Brave won't block ads on

Description of the issue:

Brave browser won’t block ads on

Exact URL of the website in question:


Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)


Even when when “aggressively block trackers & ads” is set, it won’t block the ads.
Not even Adblockplus is able to.
Not even protonvpn ad blocking is effective.

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?


Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):


Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?


Brave version (check About Brave):

Version 1.46.144 Chromium: 108.0.5359.128 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Windows 10 x64

@TDK I think this a commercial from the content provider. Brave does not block commercials. The only way to not see commercials is to subscribe to any commercial free subscription service the provider may have.

Then this is something youtube will implement eventually. sad times.

Brave’s feature to Block ads are its selling point! what you mean it dont?!?!

That’s what i thought. i’m not too convinced that it’s something can’t be done.

Brave blocks many type ads, 3rd party ads, pop-up ads, overlaid ads, plus but they do not block commercial ads for copyrighted, paywalled content. Maybe this has changed. You could tag Brave support and ask for clarification.

Posting a link that may help differentiate between the types of ads Brave does and doesn’t block. Again, maybe this has changed. I am not aware of any changes but I haven’t been as active recently as in the past.

Looking into it, unsure if its blockable still or not

@fanboynz Please clarify what you mean when you say “unsure if its blockable still or not”. Do you mean, if possible, Brave will block ads (commercials) from providers of cable/network TV content accessible online? So basically, are you saying Brave will, or will try, to block ads from any content provider (no exceptions) even if the content is paywalled?

Bump up for visibility.
