Annoyed with the unsolicited Ads suddenly appearing on your brand new LG C1 OLED TV? You should be...

Rest assured, there are 3 main methods to stop this uninvited annoyance.

#1 - The first and rather drastic measure is to NOT connect your TV to the internet.
This is a sure-fire way to ensure you do not get any intrusive ads, however you also lose functionality that you paid for.
NB! ** If you opt for this method, just ensure you connect to the internet every so often to make sure you have the latest firmware installed.

#2 - Instead of not connecting the TV to the Internet and losing some functionality that you paid for, you could also block the ads at the router:

LG device owners should block the following addresses at the router:

ngfts.lge.com
us.ad.lgsmartad.com
lgad.cjpowercast.com
yieldmanager.edgesuite.net
us.info.lgsmartad.com

In your router config it should be by the firewall section for URL Filter or Block List

The same can be done for other TV's, like Samsung:
Here are more Samsung URLs to add to the block list since everyone has a different model Tv

www.samsungotn.net

www.samsungrm.net

samsungads.com

www.samsung.net/ads


#3 - If you can’t block addresses at the router (most can, but not all), try using an ad-blocking bit of software like Pi-hole on a Raspberry Pi.

*Edit: Fixed URL for only blocking subdomain on edgesuite.net known to serve ads.

Cheeky swine - this should not be allowed - do the ads appear anytime?
