...Why it matters: Ad buyers expect the 2022 midterm elections to be the first campaign cycle where connected television (CTV) ads will take a meaningful market share of political spend, in part due to the fact that cookies are being scrapped....

There are already too many ads on internet tv, without adding the political onslaught to it.

I normally mute them all. I've gotten really really tired of just how many are showing up, not to mention the steady repeat of them. Some channels that are really heavy on the ads, I won't watch due to how many there are.

I inadvertently went skiing in Vermont one time during primary season in neighboring New Hampshire. It was enough to make you never want to vote again or watch TV again.

@#3 ... It was enough to make you never want to vote again or watch TV again. ...

Funny thing... back in a prior life, I worked in the market research and advertising industry. The people who place those all those ads are really of the opinion that the viewers really want to see advertisements.

Every once in a while I'll see an interview or discussion with advertising people, and they still seem to hold the opinion that the viewers really want to be bombarded with all those advertisements.

I also found out The One Question You Do Not Ask When You Work In The Advertising Industry: does anyone know for sure if advertisements work?

Something I've done for a while, is when I go to a store, if that product has bothered me with ads since the last time I was in, I look for another product. If they can afford to advertise, it's not for free. The cost is hidden in the price of the product. You get nothing extra for the price increase, other than the aggravation you had with the commercial.

I wished others did that. If enough people did that so that sales dropped, they might get a hint.

One of the many things I love about YouTube TV is that they don't air local commercials. Instead, they play pleasant music during the one or two that are airing on local channels. It's refreshing not to have to listen to endless commercials for car dealerships, personal injury lawyers, and political candidates during election season too.
