I have noticed this more and more in the last few months, and it really gets on my nerves. When you press pause on a show on any streaming service... HBO Max, Paramount Plus, Hulu, etc... there is an ad on the screen superimposed over the paused image. Normally, it's paused because I have to go to the bathroom or clean the dishes because my wife and I will watch stuff while we eat. But there are times when I want to take a closer look at a paused image for a detail... only to find a damned ad get in the way! And I am NOT going to pay more for ad free... they get enough money already.
