  • Anybody know how to stop those damn annoying banner ads from popping up at the bottom screen. Using IPhone so not sure can put in malware?

    • I wish I knew. Obviously Tvline needs to advertise to make money, but that persistant pop-up banner is really intrusive and makes for an unpleasant mobile browsing experience. Banner ads on the top and bottom of the page? Fine. Layer ads? Fine. But that pop-up banner perpetually obscuring the bottom of your screen and needing to be closed every time you load a new article is supremely irritating.

      I hope someone on staff is paying attention.
