    I complained about this to “support” a few days ago. A full screen ad before the home screen with the top 1/3 an ad and the bottom 1/3 ads.

    Straight up told them I will pick another manufacturer this weekend.

    I’m burned out on protecting myself from smart devices. Maybe just a dumb screen this round.

    Edit: I have every single privacy setting set to off, but some update added a new category and defaults to on. Don’t know how long Amazon has been spying on me or what they took.

    My device has autoplay off already. It may have stopped a full screen video ad, but there is a full screen picture ad instead.

      Why would support care, this is clearly a feature not a bug. Did you at least demand a refund on the device?

        They didn’t whatsoever. I expected that. They said they sent my complaint through so I hope I tickled a 0 into a 1 somewhere in their sea of data, but I don’t expect results.

        Oh yeah, they followed up with an offer to buy a new TV. Like, that was a little cold there, dude.
