On my Apple TV, I’ll get ads once in a while. Though these ads are not frequent, they annoy me the most when I stream my favorite movie. Then, I explored the Apple TV’s Settings menu to minimize or block these ads completely. Unfortunately, there is no built-in feature to block ads on Apple TV. But, I disabled the Limit Ad Tracking feature to get fewer targeted ads.

The Limit Ad Tracking feature will show less targeted ads on your Apple TV. If you want to limit the ads, you can turn on this feature. Follow the steps mentioned here to enable the Limit Ad Tracking feature.

How to Block YouTube Ads on Apple TV

The only way to block YouTube ads is to buy the YouTube Premium. If you are using any third-party ad-blocker apps on your Apple TV, you will get a warning message like the one mentioned here.
