I've just had a box come up while watching itv saying they are going to prevent viewers using adblock from viewing their programmes :-{

    This is where I am.
    Some of the solutions date back to 2010 and are two complex for me to apply.
    I have tried these but to no avail
    What we need is a simple step by step guide so that anyone can follow the instructions.
    I personally use Chrome and now have AdBlock 2.6.10 installed with 1.6 disabled

    Thanks for the report, I've passed it on to our developers who may fix it!

    If you have any experience in developing Chrome extensions in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, and you want to contribute, patches from the code at are welcome!

    I just had the same thing come up just so you know. They're talking about an "advance warning" before putting it into place.

    Yes it is advance warning that they are going to "prevent
    viewers who are using an ad blocker from watching our programmes."
    My guess is itv has software searching for all ad block users.

    Hopefully the developers may be able to fix it - they are working on it :-}

    I get the adblock message WITHOUT udsing an adblocker........

    Could it be Mediahint that does it?

    Any foreign ITV users having the same experience?
