“The Times Of India” No Longer Opens If You Have Ad-Blockers Because It's Composed Mostly Of Ads

*smh*

Posted on

If there's one major criticism that The Times Of India has constantly faced, it's the sheer quantity of ads it tries to sneak in along with the news.

What should be PAGE ONE in any respectable newspaper is actually PAGE NINE in today's Times of India (Delhi edition).

Earlier today, it went a step further by installing anti-ad blockers on its website, making it impossible to use if you have any ad blocking software installed on your browsers.

For reference, Reddit user Divtya_Budhlya made this helpful graphic of what an average ToI article looks like without ad block software. The news (in green) makes up BARELY 20% of the page.

In fact, a lot of other news sites, including Hindustan Times and Amar Ujala, have installed the anti-ad block software on their website today.

Of course, you can still read their articles by browsing in incognito mode, if you really want to.

Of course, you can still read their articles by browsing in incognito mode, if you really want to.

But, understandably, not many people are thrilled about the new direction that news sites have taken.

Not the best decision, guys.
