    Thanks for the updated list JJBL
    It’s really gotten out of hand with the movement of the ads, tired of seeing Lilly of AT&T spokes woman. I am dropping AT&T DIRECTV in less than a month and I am very happy. Anyone who says they can live with the ads or it doesn’t bother them is just lying to themselves and others. I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to satellite In the future. Signing out. The fact it took so many months for anyone to reply lately shows me not enough people are concerned about ads maybe you’re all too busy with COVID-19. I don’t know what the excuse but I’m done. Toukuss out! enjoy your ads y’all

    Why don't you just disconnect the box from the internet. I don't see any ads just the D* screen saver no internet connection.

    What? Lily is like the newer Tanya Memme!

    I don’t have ads when my ASUS router is set to block my 54 from the internet, no big deal there. When it’s unblocked, I don’t sit and stare at the TV waiting for ads.

    Many people got their shots now compared to last October when you last posted, so I don’t think Covid is really an issue here.

    A lot of people hit pause and go to the bathroom, then the ads come on, and then the ads stop when they come back and press ‘play’.

    For me, I think there’s a lot of other things in life to worry about, rather than ads on a screensaver. Now back to Lily. :)

    I don't like ads either, that is why I'll never connect the internet, are you seeing video ads or are they just static images? Video ads would be worse, video ads with audio would be the last straw.

    I've never seen anything but static images for the ads.

    I added these a couple months ago and they have been working. It stopped working a couple weeks ago or so, and then it's working again. Thanks very much for the info on this thread.

    Has this list been updated recently, or is this still a good starting point?

    I did remove a URL or two to get "On Demand" and the iPad/Android apps to work. I've been using the below list for a while now without any issues:
