This has always been my favorite site for its clean interface and the live sportday commentary. I have been using it for years. It has always had an ad down at the bottom right, which Is no problem, but in the last week it has added these stupid video ads that automatically play and blast sound out through your speakers/headphones until you click pause - And it happens each time you switch to a new page.

 

Is it only me? Is this new? What a shame. I may have to stop using it and go to sky sports or something.

I can't say that I've seen that. Could be a 'feature' that's be forced onto non-UK users?

It could be - I am in the states. It is the same ad for cough syrup every time.

Yeah that is sh*t. In the UK there is no advertising because the BBC is funded by the public and (I think) is prevented from advertising other products. Is there a way for you to install an adblocker or no-script or something?
