CBS TV Y&R online - adblock blocked!

For a long time I've watched CBS TV online, specificially, The Young and The Restless using AdBlock, and it was wonderful! Today when I launched an episode I received a message stating that the video was being blocked due an ad blocker and it would not play. I guess CBS wised up and figured out a way to detect AdBlock. I understand their point of view because their advertisers pay them to make the show to reach a potential customer. However, I really hope AdBlock can come up with a work-around to CBS's latest strategy. Thoughts?

    Hello Y&R Fan,

    You can always pause AdBlock or don't block any ads on the domain as temporary solution.
    This case needs to be forwarded to our developers so they can make a patch for it.

    Kind Regards,

    If you start it without the AdBlock and turn it back on after it starts, it will continue to block the ads.

    A quicker way would be to disable AdBlock on the website, by going to the AdBlock button and choosing "Don't run on pages on this domain".

    Hope this helps!
