I have got rid of my cable TV just a few weeks ago. The experience so far was not too bad and sometimes we watch some TV show on the TV station websites. The bad thing is that CTV (http://www.ctv.ca) do not have many adertisers opting for online ads and by the time you are finished watching one show you have seen the same ad 5 times. Try watching a couple of episodes in a row and you are brainwashed into remembering that ad by heart and hating the company who put that ad up till the end of your life.

So I did a bit of digging in the javascript code used on their website and it transpires that you can disable the ads just by adding a cookie NoAd=1.

You just need to paste the following string into your browser’s URL bar while on CTV webesite
javascript:document.cookie=”NoAd=1;expires=Sun, 08 Sep 2013 20:27:28 GMT”
