@pinto were the ads for other Stack TV programs or were they general ads generated by Amazon's ad platform.

@Dr.Dave Well another day brings another change to the service.

Yesterday, general 15 sec ads at the beginning of on demand shows. Gone!!

A 30 mins show will have 3 breaks inserted during the program but nothing at the start other than the standard rating.. G, PG etc., a 60 min show up to 5. Breaks are now 30 seconds and promote other shows on other channels and the Global network. You can pause during the break, but not FF or REW.

This is both on the smart tv and through the Nvidia Shield.

If they keep this format, the cable box will go back and I will hook the antenna back up

Ads in Prime? Or the new sub-channels?

Are these subscription services?

Chatting about the Stack TV service (Corus) now on Prime, both live and on demand channels. Think it's 13.99/month. Trying the free trial right now to see what it is like.

Stack TV is $12.99/month for 12 Corus channels.

@pinto the new ad load sounds the same as the On Demand when you subscribe through a TV provider - a short promo in place of the regular commercial break.

They want $12.99/month and they show adds/promos. That's got to be the worst value in an OTT service ever. I can't see many cord cutters jumping on this package. It's not like they have much in the way of 'must see TV' either. Bell/Crave grabs most of that.

I see there is two live channels missing from Hollywood Suite. The 80’s & 90’s channels are gone.

Now down to just the 70’s channel. The other three are gone off the Prime app on Apple TV. They are all still there on the app through my phone however. I’ll probably just cancel Hollywood Suite before the free month is up.
