Mr. Jason Perlow of ZDNet received an unpleasant surprise with his new $3,000 Samsung TV – ads! We already noted that budget TVs are ad-ridden. Apparently premium TVs are also ad-ridden. This is dark stuff. I wish I could reveal how I made my $350 TV (almost) ad free, but that is proprietary knowledge that does not involve not letting it connect to the internet. I’m getting a monitor or dumb TV next time I need one.
