Streaming TV and movies on demand without ads

If you watch TV on your Macbook or iMac here’s a great tip. I’m not sure what happens in the rest of the world, but in Australia when you stream TV on demand from stations like channel 10 or SBS you get between 30 seconds and 2 minutes of ads every 10 minutes or so. The same happens if you watch TV on demand via Apple TV.

But you can avoid those ads! If you watch TV on demand using the Chrome browser in OS X with the ‘Ad Block’ plug-in enabled, all the ads disappear!  It completely skips all the ads and just plays the content.

Apple TV – no audio out!

Apple TV

I’m a great fan of the Apple TV so I’ve been waiting a while for the release of the new model. The day it arrived I went to the Apple store but just as I was about to add one to my cart, I had to choose between a 32GB or  64GB model. (Apple’s first mistake. This is way over complicating things).  So I went to check out the tech specs and it was there that I noticed something so stupid that it is giving me flashbacks of  1985-97 apple years…  The Apple TV has no audio out.  No I am not making this up. The new Apple TV has no audio output.  No line out. No optical out. The audio signal comes only on the HDMI cable to your TV.
