Its on NBCSN, they are putting short text advertising lines in the middle of the screen. Every time they do it I'm done. Some sports it may not be so bothersome, but it is watching snow skiing. Never seen advertising like this before and it is likely a trend. I changed the channel during the live finals of parallel slalom this morning.
Advertising is becoming overwhelmingly intrusive and has diminished my enjoyment of the few (very few) things I want to watch on television.
Several streaming platforms have gone this direction as well.
Fortunately, with the time I used to give electronic entertainment I am finding great satisfaction in using to be productive.
Yes, Para does appreciate humor.

And the network banners are getting worse too. I remember the years before networks had to intrude each and every screen .
I'm guessing Ad revenue is down, less viewers? Companies are cutting the amount they're advertising and/or media companies are having to sell more Ad time.

In fairness, I've been watching not on my television, but streamed through my cable system website. I don't know which layer of broadcasting is adding the ads. I was watching America's cup racing and got the same one line text advert right in the middle of the screen, I closed the stream and re entered and the ad was gone.
