How to Opt-Out interest-based ads on CTV Devices?
Opting out of interest-based advertising it totally optional and does not mean you will no longer see advertising on the content or apps. It means that we may not show you ads that have been tailored to your interests. We may block interest-based ads whenever possible but sometimes device settings or browser settings may prevent us to set opt- out configuration.
Below are instructions for using the advertising choice mechanisms provided by the most popular CTV devices:
- Amazon Fire TV
- Google Chromecast
- Apple TV
- Samsung Smart TV
Go to the menu of your device, find the “Settings” and press OK
Go to Privacy >> Advertising.
Check ON option “Limit ad tracking”
That’s all. You can go back to Home to enjoy your content.
Amazon Fire TV:
Go to the menu of your device, select Settings
Go to Preferences
Go to Preferences >> Advertising ID option where in you can opt-out of interest-based ads
Toggle the option ON or OFF according to your preferences. Then continue using the device as you normally do.
Please follow below steps to turn off Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra’s collection of usage data and crash reports.

It does not mean that you will no longer see advertising on the content or apps.
