    Default Kogan "Smart-TV", stopping Adds???

    Sorry if this is the wrong section. (I'm new here! Move it if you want )
    When using my Laptop, I found out that using the likes of 'AdBlock' not only stops general WebPage ads, but also cuts out the plethora
    of ads that spring up while watching YouTube Videos... However, using my Kogan Smart-TV (that I'm generally very happy with!), watching
    YouTube is great, always full-screen, and easy to search/find relevant videos etc. Is there a way (on that!), to bypass the constant
    ads that keep popping up??? Thanks... Glenn
    One small step for man... (but it wasn't me!!)

    Thank you for your reply... My Kogan 'Smart-TV' does not have that level of data access within network settings??
    Should I be doing this at the ROUTER level, that the TV is linked to via WIFI, or by some other means??

    I've noticed that I can (alternatively) link my SmartPhone to the TV via 'Casting'. Would this help, if my 'phone' has
    Youtube with 'AdBlock', before casting to the TV? The problem then being that I am viewing 'videos' through my phone's
    cellular network, as opposed to the Router's Broadband Link ?? (Sorry...)
