yes, but adblock will not block all adds.
Adds pay for your free TV viewing and are a part of the free TV viewing experience.

Ads pay us computer programmer so I do not tell the public about ways to block ads. And I think I am the only user of samsung tv browser.


"Does adblock plus work for this browser?"
How? Where to click?

Pretty sure you can't install AdBlock Plus on Samsung TVs. The AdBlock Plus website only lists support for the following browsers:
Firefox
Chrome
Internet Explorer
Android
Opera
Safari
Yandex Browser

I believe the browser that comes with Samsung smart TVs are designed by Samsung themselves. Unless they have started using a browser from the list above then I don't think you can use AdBlock Plus for this scenario.

AFAIK, Samsungs browser is based on Android with proprietary extension and enhancements to optimize it for the Samsung architecture.  There is no AdBlock Plus version specific for Samsung, but you might try installing the Android version which might work depending on which hooks Samsung bent to customize it.

The browsers built into smart tvs don't generally give you the ability to customize them with adons. Same thing with the browsers built into your phone/tablet/etc.

The workaround for this is to setup rules on your router to block the ad serving sites. For example, in my router (192.168.1.1), under "Security" I can specify "blocked sites". Here I can define domains that I want blocked and I'd insert ad server addresses. For example:
207.net
247realmedia.com
247realmedia.com
2mdn.net
2o7.net
33across.com
51yes.com
abmr.net

While browsing the web, if you come across ads, you'd simply right click on them to see the domain being used to serve the ad, then add it to the blocked list.

What is your router model number? You can look up instructions from the manufacturers web site on how to integrate security rules.
