SeeSaw Ad-Free For Just 1p

We all know that adverts are a necessary evil and if we could get rid of them while watching television we would. This is something SeeSaw has obviously spotted and why it offered its ad-free NonStop service recently. And this weekend it is trying to get people to see exactly how good it is by offering the service for just 1p.

The standard price of the service is £2.99 per month so a huge price cut down to 1p will inevitably entice some viewers who were thinking about using the service but put off by the price. NonStop is a feature on the online TV service that lets users switch off the ads around their free ad-funded content, for a small monthly fee.

So instead of seeing ads before your re-runs of Come Dine With Me or Emergency Bikers you will get unadulterated viewing pleasure to enjoy. This offer of 1p is only open from noon today until noon on Monday, December 13. If you really, really don’t want to see those ads, then you can visit its website here.

SeeSaw seems to be very worried about viewers getting annoyed at the ads they see on the site as a couple of weeks ago, it launched Ad Selector. This allows viewers to choose from three separate adverts prior to the beginning of the chosen programme. Having seen this system work in the US already, SeeSaw have partnered with technology company Brainient to bring this to UK users.

For £20 a month in cash I can help with that. Totally legit, I swear.

Adverts around the articles is fine, but advertising in the articles is too much. Please stop it.

The ads are so bad now that they noticeably affect the performace of my browser, this on a newish Core-i7 machine. Unless I deploy AdBlocker the ads make scrolling very jerky in TR. On the Aldi website my browser gums up completely, too busy processing all the flash ads. Seriously, it won't even let me browse away from the Aldi homepage into the rest of their site - talk about shooting yourself in the foot.


And now on TR I see an ad acually come across the screen between me and what I a trying to read - no, really, the ad pans across INFRONT of the TR editorial material. Madness. I have no compunction in using AdBlocker. I hear your plea that you need ads to support the site, but not to sink it!

(Plays devils advocate) But aren't a lot of news stories just advertising dressed up as news. Like product launches about gadgets we can spend our money on in the months to come? Or programs we can download. Giving them & their companies free exposure. It's just slightly more obvious in this case.





@Hugo - reading the subtext, are you saying that TR don't pay you enough ;)

@Martin - I was having the same problems with the recent HP printer, (moves with your scrollbar) advert. Funnily enough I only got jerky scrolling with Firefox not Chrome. But, yeah, if you're going to roll ads out, then make sure they work on the majority of browsers.

I too hate the mouseover, auto expand ads. Grr. Put them out of the way, or lose footfall.

If you have problems with the adverts (but not just "I don't like them) email us the details and we can deal with it - the more feedback we can supply the more likely those developing the as will sort them out. We have to use the site too and I can assure you we're just as vocal about bad advertising as you.





And Pbryanw, I couldn't possibly say that.
