There are man browser extensions that will block ads in YouTube and those annoying bank and insurance ads from TVNZ on demand. Pity because they don't last long yet the advertisers will try to annoy everyone with the volume.

youtube gives me american ads for some strange reason, i have customized what kind of ads it shows me, maybe there's just no new zealand ads that match my options. not on a vpn either.

It should be illegal for them to o that, if it's not already...

Adblock+ blocks pre roll ads on Youtube.
