I watch the PlutoTV and use the ad time to pee like in the old days. Kids don't know what it's like to be dropping a deuce and have to cut it off because the commercial is almost over.

It's the middle choice of ad-supported paid subscription that needs to go.  Either watch it free with ads, or pay for ad-free viewing.  Don't take my money, then say you've created an even more expensive ad-free tier, then start airing commercials on my paid plan.

Nobody wants more ads they are just willing to suffer through them if it saves them $10 a month.
