it changes. Thanks guys!
