Permanently Eliminate YouTube Ads on Android TV
Permanently Eliminate YouTube Ads on Android TV – Watching unskippable ads before playing a YouTube video can be incredibly annoying. Over the years, Google has significantly increased the volume of ads on YouTube, which has impacted the viewing experience for many users. Some users resort to using universal adblockers on their web browsers, but these adblockers may not be available for other devices. In this article, we will show you how to block YouTube Ads on your Android TV permanently.
Use a Third-Party App (SmartTubeNext)
Depending on your Smart TV’s platform (Fire TV, Xiaomi TV Stick, and other streaming boxes), you may have access to a specialized third-party app that eliminates annoying ads from YouTube. SmartTubeNext is a universal Smart TV app that works on most major platforms like Android TV/Google TV, NVIDIA Shield, Fire TV, Android-based TV boxes, and more. You can download this application from its GitHub page. After downloading, you will need to sideload the app on your TV. To learn how to sideload an app on your Smart TV, read this article. Once the app is installed on your TV, launch it and sign in using your Google Account. Although it has a slightly different interface than YouTube, you will quickly get the hang of it. SmartTubeNext not only blocks the unskippable ads on YouTube videos but also skips past the ‘sponsored content’ section. Additionally, it can perform the same function while watching videos in picture-in-picture mode.
