IMDB ads not blocked

I have the latest version of brave etc, but this has been going on for about 2 months.

Never used to see this ad.

It takes up 1/3 screen on many devices as it is huge at at the top of the page.

Answering the questions below, but this isn’t really relevant as it affects everyone as other posts show such as this one from last month Still getting ads on Brave. Please fix

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)?
Latest Brave (Version 1.58.131 Chromium: 117.0.5938.92) & Latest Windows 10

Is your Brave Rewards Profile currently verified? (yes/no)

What date did you connect a your Brave Rewards Profile?
IDK, years ago

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?

Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)

Are you in a supported region (see here for list of supported regions)?

Thank you for reporting and thank you for filling out the full template even though you didn’t want to :pray:

cc @fanboynz on this to get this resolved asap

Just a FYI, you’re kind of right in that it’s not relevant because it was placed in the wrong category. You did Brave Rewards → Brave Ads. This is the ads Brave shows you and you earn BAT from viewing.

Ads on websites like you’re seeing would be Browser Support → Ad-Blocking, or Ad-Blocking

If you had done it on that category, the template would have been below, which I think you’d agree is a bit more relevant. Though they honestly should revamp that template too, as their template is more for web compatibility than it is for ads blocking:

Description of the issue:

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)

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):

Can you check Brave Nightly build. we rolled out some fixes with standard shields @ukheather
