When I took the ad blocker off HSN, I had all kinds of problems.
I took my ad blocker off, which is Ghostery, so I could watch the St. Patricks Day Parade in Ireland on RTE. I came back to play games and remembered why I had it on, a lot of ads flashing, changing and rolling on both sides of the game, very irritating! I tried several different games that people have complained about and I had major problems, loading, freezing, one game I was playing just turned itself off in the middle. I turned Ghostery back on and everything worked again.
I know HSN wants us to keep the ad blockers off so we can see their ads but If I can’t block them I would not play here. I have trouble with my eyes and it is hard for me to focus when all that is going on. Your whole website is an ad, Do you really need to do this around the games?
I occasionally ask questions or complain about a problem with a game even though, I see most of the comments and questions being ignored. You got to the blue screen on the puzzle pretty quick. It feels like the other problems are being ignored because The techs know it is the ads. There have been a lot of comments about the ads causing problems. If they Really can not figure it out – for months, maybe HSN needs some better techs to work on it.
Players, If you turn on or install an ad blocker, I would like to know what it did for you.
I installed AdGuard both on my computer an don my cell phone. For a small price you can get a lifetime price on both. This will keep all ads off your computer and cell phones. I can now play games without all the ads on the computer.. I can go on web pages without all the extra ads popping up on and across the pages and across my phone. There is peace of mind. There are many other options with this. blocks trackers, ads, threats, browsing, parental control. has a lot of additional features on this blocker and well worth the money. I have not had any issues with it. There are a few websites if you want to go on, it will ask you to disable the program while viewing it or add it to your approval website. Hope this will help
Thank you Judiwonder. What I was wanting to know was, do you have a problem playing games here, with your ad blocker on? I have been very happy with Ghostery as well, and it is free. It does the things you mention but I don’t know what else. I don’t need anything else. I have been using it for years with no problems.
