Streaming Services and Ads

As more and more services are becoming aware of adblock software, it is common for them to detect this and ask you to disable your adblock, and replace the ad with a timer, or sometimes prevent you from taking advantage of features on that sight. I was wondering if adblock could introduce some kind of a "streaming mode" that won't block certain ads in commonly used websites, such as pandora and hulu.

    It's called "Don't run AdBlock on this page"

    or if you prefer, add these site-whitelist rules to your Custom Filters:



    However, we also try to work around adblock-detection; you might want to subscribe to the Adblock Warning Removal List or to Reek's "Anti-Adblock Killer" (which works in conjunction with a UserScript).

    I'm aware of don't Run and exception pages, however adblock still works great for blocking most ads without consequence on these pages. Will check out the other stuff though!
